The Pastel World of Easter Village Houses (Third Edition)

3a3a6563c984a894f55e0c2ff6227ded

Now we’re on to the Easter village houses. A holdover from the similar Christmas tradition, you’ll find many of them sporting pastel and spring colors, cute animals, colored eggs, and flowers. Nonetheless, since promoting for other holidays is profitable, you’ll find many companies encourage people to create their own springtime town within the confines of their homes. Some of these might be the porcelain houses that light up from the inside. But there’s a putz set as well. These houses are usually made out of cardboard but are painted and covered with glitter. They may light up from the inside and possibly have pipe cleaner trees. Yet, they can be stunning just the same. Nonetheless, for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of Easter village houses. Enjoy.

28. A big hat creates a huge impression.

BBS-042-BS_F

This one has plenty of feathers. Though she often has to hold the brim.

29. Nobody could resist a feathered chick.

c37019721773d69655ffffa21eac6605

Has felt beak and feet along with googly eyes. So cute.

30. You can’t get over this sheepy head.

cda5e0c6b567d6beb21c8b8cde88d813

Reminds me of those sheep from the Wallace and Gromit cartoons. So cute.

31. You’ll keep warm in this crocheted bunny hat.

-dress-funny-1330483647

Though it’s kind of funny that it’s worn by a grown man. Even includes a nose and whiskers.

32. 2 fancy hats are better than one.

drag_races_2010

Each has a pastel garland and dangling Easter eggs. Not to mention, both have bunnies, flowers, and eggs on top.

33. Even a broken egg will do for an Easter bonnet.

DSC_0413-e1490354832859

The purple Easter egg is made from papier-mâché. While it sits atop a straw hat.

34. This bike helmet is covered in chicks.

DSC_0728

The chicks are all made out of pom poms. As a green ribbon hands in back.

35. Bright tulle can always look sensational.

DSC_1515

This Easter bonnet contains a necklace and pink flowers. But the tulle colors are so vibrant.

36. Any little girl would love this Frozen Easter bonnet.

e2af52064c065197ba18336310b311a9

This one even has a castle. Also decked with purple and pink tulips.

37. A pink straw hat should include rabbit ears.

e12b5bca33e5f68009845897fafaf577

The ears sure look fuzzy. Has pom pom chicks and bunnies at the brim and top.

38. Paper bowls always make nifty Easter bonnets.

easter projects 029

They even have paper roses. So adorable.

39. Perhaps you might wear an Easter bonnet with a floral bunny.

easter2

The bunny even has eggs dangling from its head. Perfect for any Easter parade.

40. This Easter features a skillet of eggs and bacon.

EasterBacon&EggHat040812IdiosyncraticFashionistas3371

This woman’s Easter bonnet is a pan of eggs and bacon. Some people call this breakfast.

41. Nothing makes an Easter parade better than a big old pie.

Easter-Bonnet-Competition-2017-Waitress-photo-by-Monica-Simoes-0754

This is for an Easter bonnet competition. This woman does Waitress.

42. A straw bonnet can always use a few feathers.

Easterbonnetcontest-005

The pink flowers are along the brim. Also includes eggs and pom pom chicks.

43. These Easter bonnets are all color coded for your convenience.

easter-bonnet-parade-600

Each of these have flowers on top. They also wear matching feather boas for good measure.

44. Put these people together and they’re an amusement park.

easter-bonnet-parade-nyc-carnival

Includes a hot air balloon, carousel, and ferris wheel. And yes, it’s so whimsical.

45. Daisies will always have to go in the back.

eb53016c1a699f1166fc76152fdfa6f4

Well, this hat is kind of low key. But the flowers usually go on top.

46. Easter bonnets don’t always have to be for mommies.

easter-hat-on-daddy

Well, this is a typical Easter bonnet. But this guy’s daughter thinks it’s cute and hilarious.

47. Sometimes a simple Easter bonnet will do.

easter-parade-nyc-412018-nyc-easter-bonnet-robert-ullmann

Contains eggs and flowers. Still, I love the feathers in the back.

48. A Darth Vader hat can always use some bunny ears.

easy-easter-bonnet-template-star-wars-hat-for-parade-resume-free

The ears have to be red and black. But any little boy would love this Easter top hat.

49. Didn’t know you can wear an Easter basket for an Easter parade.

elizabethtaylor

It even has chicks inside it. As Elizabeth Taylor wears it quite well.

50. A hot air balloon will make an Easter bonnet soar.

f78c2ec79edbf24be32639da8b84a0ab

Wonder if balloon is made out of paper mache or a Chinese lantern. Yet, you’ll find plenty of chicks in the basket.

51. Here the farm animals gather for the big Easter show.

fcc062e36cbfbc67f94a96eeac86a28d

The animals are toys and are put around in a circle. Whilt the stands are made out of paper.

52. Apparently, the egg has cracked onto the boy’s pan.

frypan-hat

This is another frying pan hat. Yet, this time has a broken eggshell.

53. You’ll find plenty of roses on this geometric hat.

geometric

The roses seem to connect everything. And yet, the cubes seem invisible.

54. An Easter bonnet should be a real showstopper.

04-20-14_easter_drag_races_burkharts_SP-54

Well, these hats certainly impress. Like the one with the purple flower and the big Easter basket.

55. Wonder what’s inside that large cage.

imagesJMH2A137

Okay, it’s an Easter bonnet with a bird inside. But somehow it has a nest filled with dyed eggs.

56. Is that supposed to be a mushroom cloud?

imagesO2G5F059

Then again, it might just be a cloud. While I’m wondering if that dark figure is Darth Vader. Still, love the flowers.

57. Perhaps you might want to take the minimalistic approach.

imagesQ9KXH063

This one is black with sticks everywhere. Kind of like an umbrella without its cover. Not exactly Easter parade material but more of a goth approach.

58. You’d think this guy has a basket of rabbits on his head.

imagesU4C185EC

Well, it kind of is. Also includes strings of Easter eggs.

59. This must be the Chinatown delegation.

imagesUMEJJTOO

Here we have people in large egg hats over vases of flowers. The eggs are obviously paper mache.

60. The bigger the flower baskets the better.

IMG_8738

These baskets are on their heads as if they’re gardens. Still, they’re sensational.

61. Any man can wear an Easter bonnet with flowers.

Local-News-Easter-Bonnet

This one has lots of pink flowers and Easter eggs. And yet, it’s meant for a man secure in his masculinity. Seriously, this is what non-toxic masculinity looks like.

62. You’d certainly call these women quite hair-raising.

maxresdefault

These big coiffes are made from pink strips of ribbon. And yes, they include flowers.

63. Every boy wants a Minecraft Easter bonnet.

minecraft-rabbit-e1487725410484

Seems quite easy to make, too. Just need blocks of foam.

64. A hen always sits on her nest.

Nest

But that doesn’t stop the little chickies from getting out. By the way, the chicken is made from paper.

65. An Easter bonnet can always use some antlers.

nyc-easter-2015-easter-bonnet-parade

Each antler is touched with flowers. Perfect for hipsters.

66. He’s got quite distinguished eggs.

nyc-easter-parade-art

I think they’re supposed to be Shakespearean characters. So the guy must be a theater man.

67. The Easter bonnet must match the outfit.

ojPEQVS

Well, he’s just wearing a cowboy hat covered in duct tape. Though I think the bunny is way creepier.

68. A tall hat should always have peeps.

Screen-Shot-2015-04-01-at-9.48.34-am

His hat is covered with peep bunnies. But it stands like a skyscraper.

69. An Easter bonnet must have a finishing touch.

0

This one is for some kind of show or venue. Yet, it comes with a tulle veil in the back.

70. The early bird always catches the worm.

turkey-feather-dress-07c

And the bird is taxidermied and put on her hat. Kind of sick if you ask me.

71. A swan hat is always glorious.

Ugly-Duckling-bonnet

The swan has green butterfly wings behind it. Like the flowers, too.

72. Perhaps you need a bunny in your Easter bonnet.

woman-with-easter-bonnet-underwood-archives

This bunny sits on top in a glen of flowers. Too bad this photo is in black and white.

73. A large hat always makes a big statement.

2b806db46375035d8b5dc1292097156a

This one has bunnies and chicks on the brim. Like the flowers and eggs on top.

74. Got to have a butterfly in your bonnet.

7e894ac46e5f87e2f5d37ec3b8bdd54a

Actually it has a couple. Though I really like the flowers.

75. Nothing says spring like ducks in a pond.

hqdefaultH4RINT91

This one has one big duck on top and a bunch of little ducks on the brim. So cute.

76. Don’t forget to add some Easter eggs.

IMG_3937

This one has Easter eggs on sticks. Also includes smaller eggs, a bunny, and pom pom chicks.

77. A large purple hat will always stun.

SCN040515-Freddies-Easter-Bonnet-Brunch-WM0165

And this guy revels in it. Has feathers along the brim. Love this.

78. Easter bonnets can never have enough flowers.

IMG_2051

One has a tall vase with pink and purple flowers. The other has a large rose and lots of foliage.

79. Seems like this guy’s a real flower man.

16473364323_0a805d7b0b_b

He even has a green beard to match. While the guy next to him is a literal parrothead.

80. Sometimes a couple of peonies is all you need.

160327200851-07-5th-ave-easter-parade-super-169

It may not be much. But it works just the same.

 

Easter Greetings from the Days of Yesteryear (Fifth Edition)

4ef22a15fd435cb0f72c94218310f317--colored-eggs-vintage-cards.jpg

Now that I have the peep dioramas out of the way, it’s time for old Easter cards. Though you might see plenty of them with beautiful illustrations like this ornate basket with Easter eggs, you’re not going to see any of that on this post. Instead, you’ll see old Easter cards lost to time for one reason or another. Mostly because their imagery seems to defy all explanation. But some of them are kind of inappropriate or just plain weird. While some of them contain traditions that are very unfamiliar to many of us. Let’s just say you won’t see any of these images on a Hallmark greeting card anytime soon. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of crazy old timey Easter greeting cards. Enjoy.

  1. Looks like this witch took a wrong turn.
0Yeen

There’s a tradition in Scandinavia of Easter witches. I know it’s kind of messed up. Still, you’ll be seeing more of these on this post.

2. Perhaps chicks like to reminisce about old times.

3bbb16035e9326c1a6fcbc863236c8bf

Though a couple chicks would rather do something else. As you can see from their blasé faces.

3. “Fly, fly, my pretties!”

8d83480e1ee01a150bd695d114d33aa9--easter-art-witches

Yes, that’s another Easter witch on her broomstick. And no, I have no idea why people in Scandinavia thought her as significant.

4. “You don’t look like a chicken.”

5536046ac56b3660e658cb180a95a581

Since a baby hatched from an egg and the chick seems to marvel at it. Despite it not being how human reproduction works.

5. Once dyed, Easter eggs must be hung to dry.

article-2606221-1D23CAD400000578-750_964x614

Okay, I don’t think you should hold up eggs like that. Also, these are chicks holding them. So what kind of eggs do they use?

6. “Now let’s light ‘er up and fly to the moon.”

easterwitch_firework

I don’t see this going too well. Seriously, experimenting with fireworks never goes well. Even among magic users. Just ask the Weasley Twins.

7. Apparently, multiple chickens can fit inside one egg.

bb1656f3bbb763da4d10c80d511e25b4

Well, it’s a giant egg cracked open. But it’s held with a giant ribbon. But that doesn’t keep a little chickie from escaping.

8. This bunny doesn’t seem to have a happy Easter.

bd15d292d1a350e8d2fa145ab2613cb8

Since these little kids want to dress it up and make it their pet. Think of it along the lines of “I’ll hug em,’ and squeeze em,’ and keep em’ for ever and ever.” But Harry belonged in the wild open spaces.

9. There’s nothing for a dad rooster like spending a day with his chicks.

BUSCH-Postcards-early-1900s-124-Easter-undated129

Just keep in mind that they all have different mothers and that most of the boys won’t survive to adulthood. Still, I can’t see how this father would keep track of them.

10. Try fitting those eggs in a suitcase.

cc05a98df244b8e0f9d051b6ed5b7b03

Let’s say keeping eggs in a suitcase is a very bad idea. Since they’ll probably break as you carry them. And those chicks will probably suffocate.

11. Bet you’ve never danced with a rabbit before.

EASTER big bunnies

The bunny’s like, “Come and frolic with me in the forest. We’ll have lots of fun.” While this boy is like, “Uh, no thanks, my mom wants me to iron my dog.” And he wants to make a run for it.

12. Perhaps you’d like to ride in an eggshell cart.

EASTER nancy boys

Yes, it’s pulled by bunnies which I don’t think is efficient. And I don’t think the bunnies like pulling the cart either.

13. Chicks, hop up on the Easter blimp.

Easter Vintage chicks derrigible

Of course, not all of them can fit on it. Then there are the flowers dangling from the basket which I don’t think seems safe in any respect.

14. Didn’t know the Easter Bunny smoked a pipe.

eastercard -- SMOKING BUNNY

Or that he could find eggs big enough to put flowers in. Still, don’t use tobacco, kids, it’ll give you lung cancer and kill you.

15. “C’mon, don’t leave me! We’re already flying.

easterwitch_acrobatics_lasse

Seems like she abducted this old guy. While she has her legs curled on her broom. And you can see her underwear.

16. “Oh, shit, now they’re flying planes.”

easterwitch_airplane

Well, these witches don’t seem too happy about the arrival of aviation. As they look upon that plane with disdain.

17. If you fly too low, you’ll get stuck on someone’s TV antenna.

easterwitch_antenna

Apparently, this witch got her broom caught in a TV antenna. And she’s really not happy about it. Hope the guy inside has good reception.

18. Looks like a witch had her broom modified for speed.

easterwitch_aviator

This witch’s broom includes a lever, wheel, and a propeller. While the other witches look to her with envy.

19. With a broken broom, she’s not going out tonight.

easterwitch_brokenbroom_ebay

Indeed, a broken broom can really ruin your night. Still, what’s with the kettles? Cause I don’t get it.

20. In the barnyard, it’s the chickens who fly with the eggs.

easterwitch_chickens

And the rooster doesn’t seem too happy. But the hens on their flying brooms don’t care a bit.

21. “Mind if I drop down your chimney?”

easterwitch_chimney_lasse

Too bad since she’s already flown down. Wonder why the old man in bed hasn’t experienced a heart attack with her sudden presence.

22. Should a witch fall into the sea, she’ll have to be fished out.

easterwitch_curtnystrom

Yes, the fisherman’s rescuing a witch who fell into the sea. Despite the fact she has magical powers.

23. “Embrace me, Moon.”

easterwitch_cute

Yes, apparently in Sweden, witches often like spending their nights with the guy in the moon. Yeah, I don’t know how that’s possible.

24. Flying on 2 brooms is better than one.

easterwitch_doublebroom_large

She’s like riding the sky like she’s on water skis. While the moon snidely eyes her with an unpleasant smile.

25. Apparently, warlocks can be pervs.

easterwitch_edwardian

Here the guy on his broom eyes at the witch lady with binoculars. The witch is not happy. Kind of plays out like a scene in Harry Potter.

26. Easter greetings from a distinguished chick.

fec8928d1f6d813e19cc5dd52501c8d7

Seemed like they started smoking so young. Still, the chick seems like he’ll whack you with his riding crook if he could.

27. “So if that’s the Eggman, who is the Walrus?”

33756832ccb03e450f824579835ea46d

The bunnies are about as stumped as you or me. Guess someone must’ve been on drugs while designing this card.

28. Even bunnies know the meaning of forbidden love.

1a408e4fcda3364d913adda2878096f8

Meanwhile, the lamb is resenting having to act as a stool for its rabbit friend. Guess some things aren’t as good as they’re cracked up to be.

29. This chick walks a thin tightrope.

7c06d43503bba79ee3f39b76b582f0d4

I don’t expect this ending well. Even worse that it has to wear a rather humiliating costume in the process.

30. Don’t let the space dog grab the broom.

easterwitch_spaceage_pinup_lasse

Think this was made during the Space Race, given how the Russians sent dogs in space. Still, the moon seems like he’s enjoying himself.

31. Easter is a time to get out of one’s shell.

final-resting-place-624x414

Yeah, I don’t get how they have people in eggs. Much less including flowers as well.

32. Looks like the chickens are out in their Easter Sunday best.

53659ba59e1ef2164b050cf734933326

I don’t get putting chickens in clothes like this. But they all seem like a rather well-dressed family.

33. Apparently, the witches are eager to fly like the rest of us.

easterwitch_jetliner

They may be excited now. But wait until they realize that their cats will need to be in crates and put in the baggage area.

34. Once in awhile, a good looking witch flies through the night sky.

easterwitch_legs

You can see the men looking up at her. Bunch of skeevy perverts.

35. While some witches wear baggy dresses, some wear very few clothes at all.

easterwitch_pinup

Guess she’s meant for a pinup. Though even characters on Harry Potter wore more while on their brooms than this. Also, Easter usually doesn’t have appropriate weather for swimsuits, especially in Sweden.

36. This chick welcomes you to his humble abode.

il_570xN_725592566_ikms

This chick wears a fez and smokes a pipe. I know it’s crazy that you’d think this card’s designer was on drugs.

37. This Easter witch makes a smash on TV.

easterwitch_tv_lasse

Yes, she crashed through the TV. While the bald guys are wondering what the hell just happened.

38. Always test the ladder before you climb it.

42bdb5b89cc951d9e70f76c589fd1b6e

Looks like the ladder couldn’t support the Easter Bunny’s weight. Then again, he might’ve just entered the chicken coop to steal some eggs.

39. “Is that a bunny hatching from that egg?”

e1b10eaa73f1a5eaa595f31fc3a13659

Bunnies don’t hatch from eggs. Nonetheless, I can’t blame the boy from being understandably freaked out by the whole thing.

40. Egg-stealing gnome wishes you a joyous Easter.

2107c92227c534636a50e7a517249c87

He better be fast cause that rooster looks like he could peck the guy to death. Wouldn’t want that.

41. Perhaps a chick would want a ride on a carousel.

3739d8546a31654fdc2276c189fdf5df

The eggshells are swings. While one chick waits in line. Still, it’s kind of weird if you look at it.

42. Witches, feel free to take a rest stop in the clouds.

easterwitch_platform

Well, witches can use a break, too. Still, what the hell’s with that attendant?

43. Easter greetings from the flower ladies.

66cb9cd7a24b82d1700093177838ab49

Yet, these flowers have women’s faces. Wonder if anyone who designed this was on drugs. Probably. Seriously, why?

44. Easter eggs always drop from a ringing bell.

6389eafc707ca13fac9375b9a94b206b

This is a tradition in France, by the way. Yeah, it makes no sense to me either.

45. On a cold Easter, the Easter Bunny transports Easter eggs in the snow.

f43e07f9ffa6aa5e02b42125adea842f

Normally we don’t associate snow with Easter since it’s a spring holiday. But snow in April isn’t unheard of. Guess this is from Canada.

46. “Who’s in the mood for some accordion music?”

322d7936fefdf0dc1480e57c7d4183cb

Seems like nobody’s interested among the chicks. Even the bunny knows his talent isn’t appreciated.

47. This Easter, bunnies will take to the skies.

b7925ce6fc45ff2466fcf9aa6a366da6

Yes, bunnies take to the skies. I know it’s really crazy. One even drops eggs from his basket.

48. “Care for some milk for the cat?”

easterwitch_jennynystromhags

You’d almost think these women are at a coven. Nonetheless, their faces look so sinister for 2 old ladies.

49. Egg ladies wish you a happy Easter.

4583ff7c8bf1a3cd2573e3e83e68316e

Indeed, this is really crazy. Even the cat is sort of shaped like an egg. Seriously, why?

50. On Easter, one has to look their best.

192a0e5e119f58c4ad5569178a8f7710

Yet, despite being in a tub, that one chick still wears shorts. Not sure why that is (aside from censorship but even that’s ridiculous).

The Wonderful World of Peep Shows (No, Not That Kind) (Sixth Edition)

Now we get into my favorite kind of Easter post: peep dioramas. Featuring the iconic sugar coated marshmallow candies unfit for human consumption, people have taken upon themselves to put them in certain scenes that have nothing to do with Easter. And in recent years, they’ve become incredibly popular, especially in the Midwest United States. I mean newspapers across the US have contest for these. Anyway, though peep dioramas started out as a craft project for children, many adults take peep dioramas into a unique art form. In fact, many of the peep dioramas I’ve seen aren’t at all suitable for children. Nonetheless, in this post, I give you another assortment of adorable and amusing peep dioramas you can’t help but love.

  1. Let’s get ready to rodeo.
2a4f26e61feba9997a67a48267474919--easter-peeps-peeps-diorama

Yes, the cows and horses are made out of peeps. And yes, some of the bunnies are wearing cowboy hats.

2. As far as cooking shows go, the competition in Top Peep is especially brutal.

2bb2469af7301cbcc79f4777142725f4

Someone must’ve had an incident in the kitchen. Still, I’m not very familiar with this show.

3. On this week’s episode of Hoarders…

4d10a77828b7a64f1835477cbfb77776

That show was popular for awhile. Wonder if it’s still on. Then again, I surely hope not.

4. Behold, the indomitable Cleopeeptra.

5Peck72

Her hair is made from bunnies. While her jewels are made of chicks.

5. “It was 20 years ago today…”

5abfe43499290.image

Well, this is a peep version of the album. Each bunny has a famous face. As the Beatles are in felt clothes.

6. Mount Peepmore is a major destination in South Dakeepta.

5cc979e2fd7b75ffd05821261b1b2724

Seems like the bunny presidents are under construction. Still, I’m not sure which is which here.

7. Poor Bunnard Stark.

6a00d83451cb0369e201630343a7c8970d

This is from Game of Thrones. And yes, the Stark patriarch and main character from the first season is dead.

8. Bet you didn’t see The Scream in marshmallows.

6fc310b0-ec97-11e5-9822-cd95dd15204b-1020x1360

You can see it mostly consists of bunny and chick peeps. Still, it’s an almost spot-on rendition.

9. You’ll find plenty of bunnies in the Leaning Tower of Peepsa.

8c8636274b1dc6e81a3abdef1d46f8d4--peep-diorama-ideas-kiss-concert

This one is a paper tower with bunnies inside. Though some bunnies seem like they’re sinking.

10. Tune in to the next Peeprah.

09f7835d3dbc403a469cba9cab8eb01f

It’s a rendition of Oprah. Though I think she had a larger audience than that.

11. With this Peepriodic Table, you will know the chemistry.

43bb58a9502d740033fbdba37065a4a1

The peeps are color coded for each group. Bunnies are metals. Chicks are non metals.

12. Seattle, Washington welcomes the Women’s March.

"Peeps - Womens March - 2017" by Julianne Prekaski

And it seems like all of them are in pussy hats. By the way, this is from 2017.

13. Alas, the Purple Reign must come to an end.

58e721c044e5d-princepeep_03final

This is a peep tribute to Prince who’s on a motorcycle. He died in 2016.

14. Looks like Warren Peepy messed up with Best Picture.

"Best Peepture Is ..." by Jill Schaefer

This happened in 2017 when Warren Beatty mistakenly named La La Land as Best Picture instead of Moonlight. Yeah, it was pretty crazy.

15. “Fra-geel-lay. Must be Italian.”

58efae419c0a9.image

This is a rendition of A Christmas story. Features some of the movie’s most memorable moments.

16. Samuel Peepys chronicles the Great Fire of London.

284samuelpeepys

Samuel Pepys was a famous diarist during the mid 17th century. As a civil servant, he hobnobbed with many famous figures in his day.

17. Perhaps you’ll be classically inclined for Amadpeepus.

345Amadeus

This from the 1980s Mozart biopic Amadeus. Like the bunny at the top. So creative.

18. The peepestra is ready, maestro.

550chicago-symphony

This is a peep rendition of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. You can even see some of the instruments.

19. This Peepception is very messed up.

563inception

Well, it’s a movie about going into people’s dreams. Still, I didn’t understand the film when I watched it.

20. In this dentist’s office, Cecil the Lion takes his revenge.

2016peeps_cecil_listing

Cecil the Lion was a lion killed by a dentist in Africa, as a trophy. Still, this is pretty hilarious.

21. In Rio de Janiero, the peeps congregate for the Olympics.

"Peeps Olympic Opening Ceremony," by Jill Osiecki

This is a peep rendition of the 2016 Olympics in Rio. And yes, this is the Opening Ceremony.

22. Apparently, incest and live burials can really bring down the house for peeps.

"The Fall of the House of Usher," by Kelli Hanson

This is a rendition of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Fall of the House of Usher.” It’s best known for featuring a guy who’s a bit too attached to his sister and buries her alive.

23. There’s no way you can take down Moby Peep.

Spring Into These Easter Craft Projects (Fourth Edition)

easter-table-decor-34-554x554

Now that I’m done with the treats, let’s move on to the crafts. Anyway, given that Easter occurs in the spring, it’s only fitting that people decorate their homes with flowers, eggs, bunnies, chicks, and so much that’s associated with spring. Though some might go with a religious bent with crosses. In any case, in the days following up to Easter, you’re bound to find stores selling Easter decorations for all your desires. Yet, as always with most holidays, some resort to making their own. Nonetheless, unlike the treats that will eventually get eaten, you can stash the crafted decorations for next year once the Easter season is over.

The Second Line World of Mardi Gras Parasols

m-8908

Before people embark on their 6-week sacrifice of Lent come Ash Wednesday, some areas hold a big party where they can indulge in their own desires. The French and those in New Orleans may call it Mardi Gras. Others like the Venetians call it Carnival. Anyway, while those in Venice often don masks and dress in lavish costumes for masquerade balls, those in New Orleans usually tend to hold costumed parades with jazz music and floats. While the costumes in Venice reflect that of a bygone era, the costumes in New Orleans are incredibly festive that they may include some flamboyant parasols among them. Some can contain flashy sequins. Some might have feathers. While some may consist of fringe. So for your reading pleasure, I give you an assortment of parasols for Mardi Gras. Enjoy.
