New Life!

Easter Sunday......the day the Lenten Tree comes to life!




My Dad painted the eggs to hang on the Easter Tree. One of my favorites is the egg in the background with a little cabin painted on it!


My first Easter basket, a little faded now, with a present from the Easter Bunny....my favorite stuffed animal ....Cuddles.....as you can see Cuddles received a ton of love....and an Easter duck from Elizabeth.


I found the yellow duck at the flea market and the green one is from Erica...
a perfect match!! And my Mom's vintage cake mold in the background.


A happy little girl in 1960, with the Easter Tree and my basket!

A happy momma today, 53 years later, with 3 of my 5 girls home to celebrate Easter with Mr. Math and I.

Happy Easter!!

  13. Love that your Dad painted the Easter eggs, and I agree, the one with the cabin painted on it is so pretty. How lucky that you also have your mother's bunny cake mold, your Easter basket, and that sweet stuffed animal. They make a wonderful vignette. Precious photo of you dressed in your Easter outfit. laurie
