A vintage Easter

I have been saving a few little vintage finds to show you for Easter. They were all found at different times in local thrift shops for a couple of dollars. Along with a child’s cup, bunny salt shaker and the sweetest little cup and saucer beaded jug cover, you can see a little edible nest. I made these nests with the lovely group of women with intellectual disabilities that I teach. The nests are not my original idea, I can’t remember where I first saw them. They are just like the chocolate spiders I’m sure you’ve seen before. Simply melt white chocolate and mix with a packet of dried fried noodles. Spoon into a patty pan and make an indentation in the middle with your finger. When hardened, pop in a couple of mini eggs or a little chicken and then enjoy. I wish for you all, a happy and safe Easter holiday, wherever you are.

  1. What a great idea for a little home-baked easter treat! What gorgeous vintage trinkets too. I love them and I love your idea to photograph them on sheet music. I hope that you have a happy and safe easter too. X

  2. I bet your group enjoyed making these Jen . I’ve never heard of using noodles like that !
    Lovely thrifty finds … I bet that sweet little mug had a chocolate egg sitting inside it at one time πŸ™‚
    Enjoy your weekend !

    • They loved making them Poppy. They made two each, one to eat in class and one wrapped up in cellophane with a little chick sitting on the eggs, to take home. The little mug has been well used, obviously someone’s favourite at one time. I hope you have a lovely weekend too!

  3. That cover is lovely! I like how beads were added to make sure it didn’t slip off. The cup and the salt shaker! Oh, how I love old things . . . the only thing better is old things whose stories you know . . . Hope you are having a lovely Easter, Jen. And not too cold. We finally began to warm up (+8C today), but of course we can’t count on it yet . . . ~ Linne

    • It’s starting to cool down here but we are still warmer than you. I think we had a low of 9C and a top of around 20C, so still very pleasant. Not much sunshine though. There’s definitely a crisper feeling in the air.
