Breaking Out the Easter Crafts

It's been too cold here in Old Bucks County.  We need a little Springtime to brighten our spirits!

From cute, kitschy little bunnies.....

To primitive, old tin eggs - let me break out the fresh colors of Spring!

Aunt Candy and I hit the motherload of treasure hunts when a woman who crafted for a living had a yard sale filled with vintage Easter crafts.   We filled Candy's trunk and like two little school girls, we giggled all the way home.  And like two teenagers, we decided it wasn't enough and drove back for more!

Most of the crafts are still in their original packages too.    Plenty to keep the kids busy during these cold months.  I may even put together some lots and post in my Etsy shop. 

 Teeny-weeny little chicks and bunnies, I remember from the '70s and '80s.

 And lookie what else I just found.  It's a nice wood curio, but could use a fresh coat of paint.

Now, I've got the supplies.  If only motivation and inspiration would kick in!


  1. Oh my goodness. I'm seriously jealous of your EASTER supplies! You lucky lucky lady. I can't wait to see what you create. Happy crafting!
