Happy Easter and Passover everyone! Passover begins on Friday, and Easter is on Sunday. I have lots of pics to show you this week!
First is this McDonald's display that Katherine wanted because she collects Transformers and My Little Ponies (she's 19, mind you!). They called Saturday and said it was ours. She is so beside herself!
Here's a 1953 Mattel Easter egg that I acquired this year on eBay. Music doesn't work, but it's red!
Here's the full shelf display with some other Easter eggs (a gift from Carey of Chicory Nits last year). The mushroom candle holders were thrifted last month, they're so cute. The round tin in the middle is new, from eBay, also. A close-up is in the next photo.
Isn't it so different with the brightly colored jewels all over it? Directly behind it is a Homer Laughlin "Riviera" serving tray that I picked up at a thrift store a few weeks ago for $1.00! Nothing wrong with it - no chips or cracks, or crazing. My heart was beating fast because I already have a few Riviera pieces, the saucers in front of the tray, and a serving bowl which you can see in the previous photo on the above shelf. Another "official" collection started!
(That's poster putty at the base to keep it from sliding.)
Last week I said I'd show you the aprons I estated. While ironing them I also ironed my own "granny" apron, so here it is all neatly pressed.
Here are the others ~
This blue one is the one I'm considering keeping. Not sure yet.
