Spring Hats

hats 022

Well, we have another snowstorm.  How many posts can be written about new snow?
The thrill is gone!

So, I’ll write about spring hats.  I have some.  I’m the type who likes to collect things,
old things, and I have quite a few doll hats.  I’ll share some with you since you have
asked . . .

I’ll start with my favorite–the take to that desert island type.  It’s an old red straw
with a little leather clutch purse that came with it.  It probably dates to
the 1950s. How cute is that?

I keep the hats in two old Bonwit Teller hatboxes.  Remember Bonwit Teller?
I love the box with the violet designs.  Next photo shows that box with a small
bunch of hats.  Look for the little pale green organdy cloche . . .

and the dear little straw checked poke bonnet from the 40s and 50s . . .along
with a red taffeta plaid beret for some tall hard plastic gal . . .

And a fancy antique one, all velvet and ribbons:

OK, maybe that’s not a spring hat, but I knew you’d want to see it.  Will finish
with another favorite—-are those real crow feathers?????

I think hats are back in fashion.  Let’s go out and buy a new spring hat.
