Vintage Easter

Have you started your Easter shopping or sewing yet?

My dollies are wanting new dresses for Easter.

They admired this Shirley Temple plaid.

And look at these sweet babies in the vintage crib for sale on eBay!

Be still my heart.
She is from the same seller.

And here is a sweet dresser for dollies clothes.

Cute cards I couldn't resist.

These sweet things are available right now on eBay, but they are pricey.

Has anyone started their "Spoolies" yet for Sandy's Easter Swap?
I have some ideas.

I'll try to make some chicks!

Easter eye candy.

These spools were found at Stampington, on Pinterest. I don't know who made them.
Gorgeous wrapped in velvet ribbons.

I love Easter colors, pastels and violets.
I used to look for violets every Spring with my Grandmother.
I miss her very much.

Well, I have to go see about Ms.Wilma,
she's in a snit because I didn't find a new dress for her!
(You know it's all about her!)

Have a great week-end, 
Love from me and you-know-who.

Miss Wilma looks pretty spiffy in her pearls!

You know you've got me peeking at Ebay now! I don't buy on Ebay but I sure love to look! The dollies in the crib are precious! Love the sweet dresses...and everything! I think WE'RE sisters!

Love the Shirley Temple plaid dress, and the light blue one!
The cards are very cute, too.
I don't understand the spools, though. What are they for?

Gorgeous! Visiting from Pink Saturday.

Your comment is always appreciated!

Marlynne said...

Oh those precious little baby dresses. That's what they were like when our babies were comin on. Only problem we had little boys but I had a few little girl dresses I kept just in case. I think a dress would take away from Ms. Wilma's elegant appearance.. Marlynne

Ramona JapaneseRedneck said...

hahaha, those pearls on her are too cute.

~Damita's Pretty Wrap~ said...

Such eye candy on this post!! So many cute springy Easter things! I have already started decorate some :) Ms. Wilma is cute as always! :) Can't wait to see your spools!! I'm having a giveaway on my blog this week :) xxo Holly

Jill said...

I am trying to imagine in my head what I need for the spoolies, this is my first swap, so just hoping I can live up to everyone's craftiness...

Looks like you are well on your way... said...

Ms. Wilma is adorable in her pearls. I was thinking of all the things I'd say in a comment and lost them when I saw her. She's so cute!
Okay - I remember a few things... love the doily - very pretty. And those chicks in the box - that's cute too. You've posted different kinds of cute and I enjoyed sharing them with you.
Hugs to Ms. Wilma - be sure and tell her she's simply gorgeous in her pearls. ;)

What wonderful items to look at. Love everything and they all make me smile. Thanks again for stopping by my blog. Take Care!

Patti said...

Oh, the sweet little cribful of huggies! I just love dollies of the past. I have a few, but they all came from yard sales, and most have no clothes, poor dears, and I have to put them in something else. I love to look at ebay, too. Sometimes I pick out a little treat!
