First up, a fab Whitman's Chocolate ad from Easter 1951. (See another one but for 1943 here).
Yes for many years, Whitman's, Fanny Farmer and Brach's dominated the commercial Easter chocolate market.
It's followed by a fab circa pre-World War One Easter card. This one's a real beaut.
And finally a fab tutorial on how to make chenille Easter chicks from 32 Degrees North; these look infinitely doable using "bump" chenille--for more, click here.
From time to time we all come across a vintage putz house we believe is well past all redemption, let alone restoration and effort. And then there's this little charmer.
Now here's a project for some intrepid crafter---check out this "roof" here.
Recently the subject of dye-ing with Kool-aid came up---mainly because a friend's daughter spilled some cherry concoction on a yellow blouse---AND IT WAS NOT COMING OUT...
Yes, the color may have faded some but it was there to stay.
