The Queen of Fairyland
The Queen of Fairyland6
Not only is The Carnival Soiree approaching in 10 days, But in April, another fabulous event is coming: Easter, a day of celebration, Religious Love, Praise and The Arrival of the Easter Bunny, who never comes to your house without an Easter Basket or Chocolate Bunny.

Last week I was at Walmart picking up some items, when I came upon the Easter section, it was like a journey into time. This year everything is 50's style, Russell Stover put out an Easter Pastel Line, the chocolate bunnies, and matching goodies can be in creamy pastel colors of Baby Blue, Pink, Hot Pink, Orange, Lilac, Pale Green, and Yellow. Their are peeps in the same colors, edible grass from Germany, candied eggs, cutesy stuffed animals, and sweet baskets, its just Easter Wonderland, and best part, its reasonable and at Walmart.

When I was young their used to be a few stores open by me, Newbury's and Woolworth's which my mom used to frequent and buy my holiday goodies at, when I saw this aisle I remember those times. Not sure if the Walmart by you will have these goodies, but the ones by me do.

As a tribute to our vintage holiday past, I created this piece in what I call The Cupcake Chic Color Scheme and Style, a vintage vignette made in a large Pink Egg with removable cover, normally used to hold candies or surprises in, I call this piece: The Queen of Fairyland, read her story:

Meet Candie Meadows, The Queen of Fairyland! Here is Queen Candie, welcoming Spring and Easter in her blooming egg garden, just outside her palace in Cottonwood.

Today she will hold the annual Easter Bunny Ceremony where she bestows Mr. Bunny with extra magic, which last all season, this will enable him to surprise children everywhere (Adults too), with Easter Candies and Baskets.

Plus today will mark the official day of candy making, Cottonwood Confectionaires and Percy Pookerman's Candy factories will be extra busy, making sure there is enough confections to go around.
