I've really been enjoying the nice weather here! I went swimming with my nephew, went mushroom picking, and went into "town" to go to some cute antique and thrift shops!
Here's what I scored:
1940's stiff velvet hat....It makes your head look like an apple :-)
Nice beaded detailing
Vintage sailor hat...this will be so good for photoshoots!
1950's grey felted cocktail hat
I love vintage hats. Each hat has so much personality! I recently took out a library book on old millinery techniques, and it's sooo much work to make a nice, well-crafted hat. I can really appreciate the craftsmenship that went into making them.
Hmmm, so I'll be here until Sunday, and then I'm going to NYC for a few days, and then to Long Island for a friend's wedding. Luckily there's a serger and sewing machine here...so I'll be able to get some work done, too! Anyway, I hope everyone has a great rest of the month. I can't believe September is almost here! :-(
