Easter Surprise!

I was at my Mom's house cleaning and I came across a box 
that had my name on it.

In it was a bunch of stuff I left behind when I moved to California
in my 20's........over 100 years ago.......

This little box was in there

and this box

When I saw them I knew exactly what was in them!

Of course they were Grams......

Gram's peak a boo egg....
Do they still make these?

 My sister and I had some when we were kids.
Of course they are long gone!  

How is it Gram's withheld the test of time!?

On my camera you can see everything just fine.......

This picture looks like some kind of sea creature!

There are flowers, trees, a little cottage in the back 
and of course a girl with a basket and an Easter Bunny!

This was in the other box!

This was Gram's too!
The bunny and the carrots are made out of some kind of soap stuff.

The ribbon has broken on his little bunny ears!

Whoa.........not a good look Mr. Bunny.

But look at his cute belly button!!

Then of course, I have all my antique 
Easter cards on display!

This one always makes me laugh.....
She kinds of a creepy lookin kid!!

Everybody have a wonderful Easter Sunday!


  1. What fun to find those things again! They sure are in great shape still. And I agree, the girl on the card does look a little creepy. :)

    Happy Easter!

  2. I bet that was so neat to go through and find your treasures after all these years. I love the way you are displaying your Easter cards. Hope you have a wonderful holiday!

  3. How fun girl to find that hidden treasure! I know all my stuff is somewhere packed away in the attic. I should go dig it out sometime. Have a wonderful Easter!

  4. How exciting...I love that you have so much from your grandmother. I have so much too and am so thankful. There are days I look at the stuff and it brings tears, but there is also so much joy....

    Take care,

  5. Looks like you won the Easter Egg Hunt contest, hands down! Have a most joyous Easter.

  6. I wish you fantastic Easter with many, many chocolate, funny days and good mood!!! ;)

    Big hugs

  7. Fun to find all those treasures from your childhood.

    Happy Easter, Jane! The little girl is a bit creepy, agreed!

  8. I've been thinking about those sugar eggs too, and would love to see a tutorial on them. I remember them, but have no clue how they were ever made. Love your vintage Easter cards. You're right, that one 'chick' is creepy! Happy Easter!

  9. What wonderful treasures to find Jane! So fitting considering the name of your blog! :-) I remember those eggs but haven't seen any like them in a very long time. And I love the idea of doing the vintage Easter cards, creepy little girl and all! LOL!
    Thanks for sharing this with us at Inspiration Friday this week~Vanessa

  11. I love all things vintage, but those are really special. Treasure them!

    Happy Easter ...
