A Post Easter Post :)

 Sandy hosted a great swap this year for Easter! In addition, she and I did a one on one swap. I feel honored that she asked me. And she sent me such great things! This wooden cut-out rabbit ornament is so sweet!

 Jordan Almonds, Glimmery Gumballs, Jewel Toned Flowers, and even a few Christmas Corsage pieces were included!

 But it didn't stop there! This German Egg is jumbo size!

 And I can't believe that Sandy was willing to part with a whole book of vintage Birthday Seals!

And just look at these little Easter Magnets!
I forgot to take a picture, but can you believe that there was also a $10 Target gift card included? On the backside, Sandy wrote that it was to buy something for my new house! It's still in my purse because I want to find just the right thing! A picture frame perhaps??
Sandy, you were beyond generous to me! I don't think I quite matched you on this one, but someday I will "get you back"!
Thank you so much my friend! :)

 OK, the other day at my local little thrift, I was shocked to discover these two vintage ornaments hanging in the Easter section!
They're about the size of a large shiny brite, and the globe is glass.

 That's real lametta tinsel wrapped around them! The price? Fifty cents each!

The bottoms are marked "Made in West Germany".
Has anyone seen them before? I wonder if they were intended as x-mas ornaments. This is the kind of item that kills me! lol Because I love them, but I bet they would be worth selling. Especially for a girl with very limited $$$!
But ooohhh how I love them! Ahh!
What do you guys think? :)

 I hope you all had a fabulous Easter!

Thank you for following, commenting, and being a great friend to me!
I want to let you know that I'm pretty sure I'm going to take the month of April off from blogging. The move is going great, but I'm very slow with things because of my sore ankles. I'm finding that I want to dive in and get things set up and arranged, but I can't stand up for very long, so it's quite difficult. I've also had to face the fact that
 "My Name Is Erica, and I'm Addicted to Vintage Junk"!
Ahhh! I have way too much stuff! So I have to have a garage sale within the next couple weeks. I bet I have at least 50 pieces of Pyrex that have to go!

I can't wait to come back though, and show you all how it turns out!
I think it's going to look cute!
See you in May my friends,
Erica :)


  1. You are worth spoiling. Sandy is such a sweetheart. Just a tad bit jealous, but those thrifted Easter ornaments are amazing. Never seen anything like them EVER. Best wishes with the move. I'm sorry you are suffering so.

  2. Very sweet of Sandy! LOVE the vintage ornaments!!
    I have been thinking about you and the move! Take your TIME!!!

  11. Hi Erica! Vintage Junk is the best!! Looks like you got some very sweet little treasures from her, how sweet!! :) Good luck with your garage sale, wish I lived closer, because I'd love to shop at yours!! :) xo Holly

  12. Oh Erica I am gonna miss you!! But understand!! LOVE all the precious goodies you got at that first sale of the year!! woo hoo!! Can't believe they had all of your style there!! Can't wait to see your new sweet home all fixed up!!Have fun!! and take care of yourself too!! XOXO Love Fran.

  13. Hi Erica,
    Sandy is a great swap partner and hostess! I love those vintage ornaments you found, too!! Have fun with your move and don't work too hard, we'll miss you, though,

  14. Hi! The German bunnies are a treasure. They are really big on Easter in Germany...there are almost as many cute wooden decorations for that holiday as at Christmas. Every home has some sort of Easter tree...mainly tree branches...hung with darling bunnies, nests, chicks and eggs. And they have wonderful marzipan candies in all sorts of shapes...fruits and vegetables, etc.

  15. I hope you have a great month and get everything in order! Take it easy though, it's not worth further injury.
    So you should do your sale around the 20th this month and then I could go! Junk Bonanza here we come!

  16. What a wonderful swap! I love blogging friends. I too have way too much junk and I'm thinking a yard sale will help me also. Take care and move slowly, I know how hard it is when the mind is willing but the body says STOP! See you in May!
    hugs, Linda

  17. Good luck on the garage sale-I wish I lived close. I know it will be good. Hope you get settled in. I love the Easter ornies-I've never seen any like them.

  18. Oh wow I was going to say I wish I could come to your garage sale. But then got to thinkin you'll keep all the stuff I would want to buy! so now I don't feel so bad now!

  19. I need to have a garage sale too! Moving is such a lot of work... Take it easy! Chris

  20. Sweet treasures from Sandy! Look forward to seeing your new place! enjoy! xo Heather

  21. Sandy is so generous and creative! I wish I could stop by and shop all that Pyrex!
    I was so fortunate to be able to bring all my loot with me on this move, but boy, was it ever a lot of work. Your Easter goodies are awesome!

  22. Sweet stuff! I adore the bunnies in baubles...howd u do that?
