Vintage Easter Hop and Roosters Gone Wild!

I am late to the party but realized that I have lots to share for this fun easter hop! Thanks to Joan for hosting this fun event!
My post is picture heavy, so hang in there!
My first picture is of several items using vintage images...the bottle, the little hanging banner, the egg on a stick. And the little tin egg is actually vintage, one of my swap goodies which I will be sharing more of on April 3rd....

I love this birdie salt shaker, and even though the vintage jello molds aren't truly Easter, they are colorful and will make it somewhere into my decor, maybe holding goodies for the kids at the table.....


These postcards are from my collection...I love easter postcards!


And these are some goodies from my childhood... 2 chickadees handmade by my grandma's , some chalkware lambs, some flocked easter decorations...the card and bobble-head chick are new.....

Today I went to my local flea and found a couple more goodies to share.... the egg is so pretty, the music no longer works but I just love it anyway...and more Easter postcards......



That is all for my Easter goodies but here is the rest of my purchases from the flea... 2 pretty bird postcards and some cameos and buttons....



And..... ROOSTERS GONE WILD!!! The story behind these is.... I went last month to the same flea and there was a nice lady selling a collection of Roosters. After much deliberation, I chose one to bring home. My mom loved it!! So much !!! So much that all month I heard.."I sure hope that Rooster lady is still there!", "you should've bought more Roosters!" "I hope she has some left, they sure are cute!" And on and on....
So today I found "the Rooster Lady" and fortunately she had quite a few to choose from...I told her my story and after picking out 3 she threw in a 4th and said "for goodness sake this should keep her quiet (I am sure she meant happy) Well, Mom was thrilled! (and I am pretty happy too!) So here they are:

The spotted one on the back left has holes to put toothpicks with little snacks in and I could not leave that long necked one alone!
Well...hope you had fun! And have a great week! I will be back soon! karen....

I'm so jealous of your Mom! I'm a rooster collector, and I would've grabbed those cuties too!
I love all of your Easter decorations, especially that windup egg, and all of the things from your childhood!
Happy Easter!

That muscial egg is such a great find - it's beautiful with or without music! Love the vintage postcards - I have two and really enjoy the old illustrations. Love the roosters too!
