Happy Hoppy Easter

Today I want to send out a very Happy Easter greeting to all my readers. I wish that you all enjoy the company of friends and family this weekend and that you enjoy a small or large indulgence of chocolate or your favorite treat!

Thank you to my beautiful model Miss Mandy Mae who can be found on FB for professional Pinup modeling!

The months leading up to Easter were celebrated on the pages of magazines all over... here are some fun adverts from the 1950's: You'd have planned just what to wear, what cards to buy, what to cook for dinner, what to bake and even what treats to offer to the little ones.

One of my very favorite treats at Easter is a handmade Chocolate Easter Egg with a all too sweet creamy center. If you are not up to making one yourself Laura Secord has amazing ones as does our local church handmade by local perishners. I LOVE them but was unable to get any this year... but I am sure that they sold out as they always do! You can order ahead of time to the Eastminster Church should you like to try some next year!

If however you are so inclined to try to make them yourself... there are some outstanding recipes online. Try these off Allrecipes.com

In the fifties a majority of the population was Catholic and definately Christian so Easter was a very big celebration as it still is today for many families. It was a full day of fun. The day often began with an easter egg hunt...

and sometimes if you were really someone's special bunny you might recieve a special egg from grandpa...
