Love this so much, I've featured it on my blog today! :-)


How funny! I like the peach, white, and purple colors. Do they change the colors everytime they repaint?

Amy @ The Q Family

How neat! What a creative way to do that!


Very neat! I wonder if I would be the only mom who would have kids that would try to scale the sides and get inside?


Cool site and great history!

Traci-I knew you'd be all about this BIG basket! :lol:

Jen-They do change the color scheme from time to time. I'm not sure if they re-paint it every single year, but I saw several different color schemes in the Flickr group I linked to with Easter Basket family pix over the years.

Amy-The man who created the basket originally thought it couldn't be done, but he came up with something that seems to look quite nice.

Jessica-I'm thinking most kids would try to climb into the basket it they could :D

Wanderluster-I do love how taking pictures with this sculpture became (and remains) a holiday tradition among families in the area.

Sarah V.

Adorable! I love interesting photo-ops with my daughter...this would definitely be a fun one.

Dominique King

Sarah-I'd love to see it with all of the eggs in it myself! Some of the family photos I saw on the Flickr stream were really cute :)
