I have a combination of Vintage and Vintage style items for you to see...
First is something very, very vintage. It is an Easter picture of my older (sorry Barb) sister and me in 1953...
Easter was not in June in 1953. Apparently it took a long time for my parents to finally develop the camera film from Easter. Back in those times, you always got a new dress, hat and white cotton gloves for Easter. Our Mother made many of our dresses but I'm not sure about this one. I was 4 in this picture and my sister was 12. I'm sure I was looking so stern becasue she was probably bossing me around.
Some other vintage or nearly vintage items...
Will you think it "odd" if I tell you that I kinda collect carrots? I didn't mean to start this collection ...it just sort of happened when I kept seeing more and more cute handmade ones. I think the bunnies are happy about it.
My prize handmade velveteen rabbit, complete with Easter bonnet. She is signed and dated (1986, which is when I adopted her)) by the New Jersey folk artist Lou Souders. I have several of Lou's pieces but she is my favorite.
Ooops, how did that sneak in there? He's not vintage but he sure is cute!
Enjoy hopping everyone and thanks for stopping by...I love to have visitors!
