MAKE MINE PINK: PINK FRIDAY, "EASTER MEMORIES"!!



Please join Grandma G's for shopping with a twist on Friday, March 27, 2009 as we present Easter Memories.

On Easter mornings, when we were children, we would awaken to discover spring had magically arrived overnight… and delivered some delightful surprises. The world was new again and filled with treasures just waiting for us to discover them. Tall chocolate bunnies hidden in springtime flower beds. Eggs, delicately painted like rainbows, waiting in the grass. Plush rabbits in ruffled dresses and straw hats, sitting in white baskets, eager to become our very special friends. We'd hunt together with our friends and family, oohing and aahing over each person's discovery… but secretly knowing that the treasures we found were made just for us.

Now that we're older, the newness of spring and the thrill of the annual Easter hunt can be rediscovered every time we seek out a treasure in a vintage shop or exclusive boutique. Perhaps we're not searching for chocolate wrapped in sparkly foil or rainbow colored treats. We might not even be sure what we're seeking, but we recognize these treasures the instant we see them.

A vintage hankie embroidered so delicately you can't help but wonder about the woman behind its design; a crystal bracelet reflecting a color that's "just so" when the sunlight shines on it in "just that way"; the ideal display for a certain corner that's been looking slightly forlorn - not missing just anything, but the perfect thing.

The moment we discover them, our hearts feel a little thrill and, just for that moment, the world is new again and we feel reborn. As if someone hid this treasure in a secret corner just for us to find, and our hearts recognize it before we even know what we've discovered.


At Make Mine Pink, you may not find the foil wrapped bunnies or the colorful eggs, but you will always discover a thrilling hunt for the perfect treasure that stirs up feelings of spring.

Hi Georgia!
Popped in to say hi. You made me start thinking of all the fun times we had as kids on Easter morning. And then planning all of the fun times with my own kids. Now that they are grown, things have calmed down a little, but they are boys in their early 20's, ummarried and still - they LOVE the Easter egg hunt. (Course the quarters that used to be in those hidden plastic eggs have turned into $1 bills but oh well!)
Thanks for the memories!
Have a wonderful week! Karen

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your blog is lovely. I have wonderful Easter memories too. I have pictures of my sister and I in white gloves and hats and big poofy skirts made poofy by the scratchy petticoats we wore. So much fun! I'll be back. Mimi
