hat collection

Hello blog, sorry for the lack of updates! I'm currently at my parents log home in Pennsylvania. I came down here to make sure my dad's surgery went ok. Luckily, everything went smoothly. The doctor did give my dad a stern talking to, and told him that he needs to start going for regular check ups. Ahhh, he's so stubborn! Haha.

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 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! :-(


  1. Awww you found so many great hats! And I'm with you on not believing it's already September! While I'm more than ready for cooler weather, I can't get over how fast this Summer flew by!
    Have fun on the rest of your vacation!
