Vintage Cream Puff




I went to my favorite antique shop today and this is what I found. This darling vintage lace ruffled hat with a pink velvet bow, it reminds me of a cream puff. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know how I love these cutie vintage hats. No, I don't wear hats, I incorporate them in my decor.



This is the top of the hat, love the vintage lace. When I saw this hat, I was almost afraid to look at the price, thought it would be way outta my price range. So don't hate me, but it was only $10.00, whoohoo!! Well, sitting right next to it was this


Vintage aqua hat with the most delicate millinery flowers!! Total sweetness.



Both hats are in mint condition, doesn't look like they have ever been worn. The price for the aqua hat?, yep, $10.00.




I have a foyer table and on each end of the table, I have a vintage wrought chair. On one of the chairs, I have a vintage hat that sits on top.




The other chair doesn't have one. I thought the cream puff hat would look fabulous on the other chair but sadly, the hat is isn't big enough.





So, I've been carrying my new vintage hat around the house trying to find something to put it on. I'll let you know where the hat finally ends up.


You may remember this picture, another vintage hat sits on top of a cast iron cherub candle holder. So much fun decorating with hats.


This is the close of the hat, also in mint condition.



My shabby dog even wears a vintage hat.



Do you remember the post I did about my sister Mary, the quilter? I even did a post about the quilt she made me. Well, she finally has a blog and did her first post last night. I'm so proud of my big sister!! If you get a chance, please stop by Mary's blog and welcome her to the blog world. Mary's blog is called paper fabric scissors.

My friend Kristen made the template for her blog and you find Kristen here

and here.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the fall weather, Janice

Hi Janice! My mom wore hats all the time, especially the kind that the little veils that came over eyes. I wore them, too, as a young teen when I went to church...I loved them! My favorite of yours is the knit hat on your beautiful shabby dog...I love that dog! I have been thinking about you...hope all is well with you and the boys...is baseball over?
