I have been trying to find a vignette to put these guys in for a couple days now. Tried them all sorts of places and finally just plopped them on top of my suitcase next to my McCoy vase full of pussy willows.
Sometimes you have to just stop thinking so hard about something.
The tags say they are vintage Easter candy containers. And I really want to believe that.
I really do.
But something about them says “a little too roughed up to be really vintage” to me. Like they are trying a little too hard.
Whatever their age, these two guys make me smile and dream of tulips and daffodils and running naked through fields of jelly beans.
Here’s a question for you. Assuming these are vintage, did these paper mache candy containers come filled with candy when purchased or were they just empty containers that you bought to add your own candy to?
You can say that your Grandmother told you about them, if you don’t want to admit to being old enough to remember them in person. I do that all the time.
