I'm joining in on some Easter fun with Joan at Anything Goes Here.
This dapper fellow was in my Grandmother's house when we moved there back around 1959. He didn't make an appearance until quite a few years later, though. Mr. Rabbit was hiding on a shelf way back in a closet so we never did discover his heritage or age. Mr. R. comes out briefly for the Easter Parade so his clothes won't fade even more. His hat is stiff felt, while his other clothes are plain felt except for the ruffles on his shirt!
My goose egg treasures were made by Dad's cousin. Little Miss Muffet is a small ceramic figurine with that pesky spider beside her!
A pink velvet ribbon, gold braid trim, and lace covered with tiny seed and bugle beads makes an intricate design on the back of the egg.
Here is another in pale peach with a colorful topper of rhinestone flowers.
The shellac all ran down to the bottom! The bottom on the outside is decorated, too. Just imagine the patience it took to create these.
One in lavender beads with a clear rhinestone top. I have several others that this talented woman made, as well as some needlepoint pieces. I was the lucky grandchild, as my brother didn't want any of these jewels.
Thanks Joan for hosting this event. Friends be sure to visit the other blogs for more Easter goodies!
