Joan @ Anything Goes Here is hosting a Vintage Easter Blog Hop. Do you have any vintage Easter pieces that you would like to share? Link back to Joan's blog and join in on the fun.
This was my family in 1965. Quite the crew!
My Mom made the dresses that my sisters and I are wearing and hand embroidered the flowers on the front. Since black and white pictures were the norm for this time period you can't see that each dress was a different color. I am on the left (with my Toni perm) in a coral color dress, my sister Theresa is in the middle wearing a lavendar dress and my younger sister Peggy has on a mint green color dress.
I'm mentioning the color of the dresses because the vintage Easter item I want to share today is the rosary I received that Easter to match my dress.
This rosary was a special gift from one of my mother's good friends. She had this rosary made for me and one for each of my sisters to match the color of our dresses. I've had this rosary for 45 years and it is a very loved possession.
This year I decided to display the picture and rosary as part of my Easter decorations.
I have a tall, flat vase that I used as the foundation of my display.
I framed a copy of our 1965 family Easter picture in a vintage frame and placed it in the vase on top of a bed of orange paper shreds. I made a small "Easter 1965" tag and placed it on the frame. I added a ribbon and vintage belt buckle to the bottom of the vase and then draped my rosary over the front of the vase.
A simple Easter display with a lot of wonderful memories.

Have a wonderful Sunday.
