Just sharing some pictures of Easter Past. Notice in the first few pictures that I am a TWO Easter Egg Basket kinda girl!
I've always loved hunting Easter Eggs and dying or decorating Easter Eggs.
How I wish these old slides were in focus; nevertheless, these old images are still precious to me.
I think this one was taken at my Uncle Luther and Aunt Ila Dixon's house in Mansfield, Louisiana.
This four section basket belonged to my great-grandmother who died in 1938. I'll post separately about this unique old basket and see what you might know about it.
Growing up, I'd beg Daddy or Unc to hide the eggs again somewhere in the den or around the house so that I could find them all over again...and again. It was always curious to me why they counted the eggs so often! *wink* (No one wanted a rotting egg somewhere in the house that had been overlooked!)
My favorite memory was of Wigglenose, a real live rabbit that Daddy kept cornered in a little patch of clover at our house in Jackson until Mama got me outside to discover it! Well Wigglenose and I bonded and slept together the whole 90 mile trip back to the farm that Good Friday!
They let me keep Wigglenose for the whole weekend, and then as far as I knew, he went to live with his family in the woods. Years later, I learned that Wigglenose was given to a young man who was raising rabbits for 4-H, and he and Wigglenose won some ribbons! Yeah, Wigglenose!
Yes, I know there is a discrepancy in the date of the Wigglenose pictures. The dates and ages are all over the place. The slides were scanned and edited at three different itmes, and I have way to be accurate until I find the original slides again and see what is marked on the slides. I am also no good at looking at a child and guessing an age. Not that it really matters in this case.
If Gordon has any Easter Egg Hunting pictures, he has not shown them to me yet. Otherwise, I would have included them in this post.
We had a cute video we planned to shoot with the Westies this afternoon. I have all four of them trimmed and washed. They just need a quick brush out, but those plans are on hold now. I think I will save the idea for next year when the daffodils are a bit fresher. We had a hard rain last night that battered the daffodils around.
So I hope your Easter has been filled with happy memories this year and that you take time to remember why we really celebrate Easter in the first place.
