isn't this cute?! i ordered this from sew gracious.
it'll be elijah's easter basket, year after coming year.
i'm looking forward to
filling it the easter bunny coming!
it was always a treat to hunt and find our easter baskets.
our baskets weren't baskets at all though. they were old fruit crates(or something) and they were big.
we four kiddos each had our own box, painted yellow by our mama. she painted little easter-y scenes
on each side of the crates, and even our names on one end. these easter boxes are special
to me and my brothers and sister.
some years there may only be a bit of candy, hidden underneath your standard plastic stringy eatser grass. many years though, there was some kind of jackpot item, like a movie, set of books,
nail polish, hair accessories...
a few years we passed easter and got our boxes as "spring boxes".
likely to help focus on easter's real deal, and partly because the candy is on sale after easter:)
my mama is a darling, thrifty soul!
looking back, our boxes were rarely filled
with anything "special".
because my mama picked out
little fun goodies to surprise us with:
they just were special.
last year i made a little basket for elijah,
just to get by until i made or found a better one.
i have found one,
and i can't wait to make it a part of his easter traditions!
do you celebrate with easter baskets?
