Easter Greetings

Easter Greetings
Send I thee,
Glad and
happy may
it be.

Sounds like something Yoda from Star Wars would say!

A friend of mine was telling me about a book she reads to kindergarten classes.
She volunteers and has been volunteering at this school for years 
and has children come up to her in other grades
 and tell her they remember the story she read to them at Easter.

"It wasn't always the Easter Bunny who dyed eggs and wove baskets for the children--it was a round old couple who lived in a snug little house. Their pet white rabbit, however, always watched their preparations closely. One Easter morning, the old couple sleeps in, so the rabbit takes over. In time, the children discover they have the Easter Bunny to thank for their gifts."

The postcard is from the Easter Rabbit Postcard Book 
published by Darling & Company.
The artist is unknown but they did know the date - 1916.

Postcard Friendship Friday is hosted each week by the lovely Beth.



I almost forgot all about Earth Day.
Shame on me!

The Nature Conservancy suggests that to celebrate we should:
Eat Smart
Eat Local
Eat Sustainably
Eat Green
Eat Outside With Your Friends!

Wishing you WELL and a JOY filled  Earth Day.

Too cold to et outside, except for the bunnies, they don't mind with their suggly fur coats. If the sun stay out maybe I can eat outside with them! 32 this morning doesn't feel like Eater one little bit. Love the post card though. xox Corrine

Love the card, and yes, it does sound like something that Yoda would say. lol

Happy Earth Day, though I think earth day should be every day (not just one day of out of the year). :-)

The bunny is adorable. I love the old cards.

Sheila said...

He doesn't look hugely happy, does he? Maybe he thinks the ruffle is just too girly.
