my Easter bonnet~


I wore this little hat when I was 5 years old. My younger sister and I each had one....Ilove this still, with its little daisy sewn on the grograin ribbon. The vintage bag I picked up at a yard sale last weekend for 5o cents!! I bought 2 of them, they are made of toile and chenille...love them!!

How amazing to have kept you hat all this time, great thrifting.

Oh, Mindy! I love this room! That is wonderful that you could take what you have and rework it! I'm trying to do the same thing in my house - I've got so much stuff that I know can be reworked. Thanks for the inspiration!

And by the way, it does look like a peaceful retreat :)!

Hi Mindy,
Can you believe I have almost the identical hat on a hatstand in my bedroom. My sister and I each had one--hers with a blue ribbon and mine with a yellow one only not as long as yours and minus the daisies. Just discovered your blog and will visit again.
