Vintage Easter Hop

Joan at Anything Goes Here is having a Party.

A Vintage Easter Blog Hop
to celebrate all the great vintage Easter goods.

I don't have many really vintage Easter things,
but I can't wait to see everyone else's!

This is a vintage Spring wheelbarrow
that I've had several years
that always comes out at Easter.

My helpers are here in the sunroom
enjoying the faux carrots.

A vintage "Sees" candy container,

And a vintage Strawberry flat
with a very old pair of bunnies.

This old pottery rabbit planter

Old chalk nativity lambs

And because Easter is also known as
 "Resurrection Sunday"...

This is a print on a mirror under glass
of the Last Supper.

And an old crucifix that hangs
on a mirror in the Entry Hall.

Please visit with Joan and all the "hoppers"

Blessings to you and yours on this Palm Sunday.
May we all remember the real meaning of Easter.
Rebirth and renewal of our own hearts
through our Lord's great sacrifice for us.

Show and Tell Friday: Lambs

This is my first time to be a part of
Show and Tell Friday.
Cindy at My Romantic Home is our gracious hostess.

With Easter almost here, I thought I would share
a few of my lamb prints and paintings.
I've been collecting for the last seven years.

Some are old, some are new
but all are well loved , and part of my collection.

I think this would have to be my favorite,
love the sweet message of it.

These can be found all around the house,
so I've brought a few of them
 to where the lighting is better.

This painting is in the Living Room,
an Anniversary gift from my husband
a few years ago.

Part of a set of pastoral prints
that were a Christmas gift.

Another very old oval print in
it's original metal frame.

A print of one of William Bouguereau's
famous Madonna and child paintings.

Vintage Western Landscape

This is a Christmas postcard
from the early 1900's.

This is probably the oldest print that I have of sheep.
Love the Country French scene.
(please excuse the glare.)

Another favorite

I also collect vintage Religious images.
This is one of my favorites, with lambs.

Thank you Cindy, at My Romantic Home.

I also am linking up last minute with Laurie,
from Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie,

If you're new to my blog,
I'd love to have you leave a comment
so I can come back and say Hello.

I also have an open Bible Study blog,
please come by for a visit.

Hope you're having a wonderful week before

hugs and blessings,

White Wednesday; Spring in the Kitchen

Bunnies, chicks, and ducks oh my,
there seem to be a few of them in my kitchen.

I found this vintage Easter
 postcard print a couple of years ago
and framed it with a shabby little frame.

With the warmer weather I've opened the doors
to the sunroom and the kitties and I are enjoying
having our space back.
Don't tell them, they think it's "outside".

I found a few white things
on my flea market rounds recently and somehow
they've just landed in my kitchen.
Ever have that happen to you?

On their way to the antique mall booth...
but they just don't actually "get there"?

This old ironstone bowl, chips and all,
just needed to stay home with me.

Love those cracks and crazing.

Some napkins with a hint of spring color.

And an old concrete duckling waddled by...

I've never met a sugar bowl 
that I didn't fall in love with!
(even without the lid)

And my ironstone Homer Laughlin pitcher.

Bunn-bunn joins in the fun, too.

A few weeks ago at a city wide sale,
I found this little white cookbook holder.

Don't know what it's supposed to be,
or "used to be",
 but for now, it's a "cookbook holder".

1930 Kelvinator Fridge companion cookbook.

Everyone has room for a "Kelvinator"...

Don't ya just love these graphics?

An iron bird and a vintage bluebird tea towel
just say Spring.

Thank you Kathleen at Faded Charm!
Now go see what everyone else
is up to for White Wednesday.

Hope you're having a wonderful week!

 is just a week and a half away!

I've been "nesting"...

In the Spring I'm all about birds

and nests,

and garden-y things.

I found this little birdie in the twigs
 at a local floral supply company.

So today I played a little and made some nests,

for Easter gifts

and for my new space at Spring Creek.

These are just a few,

I sort of went "bird brain" making them.

(I'm a messy crafter!)


I always want to fill up any kind of "container".

An old ironstone berry bowl...

or dainty creamer...

(oh shoot, I'm a sucker for fuzzy chicks)

or my ironstone kitchen pitcher.

Hope you're having a sweet weekend,
full of fun and things of Spring.

We just missed a snowstorm,
it's heading for Kansas City...
sorry y'all.

love ya,
