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.
