10fac4eb512ba008610fe0c09e458ba3

In the United States, since the 4th of July is considered the nation’s birthday, many Americans go all out with red, white, and blue decorations to show their patriotic pride. Some decorate their home with American flags. Some use other star-spangled decorations that you see in the photo above. While many Americans may purchase their Americana décor in a store, some might prefer to make their own. Unlike the treats, you can use these craft decorations year after year. As you can see on Pinterest and Etsy, you need not go far to find it. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of 4th of July craft projects.

Salute the Red, White, and Blue United States of America with These Patriotic 4th of July Treats (Fifth Edition)

4th-of-July-party-table

Now that summer is around the corner and Father’s Day is over, it’s on to prepare for the 4th of July, or Independence Day. Normally, this would inspire patriotism, fireworks, and anything red, white, and blue. However, during the dark times of the Trump administration, it’s very difficult for me to get pumped with patriotic pride except when it comes to, “Impeach the Motherfucker.” Anyway, during this time, you’ll find plenty of stores across the country filled with red, white, and blue patriotic decorations, flags, and paper plates. In addition, the 4th of July is a time of fireworks and barbecues. And nothing inspires patriotic devotion to the flag like some star-spangled treats, which is where I come in. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasury of star-spangled 4th of July treats.

Fun with Easter Bonnets (Fifth Edition)

A woman wearing a party hat with two flo

Now it’s on to Easter bonnets. After all, it wouldn’t be Easter if we didn’t have these outrageous spring hats. Anyway, what began as an item women would show off during the Easter Sunday church services has become a must have for men, women, and kids. Now you have plenty of crazy hats on the Easter parade, particularly in New York City. Of all the years I’ve written these Easter bonnet posts, I’ve seen plenty of these hats depicting not only Easter motifs and signs of spring, but also other things like Angry Birds, dinosaurs, and Star Wars. Sometimes these were kids’ craft projects from school. Sometimes these are adult creations meant to show off their fashion or artistic skills. Nonetheless, for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of crazy Easter bonnets. Enjoy.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

2017-03-11-12.28.04

20161021-092731-20160311__p_eag-l-peeps-03091jpg

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. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of springy Easter craft projects. Enjoy.

  1. A bunny should always be on an Easter table.
