Children and Easter Eggs ~ Free Vintage Image

by Julie J on March 5, 2015

This vintage Easter postcard includes two adorable children, a boy and a girl, having fun with Easter eggs. The boy is climbing a large pink Easter egg that is decorated with a band of flowers that is finished with blue ribbons tied into bows at each end. The girl is standing behind the boy. She is holding a basket of colorful Easter eggs in one arm while her other arm is raised, with a white egg in her hand. Judging by the eggs in the foreground, including one with a broken shell, I think the girl is throwing eggs at the boy. A chicken and three cute chicks are also on the grass in the foreground. The message on the card is: Easter Greeting.vintage easter postcard, easter clip art, old fashioned easter card, fantasy easter graphics, children eggs chicken printable Click on image to enlarge.
