I am rerunning this post from last year because it was one of my favorite Easter projects.
The display brings back a lot of wonderful memories of how we celebrated Easter when I was growing up.
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 an orange dress, my sister Theresa is in the middle wearing a lavender 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 46 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 photo 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.
I'm linking with Donna @ Funky Junk Interiors for the Saturday Nite Special link party.
The theme this week is Easter.
Have a wonderful Easter weekend.
