ETSY Shopping Saturday... Happy Easter!

In That Moment.... I plopped myself and my Easter basket down on the Sunday School room floor. Stuck my feet out in front and took off the very uncomfortable white patent shoes (to this day I don't like patent shoes). I had to scratch my legs because of the also very uncomfortable tulle that fluffed my pastel dress. I've never liked dresses, but always had to wear one for Easter. Finally to the colorful plastic eggs! What goodies would I find inside. First the hot pink one, a quarter, that won't buy me anything. Then the pastel green, a jaw breaker, those things are gross. A purple one taped shut, I'm not wasting my time to try and peel the tape off. A blue one that held a lifesaver mint, which is not real candy. Where is my chocolate? Three eggs later, FINALLY. I unwrapped that miniature Mr. Goodbar and devoured the milk chocolate and peanuts. I was happy, but happy in uncomfortable shoes and dress.

EASTER EGG: I found these very pretty Easter egg cookies at sugar & flour. When I think of Easter I always think of colors in the pastel family. I also think of decorating Easter eggs as these cookies are beautifully done. Who would not love to find these in their basket on Easter morning? Hop on over to sugar & flour where they have an assortment of fun decorated cookies. They even have cookies on a stick!

EASTER BASKET: The basket is essential to carry all of your loot! This adorable basket is from The Frolicking Fairy. This basket is deep enough to carry lots of your eggs as you snatch them up. The fabric can also be monogrammed for your special little Easter bunny. Don't worry they have a blue basket for the boys. Take a look at what else The Frolicking Fairy has in their Etsy store.

EASTER DRESS: Now this is my kind of Easter dress. One without tulle! And one that just looks comfortable. This pillowcase dress is from 4 Crazy Ladies. These colors are perfect for Easter and I just love the print. For the past few years it has been cold on Easter. Problem solved with this little dress, just add a long sleeve solid shirt underneath. If you wanted to you could even get your little bunny's initials or name embroidered on this dress. There are several other dresses (and other items) over at 4 Crazy Ladies. They even make shorts for boys that match the pillowcase dresses, none in flowers of course!

Well Happy Easter to all of you! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
