Easter Memo Board

We have a memo board in our entryway and usually I like to put snapshots on it. At Christmas time I put the Christmas photos we receive on it, and then during the rest of the year I rotate photos. The memo board I've had there has palm tree fabric on it, and that didn't seem very Spring like, so I grabbed another memo board from my daughters' room, and decided to put my vintage Easter items on it.
I found this little vintage pattern, and although I bought it for the image on the front, it came complete and uncut. Isn't it the cutest little thing?

My sweet pink bunny buttons. The only problem is, I think they're so cute, I don't want to use them on anything :-) Every time I see them, I think of Anne at Bunny Tales and all of her wonderful quilts.
The real reason for Easter. The cross where Jesus paid the price for our sins.

I hope that your Easter Celebration is wonderful!

That is such a fun idea! Yes, I do remember the little Easter coats like that. I am getting excited for this weekend and Easter Sunday...he's the reason for sure! Come say hi :D

Christine said...

Hi Marcia! I love all your vintage Easter cards and they look really sweet on display.
Praise God for sending the Savior to pay for my salvation!
May the LORD richly bless you and your family this Easter!

Great idea. I especially liked the pattern envelope. I used to make dresses for my girls when they were little and it brought back good memories for me.

Melanie said...

That is so pretty.
I love the pattern picture. My mom used to make us matching Easter dresses when I was little. :)

So cute Marcia~
I think my Mom made me an outfit out of that pattern when I was little! I love those bunny buttons too!
Happy Easter,

Kelli said...

I LOVE this! :) Cute idea! That pattern is wonderful. Reminds me of the little Easter dress, coat and hat sets I wore as a child. :)

Good idea to have one contained area where you can change out images and collections depending on the holiday or mood you are trying to create. Love that old pattern. My mom used to make clothes for me when I was little. She sewed a lot at that time, but not anymore. I never learned to sew. Boo! Hope you are having a great week. :) Tammy

I love that idea of having a Easter Memo Board! I am going to remember this for next year!

I love old vintage patterns! I collect them, and I sometimes sew it, if the pattern is all there, for my daughter.

Oh, Marcia- I've missed your wonderful posts so much!!
I LOVE the little board with all your vintage Easter goodies... especially the bunny buttons.
I remember my mother making my Easter dresses when I was small... oh how I hated to stand still while she pinned the hem! *giggle*
I'm going back and reading some of your older posts to get "caught up" with you now, so I hope you and your family have a blessed Easter Sunday... isn't it the most precious day?
