Vintage Easter

 I know of a family that has 3 kids all under 3  years old and they don't have much money.  So, this year I am going to help them out for Easter.  I am giving them decorations and I will also be making  Easter baskets for each of them. I lucked out yesterday and found some great decorations at the thrift stores.

 These two signs stick in the ground outside and they are from the 90's.  2.99!

 But these were the big find.

 These are each about 18 inches tall, brand new, have great detail and they were 3.99 each.

 They are about to be loved by a bunch of little kids.

 I continue to pick up these vintage Easter trinkets to use in all the baskets I will be making. Some of these are salt and pepper shakers.

I'll use the boxes as candy holders and some are just cute little porcelain figures.  I'll show you the baskets when I assemble them. I love the idea of using these in baskets.  When I was little I had figures similar to these and I loved them.  I've paid around 49 cents for each of these and they are so much better than the junk which is for sale at much higher prices.  I find that most of these are very clean because they probably sat on shelves for years. A quick trip through the dishwasher or soaked for a bit in hot water with Dawn and they are as good as new.
