Vintage Easter Collectibles and an African Violet

March 21, 2012

I'm all into vintage, but as I stated in an earlier post, I don't have many Easter vintage items.

I collect Lefton angels from the 1950's,1960's and 1970's, mostly Christmas porcelain/ceramic angels.

Occasionally, I get other holiday angels. I think my Mom gave me this one.

This sweet little April angel with an Easter egg wrapped in a bow, is marked "Japan".

This is a George W. Horner & Co. Ltd (made in England) Assortment of Toffees tin that is from my childhood. In the foreground, a vintage silver button egg made by me with a styrofoam egg and my button stash.

Lastly, I have a vintage bowl that holds three African Violets. Two pink and this purple one. The purple one is in full bloom.

They never have bloomed all at once.  I will share the pink ones in a about a month or so.  (No outdoor blooms to share yet up North!)

I hope you enjoyed this hodge podge blog post!

  1. I've never seen one of those little, vintage angels holding an Easter egg before, Carlene. It's really cute. And I like your idea of covering the styrofoam egg with old buttons. ;)
