I do not think I have shown you the newest member of the family, Lena. I found her for $15 at a garage sale a few weeks ago. One of her three legs falls out, but that is ok. I am keeping her. I was so thrilled to find her. I knew I would find plenty of use for her.
Here Lena is wearing a recent find, a beautiful blue, gingham apron.
Or this full blue and red striped full apron.
Lena also knows that Christmas is coming, so she modeled a Christmas apron. Love that this apron has jingle bells stitched to the pockets and bells. Too bad Lena doesn’t have a head, so she could also model more hats that I found. Actually it is too bad she can’t cook.
I totally fell for this hat. It is a peach bridesmaid hat. I can just see the 60’s wedding with the peach bridesmaid dresses. Just so you know, I got married in 1990 and peach was an in color then, too. So my bridesmaids did wear peach dresses as well. But hats weren’t in, so no hats. I am guessing peach is coming back again soon.
Now this hat, I am just not sure about. The wrap hat reminds me of a towel on my head after I wash my hair, yet, there is something about it. I think it would be great for a Halloween costume of a 1950’s housewife.
This puff hat reminds me of a wedding cake. Maybe it was a bridesmaid hat too. What do you think?
This one I do not think was for a wedding. It looks more like a Sunday morning church hat.
Since I am thinking church, I am thinking this was an Easter hat.
Since this is black, it would not have been worn for Easter. I love the little faux fur wrapped around the hat. I am wearing more and more hats, but I still have not been able to get myself to wear a hat with a net in front of the face. I can’t remember why women did that. Was it just fashion or were they trying to hide their face? Glad our current hats don’t have netting.
Since Christmas is coming, that means it will be getting cold. This faux fur hat would sure keep me warm. I have listed this hat, and the rest above, but I am thinking of pulling this one. It really does get cold here. I like how this one looks on me. So if you see me in this hat, say hello.
If you have a store, do you list things. Then do you change your mind and keep it for yourself?
