Vintage Easter

As you may know, I love vintage postcards and graphics. Here are a few for you to enjoy and laugh at and wonder what on earth they were thinking when they made them.

You could print the ones you like to use as place cards at your Easter table. Although, I must say, I had a difficult time finding any cards that exuded the true blue meaning of the Resurrection of Christ. With the exception of the lamb, which I suppose, could kind of be pertinent. Didn’t anyone celebrate with Christian symbols back in the day?

Which one is your favorite? I can’t decide between the blimp, the blue flower balloon or the pink egg. Which one is the weirdest? For me it’s the dancing rabbits dressed as eggs. Creepy!

Enjoy!  (Click to enlarge and/or print.)

    What’s the deal with the ladyegg card? That’s just weird. Is she supposed to be pregnant or something? And the creepy dancing rabbits look like an old version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And the fairy with the crowned elephant? No idea!

      I know, right? I have to wonder what the culture was like in those days. Hm. And we call them “the good ol’ days.” I think it just shows people are people no matter what time or place. We come up with some strange stuff! Good thing we’re not God!
