Easter @ Comycgyrl Collectibles

Antique Easter Card

Antique Easter Card Rabbits Eggs Flowers Small Announcement Card Antique

The Easter Bunny or Easter Hare (sometimes Spring Bunny in the U.S.) is a character depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter Eggs, who sometimes is depicted with clothes. In legend, the creature brings baskets filled with colored eggs, candy and sometimes also toys to the homes of children on the night before Easter. The Easter Bunny will either put the baskets in a designated place or hide them somewhere in the house or garden for the children to find when they wake up in the morning. via wikipedia

I enjoy the fact that with Easter comes the renewal of Spring and the knowledge that Winter is behind us. I hope everyone has a blessed Easter season.

Oh how lovely is that card! I love vintage cards like that. And especially like the rabbits. This reminds me of Brer Rabbit and Peter Cottontail.

Thanks for sharing a little history. Cute and educational at the same time! Love it!
