Lil' Vintage StoryBook and Easter Baket Collection!

It's Friday and so it's time for another Lil' Vintage Story Books Link Party.

Today's book (The Funny Bunny Factory) is one of my favorites because of its delightful illustrations.

Copyright 1950 by Grosset & Dunlap, written by Adam Green. Illustrated by Leonard Weisgard. In this colorful tale, hundreds of bunnies take up residence in an abandoned factory.

Inside the factory, they find sugar eggs,


penny candy


toys


and one little bunny finds carrots!

This week's collection features my vintage Easter baskets.

One of my favorite baskets includes reproduction German eggs.


Another holds honeycomb eggs and flocked chicks.

Another basket is filled with glass eggs
decorated with vintage millinery flowers


Another holds a plastic egg decorated
with sweet bunnies.

Don't forgot to visit Corey Moortgat's blog for more great vintage books and illustrations. She's currently featuring her daughter's vintage-inspired bedroom. It's simply ADORABLE!! Filled to the brim with all kinds of vintage girly items.

Happy Friday!
Happy Easter!

Have a lovely weekend!

That book is adorable. How fun to be able to roam around a factory and find all the Easter treats. They probably like the carrots the best though.

Oh My! I remembering owing that book when I was little. I loved the illustrations in that little book. Unfortunately I had a younger sister who thought books were for eating and most of mine were chewed up and thrown away. LOL! Your Easter baskets are sooo cute.

They just don't make Easter baskets like they used to! Your collection is very sweet, and I especially like those honeycomb eggs. One more thing that I need to add to my must-have list!

How sweet. Something tells me Luna finds that grass just as interesting. Reagan tries to dump ours. Something about cellophane. I love your honeycomb and every little touch of spring. This is a book I remember from childhood. Thanks for sharing...smiles..>Renee

What a cool collection! I'm of course picturing a cat curled up in each one, but you really have an eye for the most adorable vintage things!

OH, those are the sweetest bunny illustrations! I adore children's book illustrations... maybe that is one reason why I still have a whole bookshelf of books for little people. Actually I'm keeping those so my children can read to the kids they will have some day. (not any time soon.)
