Vintage Inspiration Friday #34 Inspired for Easter

Today I wanted to share with you a few of my special religious Easter pieces.

The old Easter Postcard Images are some of my favorites.
The crosses adorned with flowers and lilies,
inspired me to remake a florist's cross base
that I retrieved from my father-in-law's funeral last September.

It had been covered in lovely fall flowers,
so a few days later when we went back I took it home,
instead of letting it be thrown away.

I covered it in glue and then lightly pressed moss to cover it.
Then added two peace lilies and a cluster of green hydrangea and ivy.

Now, it blesses me each time I see it.

Antique crucifixes and prints are a few other things that I collect
which remind me of Easter.

These next two prints are on reverse mirrors
 that are setting on the buffet in the Dining Room.

(did you know, I just love lambs?)

And this old print of the last supper hangs in our Dining Room

And another antique crucifix in my entry hall.

One more Easter vignette;
a little moss covered rabbit setting in an ironstone vegetable dish...

I imagine he hopes he's not on the menu.

And here are a few links from last weeks VIF:

The Summer Kitchen Girls put together this adorable little planted teacup

Sandi at A Cottage Muse took us shopping

The Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore
showed us how He and She decorate together.

shared a silver memory
