Saturday Snapshots - Easter Treats (or Easter Threats?)

With Easter coming up, it seemed like a good time to post a few related photos. The first two were taken in Salzburg, Austria (if I'm remembering correctly) during a vacation several years ago. We couldn't believe the array of eggs filling this shop's windows. Looks like the Easter bunny worked overtime here.




And here's a blast from the past. I'm sure my parents thought we'd enjoy a visit with an Easter bunny, but those giant mutant critters are scary! We look kind of uncertain, don't we? (I'm the blonde--front and center.)

I've yet to see an Easter bunny costume that isn't terrifying!

Here's my Saturday Snapshot.

Makes me want to go and find some old family photos of Easter from the past, too.

The egg display from Austria is amazing! Totally creepy bunny! It looks like a child molester. I'd cringe away from that thing, too. I'm glad my parents never dragged me to see Santa or the bunny. On the other hand, you look really cute, Sandy. With your little scarf, you remind me of Little Red Riding Hood.

Fun photos. Those are some beautiful eggs. Love your reaction to the Easter Bunny.

Golly, the Austrian eggs are works of art! And I think you were wise to be leery of a bunny that big! Was he named 'Harvey' ? Wink wink!

Amanda Ironmonger said...

The Austrian eggs are incredible! I cannot imagine the time and effort that went into those. They show it too - they are stunning!
Thanks for stopping by our blog earlier. Returning the love! :) :)

The Easter eggs look amazing! I'm sure it takes a long time to paint all of these.

Love the vintage pictures...even if the bunny is a bit creepy. I just saw a post on Facebook with scary bunnies from the past...maybe the adults were trying to toughen the kids up. :-)

I've been away from Saturday Snapshot for a while. I'd love for you to stop by my post.

Wow! Not only is that a lot of eggs, but they look incredibly gorgeous.

I've never been to see Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny. Sounds like I didn't miss much except a scary experience. :-)
