VINTAGE THINGS THURSDAY

I'm joining in on the Vintage Things Thursday party over at http://coloradolady.blogspot.com/search/label/Vintage%20Thingies%20Thursdays. Thanks Suzanne for hosting for us! Today, I would like to share with you some vintage egg vases. I had never heard of them until about a year ago, when I saw them on someones blog. I immediately went on e-bay to see if I could find one. The first one I got, was the larger one, which measures 6". They are ceramic and have hand painted flowers on them. They come in 6" sizes, and then the smaller ones which are about 4". I liked the cracked egg effect along the top edge, and they all are footed at the bottom. I also liked that they come in all pretty pastel colors. Even though these are all blue, the shades are different, and the flowers are somewhat different also. Now, I am on the lookout for a pink one. Some are made by Napco, and others just have numbers on them. The little pink basket in the front, is made from a vintage jello mold. I purchased that on Etsy. Click on any picture to enlarge. I just fell in love with this vintage style Easter cart. It is a ceramic, and the cart is paper mache. I found it on clearance at Fortunoff last year. They have since gone out of business. :(


This is a vintage style egg, also purchased at Fortunoff. The egg is paper mache, and filled with little chicks galore. the are tucked in with yellow tulle all around them, which is hard to see in the picture. The egg is covered in a pretty aqua colored foil, and finished off with millinery flowers.




Thank you for stopping by, and please go visit Colorado Lady's blog to see the other participants, and more vintage goodies!

Hi, Dear heart...these are just fabulous...and the little chicks..so sweet.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I can't help but brag a little on Cate, our very first great-granddaughter. Pink Saturday always seems the perfect place to do this! ;O)

You really have your Easter decorating mojo on, girlfriend! That bowl of chicks is just too cute! I found a cute Easter bunny at Goodwill a few weeks ago and she's still in the trunk of my car...that's how Easter-fied I am around here. :o

Looks like you got the new background up without a hitch. It really is gorgeous!
