Easter Decor Part 1

I'm sure glad my grandmother decided ceramics was the thing back in the 1960's because she painted many lovely little pieces that I now own.  The next few blog posts will feature a few Easter items that I treasure!


Isn't this basket adorable?  Her name is carved on the bottom of each piece she made.  You'll also notice the fabric decoupaged egg to the right.  Her mother, my great-grandmother, made the eggs.  Here's part of the collection:


I have more eggs on the mantle, but this gives you an idea.  I bring out these Easter items every single year. Handmade items are so much more special than buying something off the shelf in today's world.  So many items are mass-produced overseas and you have to ask yourself if these items will become heirlooms.  If not, then considering crafting something special for your child or grandchild that will stand the test of time.
