Though Christmas and Halloween may be far more popular holidays, Easter has its large share of fans. So it’s no surprise that we have plenty of Easter village houses. After all, if you’re a company that sells these houses and accessories, why stop at Christmas when you can sell similarly themed items all year long? Sure these village sets can be very expensive. But they’re popular enough for me to do multiple posts on them. With Easter, you find plenty of houses in pastel colors as well as bunnies, chicks, flowers, butterflies, and sheep. And yes, there’s plenty of cuteness to go around. Though many of these houses may be made out of porcelain, some of these Easter village enthusiasts opt for the putz variety. Sometimes, they make their own putz house which you might see on Etsy. Anyway, for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasury of charming Easter houses and villages. Enjoy.

  1. An Easter putz village should always be all glitter.

Fun with Easter Bonnets (Fourth Edition)

lady-bonnet

One of the key traditions of Easter is the Easter bonnet. Though originally worn by ladies for Easter church services in less casual times, it has somewhat fallen out of fashion in that regard. Yet, Easter bonnets have always been nonetheless elaborate since the holiday marks the end of Lent. However, in places like New York, thanks to Easter parades, Easter bonnets have risen to a whole new level. No longer are they seen as what women wear to church anymore. Or even women in general. But the kind of wacky hat to wear for a Easter parade. Some of these hats may seem straight out of a Las Vegas showgirl routine. Some may be DIY. Some may have flowers, eggs, chicks, sheep, and other Easter motifs. Some may not. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of extravagant Easter bonnets.

  1. Some girls go for a beehive while some prefer butterflies.

Then a again the woman’s hat may be meant to imitate straw. Yet, the butterflies are pretty.

2. You’d almost think she got her hat from outer space.

This an old photo of a woman wearing a hat that would rival Lady Gaga. I don’t know if any explanation is necessary.

3. You can always line your straw bunny hat with chocolate.

Though I’d say it’s a waste of chocolate. Love the flower and fuzzy bunny ears.

4. Sometimes Easter can take a prehistoric turn.

The triceratops even has fancy eggs. I guess this is meant for a boy who’s a big fan of Jurassic Park.

5. Care for a bunny on your bonnet?

This plush bunny even has its own bonnet. Yes, it’s kind of confusing. But it’s adorable.

6. Someone must be on the springy side of the Force.

Has pipe cleaners with squiggles attached to eggs. Got to like Darth Vader and a clone soldier.

7. A broad hat can leave plenty of space.

Her had includes eggs, flowers, and a basket. It even says, “Happy Easter.”

8. There are many ways to accessorize a top hat.

This one has so many Easter stuff on it that it makes Willy Wonka jealous. And all topped off with an Easter egg shell.

9. Guess you can’t get out of doing laundry all the time.

She’s wearing a clothesline and washboard. Not sure if the clothes fit her. But it’s clever.

10. This little bird flies out of its cage to freedom.

Sure it might look outrageous. But for an Easter bonnet, it’s modest.

11. An Easter bonnet can never have enough pink.

It has a nest on top and eggs and bunnies around the brim. But I love the purple butterfly the best.

12. An Easter bonnet can never have enough eggs, chicks, or feathers.

The feathers are in all kinds of colors. The eggs are sparkle. But the chicks are all yellow pom poms.

13. Wonder why the bunny’s diving in this bonnet.

Well, I guess there are some carrots in the bin. Love the creativity behind this.

14. My, that’s a large ice cream cone.

Yes, she has an giant ice cream cone on her head. But at least it has chocolate bits on the top.

15. A lamb relishes among the flowers.

This has a plush lamb on top of a hat enclosed with a fence. And yes, it’s adorable.

And to believe it, it has pom pom chicks on it. Though I like the pink decomesh ribbon trim.

18. It won’t be Easter without some purple Easter grass.

Kind of reminds me of Shaun the Sheep. And it’s most likely made by a child.

These little sheep love being on the top grass. And they’re surrounded by tulips and daisies.

Easter Greetings from the Days of Yesteryear (Fourth Edition)

37e067b18b1b82380f20bd38a85ad7e4

During the Easter season, you might see a lot of these Easter greeting cards. Many of them depict beautiful imagery like you see above. Some of them might have cute bunnies and chicks. Some may have colored eggs and Easter baskets. Yet, while sending Easter greeting cards isn’t very common nowadays, people would send these back in the day. But while some of these may evoke warm feelings of nostalgia, some might make you scratch your head in confusion. Or inspire laughter. Since I started doing posts on vintage Easter cards, I’ve found plenty, especially if they pertain to anthropomorphic critters like rabbits and chicks. This time is no different. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasury of crazy vintage Easter cards that time forgot.

  1. Sergeant Bunny’s selling some eggs and chicks.

Here he has some eggs in bags and nets and chicks in a cage. Whew, selling this stuff must be a lot of work.

2. Gather round to hear some homeless bunny street musicians.

Heard they’re a folk music band called Benny Long Ears and the Hare Hutch. And they’re basically playing for carrots.

3. Easter greetings from the egg shell hot air balloon.

While it may look cute, you have to wonder about the laws of physics in this one. Because I’m not sure if an eggshell has any wind resistance.

4. Sometimes you have to lounge around in a giant eggshell.

Because walking your rabbits is always exhausting. Oh, that’s supposed to be a wagon?

5. Hope you can make yourselves at home at a giant egg house.

Apparently, they come from a world with two kinds of rabbits. Ones that wear clothes and walk on hind legs. And ones that don’t. Also, the chicken couple doesn’t seem to mind that the a sentient rabbit is hoarding eggs.

6. Nothing says Easter like a naked child on top a lamb.

However, the sheep doesn’t seem thrilled with the kid riding on it and incessantly ringing the bell. Yes, that can be annoying.

7. Easter greetings from the chick hikers.

However, Jerry wasn’t pleased with Stanley’s habit of singing and playing accordion music. If Stan didn’t stop, Jerry swore to God he’d whack him with his cane.

8. “Who ordered the Easter eggs?”

While the Easter Bunny fills Easter baskets once a year, he mostly works as a waiter. And he mostly gets by on tips.

9. Be careful holding Easter eggs on your dress.

Because the mama and daddy chicks are out for blood. Wait, chicks have chicks? This is messed up.

10. “So, kids, you want your eggs wrapped?”

And there you see the chicks looking by as the rabbit vender sells their fellow brethren to children. And they can’t do anything about it.

11. Children always delight seeing bunny egg races.

Funny, how the bunny’s driving two other bunnies to run the chariot. Not sure how that works.

12. Since Easter opens spring, love is in the air.

Let’s hope that egg doesn’t break. Or else the girl gets egg all over her face.

And I see the kids and the rabbit are at the haggling stage. Don’t really want to know how this goes.

Though these bunnies are stacked on each other, one is worried how their tower will hold. Let’s hope it doesn’t fall.

The Wonderful World of Peep Shows (No, Not that Kind) (Fifth Edition)

No Easter can be complete on my blog without a post on peep dioramas. Though peeps are sugar-coated marshmallow candy unfit for human consumption, you can easily use them to make your own peep dioramas. You even enter them in contests. One of the most famous is sponsored by the Washington Post. These peep scenes can come in many different varieties. Some can be parodies of significant works in pop culture. Some can be satirical depictions of current or history.  Or some can be showcases to aspects of everyday life or a particular location. Some of these peep dioramas can be made by children or families. Some by repressed art majors or artists. Yet, whatever the case, these marshmallow scenes can be a joy to look at. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of delightful peep dioramas for your Easter season.

Top of the Morning with These Lucky Saint Patrick’s Day Craft Projects (Third Edition)

thZA3N4SGY

Now it’s on to the crafts. Since Saint Patrick’s Day isn’t as big a holiday like Easter. But that doesn’t keep stores from selling green decorations as soon as Valentine’s Day is over. Because there are plenty of people known to go all out on March 17. While green is a predominant color, you also have pots of gold coins, rainbows, shamrocks, and leprechauns. And while it’s typically a holiday associated with parades and heavy drinking, there are plenty of stuff for families to do with the kids. Like do little acts of mischief in the house and pretend it was the work of leprechauns crashing your place. I’m sure your little kids would love it like my sister did when she was 3. Nonetheless, here is another assortment of St. Patrick’s Day crafts for your reading pleasure. Enjoy.

This one uses a 4 leaf clover print. Nevertheless, I’m sure you can find it on Etsy.

Figure Skating Fashion Disasters On Ice

Figure Skating

This weeks marks the start of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeong Chang, South Korea. I haven’t done much on these events mostly since I’ve written most of my Olympics posts back during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. And I mostly combined both the winter and summer stuff in each post, save for the Ancient Greek Olympic article. Mostly because the Ancient Greeks didn’t have a Winter Olympics since winter sports weren’t really their thing. I mean they lived in a warm Mediterranean climate where snow only existed on mountains for God’s sake. If there was anything close to a Winter Olympics in the ancient world, it would’ve most likely be in Scandinavia. Besides, there are a lot of stuff going on in February like Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras, and Chinese New Year. Not to mention, the crazy shenanigans at the Trump administration.

Nonetheless, the Winter Olympics do stand out in one way for a blogger like me. And that’s in the realm of figure skating. It’s a sport where people do some high acrobatics and dances on ice skates that would send any normal person attempt these stunts to the emergency room. Even so, male figure skating remains beneath the acceptable confines of traditional masculinity in the US where we have Blades of Glory as well as male skaters portrayed a little light in the skates. Still, it’s a popular spectator event with a subjective judging system based on artistry, presentation, and interpretation. Not to mention, there is a lot of drama in the Olympic competitions. Thanks, to the film, I, Tonya, many of us will now remember Tonya Harding’s husband assaulting Nancy Kerrigan’s leg with a bat. But one key feature are the sparkly outfits the skaters wear on the ice. Some may go for the classic dress or pantsuit. Some may contain sparkles. Some may depict characters from a story or pop culture. And some may represent their culture. Sometimes these costumes can make the skater shimmer and look graceful. But occasionally, you see plenty of skaters who look totally ridiculous. In this post, I show you some of the craziest skating fashions to grace the ice (though not exclusively from the Winter Olympics). For your reading pleasure, I give you an assortment of figure skating fashion fails. Enjoy.

  1. A skater can wow the judges with a black and white clown onesie.

Well, at least he’s not wearing any clown makeup to scare the kids. Still, kind of pathetic.

2. I didn’t know you can do a figure skating routine from Magic Mike.

Then again, he might be there for the fanservice. Yet, I can’t complain about his six pack.

3. Sometimes a flannel shirt and coveralls is all you need.

Sorry, but this outfit belongs out in the woods or a country barn dance. Not on ice. Still, at least his outfit didn’t cost much.

4. Unfortunately, her Katniss Everdeen costume didn’t land her on fire.

Yeah, that fire dress kind of falls flat. Even with rhinestones. Fire may burn. But ice surely chills.

5. Man, this guy really seems going for the gold.

I don’t think that gold outfit will win the judges’ favors. The Donald Trump haircut doesn’t help matters either. I’m sure he’s skating to theme from Goldfinger.

6. Some skaters wear too little. Others wear too much.

Not sure how she can skate in that outfit. Seems like she could trip on it.

7. When it comes to honoring a culture, at least insult your own.

These were Russian skaters who did a homage to the indigenous people of Australia. I’m sure Aboriginies want to cut them down with a boomerang now.

8. Nothing impresses the judges like spandex and puffed sleeves.

Hey, it was the 1980s. Puffed sleeves were all the rage at the time. Even on the skating rink.

9. Just because your robe is short and sparkly enough to skate in doesn’t mean you should.

Actually, her outfit is supposed to resemble a short kimono. Since she’s from Japan. However, Japanese styles don’t usually translate well on the skating rink for good reason.

10. Tonya Harding must make her chest sparkle.

Yes, that Tonya Harding. And yes, this costume is quite revealing as well as barely covers her boobs.

11. I guess this routine is Marc Antony and Jenifer Lopez.

Basically a celebrity couple that’s no longer together anymore. And in the douchiest imitation imaginable.

12. She certainly looks sensational for an Atlantic City blackjack dealer.

Yeah, a flashy vest and tight pants doesn’t impress me. Seems more suited for a casino.

13. Some men think they can bedazzle in buckskin.

Sorry, but that frontiersman get up doesn’t work on the ice rink. He should probably go back to playing cowboys and Indians.

14. Nothing hurts the eyes like black and yellow plaid.

How he got that in one piece, I’ll never know. But utterly tacky? Absolutely.

15. Here Katarina Witt dressed in her skating program as Gertrude McFuzz.

By the way, she caused a lot of controversy with this outfit. That in 1988 the International Skating Union instilled the “Katarina Rule” which required female skaters to wear pants and skirts. It was enforced until 2004.

16. Tara Lipinski skates to “American Woman.”

Wearing an outfit I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing in school. And yes, the pants are unusually tight.

17. Apparently, this guy just had to show his muscles.

Seems like this guy’s not wearing much. Like he’s skating to a rendition of Zoolander.

18. When in doubt, wear bright colors.

He seems more suited for hosting a kids’ show. And yes, he really stands out in a crowd.

19. Johnny Weir must wear that feather top.

Well, Weir is always known for his outlandish costumes. This is no exception.

20. Some pair skaters always go to great lengths to match.

However, I don’t think this style holds up. Reminds me of something you’d see from the 1980s.

21. Her dress is watching me, isn’t it?

Had she worn a black dress to match her partner, she wouldn’t be on this post. Alas, she dressed in an outfit that resembles a spaced out cat.

22. A swan costume is a common ice skating motif.

However, she can always overdo it with feathers. And not just around her waist either.

23. Not sure if white skaters should go with an Afro-Brazilian routine.

Particularly since the guy has a plate on his chest. Still, this is kind of offensive. Couldn’t they just do samba routine in the traditional spandex?

24. Her red skating get up is draped with red beads.

I’m sure practicality wasn’t in mind with this costume. Hope she doesn’t slip and fall should a bead fell off. Then again, ice skates are quite sharp.

25. Apparently, she wanted to skate as her favorite Disney princess.

I’m guessing it’s Jasmine, judging from her outfit. Though her pants look slashed.

26. So is this supposed to be Xenia Warrior Princess meets He-Man?

Because it sure looks like it to me. Okay, he doesn’t exactly dress like He-Man, but the style looks similar.

27. I’m afraid she has a severe case of cello butt.

I think she’s supposed to skate to a Beethoven piece. But to so with a cello on her back is ridiculous.

28. Unfortunately, she couldn’t afford another skating outfit after her costume partially burned from an ironing mishap. So she cut out the burn spots.

Okay, maybe I made it out. But at least it explains the outfit better than whatever she can come up with.

29. Perhaps a zebra suit can show one’s wild side.

She even has stripes on her arms. And yes, she doesn’t look particularly flattering.

30. At times, you’d swear that pair skaters wear similar outfits.

However, the woman always has to wear shorts while the guy wears suspenders. Still, kind of remind me of restaurant workers for some reason.

31. Can’t afford a skating outfit? Make one with see through robe.

Well, at least it’s easy to put on. But it barely covers her butt.

32. Queen Elsa, meet your future husband.

For he seems to resemble an ice king to me. Just look at the sparkle spikes on his shoulders and wrists.

33. Every figure skater yearns to shine like a star.

However, this doesn’t mean a skater should have stars all over her outfit. Kind of tacky if you ask me.

34. If you’re a fan of Braveheart, then you’ll love him on ice.

Yes, he’s dressed like William Wallace. However, that doesn’t mean he should.

35. Unfortunately, he forgot to pack his skating costume and now is stuck with his underwear.

Well, at least he showed up. Still, I’d be embarrassed to skate in that if I were him.

36. Always spread your wings.

However, this doesn’t mean your costume should include them. Because that’s just cheesy.

37. When all else fails, a male can skate with a bare chest.

Apparently, the concept of “no shirt, no service” doesn’t apply in the men’s figure skating dress code. Still, heard those rinks can be quite cold.

38. Of course, some men can rock in a sweater vest.

I’m just kidding. Still, he kind of reminds me of one of the Jonas brothers. However, brown and orange doesn’t go together.

39. A man can stun in silver.

For some reason, he reminds me of some sleazy futuristic nightclub owner. Only thing missing are nubile alien dancers on each arm.

40. Speaking of Space age, these two really make the future seem closer than we think.

She is a showgirl at the planet Zendu. He’s a hotshot bowler at the Cosmic lanes. Met at some disco club on the moon.

41. A skating outfit is always better with flowers.

However, I’m not sure what to make about flowers on a green bikini bra and tutu. Seriously, why?

42. Someone’s skating outfit is totally ripped.
