But we can put a fire in the fireplace,
so come sit with me.

What a great collection! I actually have that card with the chick standing on the egg myself! I made some greeting cards from the image. I love how you have them displayed. So nice to hear from you! (I guess you're a minor celebrity now!) ;-)

A great collection of postcards. Love how you photographed them nestled with your other Easter treasures. I haven't put my Easter postcards on display yet but I did do a post featuring St. Patrick's Day cards. Stop over to take a look!

Hi Ann,
just popping in to say that I will be featuring you at Share Your Cup. I adore your sweet cottage!

Deb said...

Hi Ann- I'm popping over from Claudia's blog. What a delightful post this is. I just love all your Easter treasures. So many cute cards and bunnies. I noticed the bunny that looks like it may be made of tin. Love it. I can tell you love to decorate for Easter. Me, too. Being a feline fancier I must say "Hi" to Boots. Deb (Ontario, Canada)

Dewena said...

McCoy pottery just seems made for Easter. Where else can you get those colors but in McCoy. My few are scattered around and I think I need to bring them together better, especially for Easter. Your postcards are just right to go with them.

Chenille Cottage said...

Hello Ann,
Just look at all your gorgeous McCoy pottery. My Mom had several pieces when I was growing up. I love the soft pastels. I couldn't help but notice the little red wheel barrel, too. Very sweet!
Have a nice weekend.

Lisa Lynn said...

Adorable! I love the vintage cards :)
Congrats on your feature on A Favorite Thing!

I would love to have you share this on The Creative HomeAcre Hop today!
