Easter Baskets on Parade!

Pretty pastel blooms, fuzzy little yellow chicks, pink twitchy nosed bunnies and most importantly the celebration of our risen Savior...oh how I love Easter!  When it comes to decorating and crafting, Easter is my holiday!  Love the true meaning of the Season, love the pretty colors everywhere I look and love the chocolate bunnies...mmmmm!  The stores are bringing out the Easter goodies and I am in a fluffy pink mood!  I kicked off my Easter crafting this weekend by putting together some baskets for the shop.  Between the Graphics Fairy and Miss Rhea's Free Clip Art Mondays, I have had plenty of vintage Easter inspiration for pretty tags to tie to my baskets.  Each basket is filled with paper shreds in a color coordinating with my handcrafted tag.

I was able to get out and do a little thrifting this weekend!  This sweet child's tea set is one of my favorite finds!  I can't wait to set it up at the shop!

Classic Winnie the pooh and Beatrix Potter stories in the petite hardback style are good sellers for me and work well with my displays as they almost always have pretty pastel covers.  I was fortunate enough to find a whole stack of them this weekend!  They make great Easter Basket fillers!

Reprinted antique Easter cards in vintage frames are a great way to add a touch of Easter to a display without investing in a lot of seasonal decor.  If they don't sell before Easter, I can change out the image.  I actually added little touches of glitter to these images but wasn't able to capture it in my photographs.

These peach pottery pitchers caught my eye and I knew they would be a welcome addition to my shop inventory.  A little larger than the average creamer, they are perfect for syrup when you're serving up a platter of waffles or pancakes!

A Big Big thank you to The Graphics Fairy and to Miss Rhea for the beautiful free Easter images!  I had the best time scouring through the amazing ephemera they offer and creating tags for my Easter baskets!

And I thank YOU for your sweet visit!  Do you love Easter crafts and decorating for Spring?  Stay tuned...there will be much more to come from the Girl in Pink! 

Best Wishes and Blessings,
