Vintage Easter Parade
Have you ever been to a vintage Easter parade? Do you remember being a little girl wearing your Easter bonnet with the satin ribbons tied under your chin?
My nieces dressed up at my cousin's Denise's shop/studio. Denise has a vast collection of vintage prom and bridemaids dresses, matching shoes and flower bonnet hats.
Denise gave them free rein to play dress up.
With their handmade Easter baskets in hand they dressed up.
Each selected the color and style that they wanted from the many options.
All I requested was that they wore flowers in their hair.
Easter bonnets, lace, ruffles, pink cheeks, baby lips and tender sweetness.
Vintage Easter bonnets, baby pink.
Little girls happy day of dressing up.
Green tulle, leaves and crystals as water drops.
Young blossoms ready to bloom.
Which color would you wear: Pink, Yellow, Blue, Rose, Green....
Marie likes baby pink.
Chantilly lace with a pink roses.
Little girls' laughter.
Long curly locks, after school, wearing a rose crown bonnet.
Would blue be your color? Molly's made her Easter basket with a chartreuse bird.
I was in my glory, soaking up my nieces giggly happy Easter parade day.

Kate is the baby niece, and she worn a pink satin bolero and a bonnet from the 1930s.
Kate is six, yet she exclaimed over and over again, "Beautiful!
Everything is so beautiful!"
