Vintage Easter Blog Hop

Welcome to the Vintage Easter Blog Hop!!! This hop is being hosted by Joan at Anything Goes Here in celebration of all  vintage treasures relating to Easter.  After you take a peek at my Easter Vintage,  hop on over to her blog to view the complete list of all those who are participating.  I took a minute to look at some of the posts and believe me there are some amazing treasures out there.  I hope you enjoy my little contribution......  
First a few vintage greeting cards and sweet Easter images.
This Hummel figurine entitled "Playmates"  is not ment for Easter but I adore those little bunnies.
 
I am not sure how my Mother will feel being a part of a VINTAGE Easter collection(hehehe)  but these pictures of her and my Aunt in their Easter best are priceless and I just had to share.  Mom is on the right in this photo....
and on the left in this one.

This photo is of my Mother-in-law (the little girl sitting on the steps) her Mother and her two sisters all decked out in there Easter bonnets.
The last Vintage Easter item I would like to share with you is this wonderful basket. I came across it when cleaning out the attic of my Grandmothers home after she passed away.  I loved the look of it with it's strips of braided straw. It became even more of a treasure once my mom told me what it had been used for.   This was the basket used by my Grandmother to carry a sample of their Easter meal to church to be blessed by the priest.  Once the blessing was given the meal was carried home and enjoyed by all.  Eventhough we no longer carry on that tradition, I love that this basket was something used by my Grandmother.

 
Thanks for hopping by to take a look at my Vintage Easter and for spending part of your day with me.  I wish you all a Blessed Easter.

OMGoodness! I just adore the pictures of your mom and her sister. Also the one of your mother in-law. These are just the best! Where would we be today if they did not invent the camera?

I love the story behind the basket and the pictures of your mother were wonderful!! Easter Sunday church always meant a new dress when I was growing up.
Happy Sunday.

The vintage Graphics are so sweet and I loved the old photos of your family!! I remember we used to get new dresses for Easter when we were little- I don't think many people do that sort of thing anymore-too bad

You have many Easter things I have never seen. I loved the pictures of your sweet Mom and her sister and Edith, too. Your grandmother's basket is certainly a treasure. Loved all of your images, too.

You have such a great Easter card collection Mimi, and I especially love the one with the rooster and chicks! And that basket is just dreamy. I love the shape of it, and it must mean so much to you now that you know the history behind it. What a great family heirloom!
Happy Easter!

What wonderful old cards. I love your vintage family photos. I just love the way little ladies used to dress up at Easter. So neat.

Marilyn said...

Hummels always seem so sweet to me and those bunnies certainly do fit the theme. I've not seen that particular piece before. The story about the blessings basket is also quite interesting. Thanks for sharing everything. ♥♫

Debbie said...

I love looking at old photos. The Easter bonnets of the past were so fancy, and the curls in your mom's hair adorable. The cards are very cute, I really like the rooster card.

~Kim~ said...

Wonderful pictures!!! I really love Easter and the spring prints on dresses that it brings with it!! What has happened to the tradition of the Easter Bonnet? Not that I would wear one... ;-))

The Happy Homemaker said...

What a beautiful tradition.I'm glad you were able to keep your grandmother's basket.I also adore your vintage illustrations.I think I'm stuck in Storybook Land...they just draw me right in!Happy Easter!

Shirley said...

Your pictures are adorable. I loved your basket. There is a lot of tradition that is no longer celebrated the way it was done in the past. You don't see the Easter Bonnets in church like we use to do. That was one of the things you had to have was that hat to wear to church. With your permission you have a couple of vintage pictures that I would like to use in my blog. Enjoy your day.

Everything is lovely, but I especially love the photos, the real Easter memories.
