Easter: 15 Ridiculously Adorable, Awesome & Odd Easter Cards of Yore

I’ve been feeling pretty uninspired this Easter season. I haven’t procured all the goodies for my daughter’s basket, hell, I don’t even have a basket (hers was accidently destroyed during some rather raucous post sugar high hi-jinx last year). On top of that, I have yet to plan out Easter dinner (ham or lamb?), haven’t gotten the plastic eggs for our annual Easter egg hunt and do not even joke about an Easter bonnet. We don’t have that either.

I blame my lack of Easter effort on working too much, travel, and just being one of those ridiculously busy moms. I am at a point now that I am having pangs of guilt for not doing my motherly duty and providing the Easter magic my daughter loves so much.  To get myself – and perhaps you – in the mood here are 15 of the cutest old vintage Easter images out there. It’s like an injection of Easter inspiration (that I so totally need right now).

Check them out here:

    When I look at this image I can't help but imagine them performing "One" from a Chorus Line. Yes, that may haunt me for a while.

    Chick Power
    Some may use horses or dogs for transport, but this odd hat wearing wee ones uses chick power. Love the illustration style of this one.

    If you were served by him, you know you'd tip big.

  • Chicks and Rabbit Dance Party 4 of 15
    Chicks and Rabbit Dance Party
    The size issue aside (rabbits are far bigger than chicks), one wonders what would happen if their species mated. An interesting pairing for sure.

    And apparently in Easter card fantasy land, bunnies don't just paint, they play music too.

  • Uh-Oh 7 of 15
    I know this is supposed to be just cute, but I can't help thinking these kittens are going to pounce on that little chick and make a meal out of him.

    They make a cute couple, no?

  • Chick Blimp 9 of 15
    Chick Blimp
    I would have loved to have been in the pitch meeting for this card. "Okay, so we have a card with a dozen chicks climbing into a blimp with strands of flowers, perfect for Easter, right?" I get the chicks, but what is up with the blimp?

    A fashionista's dream. Plants that grow accessories, in this case it's hats.

    I would pay really good money to have this family show up at our doorstep on Easter morning.

    I much prefer this bunny girl to one of Hugh Hefner's.

  • When a Bunny Goes a Courtin’ 13 of 15
    When a Bunny Goes a Courtin'
    I wondered earlier about what a chick/bunny hybrid would look like. But if these two mated? I so can't even imagine.

    So That's Where Babies Come From
    If babies were born from eggs. Yeah, freaky.

    And not just babies, how about babes?
