HATS IN THE ATTIC


Don't mind the washing machine in the background (yep....now you all notice it, maybe I should not have said anything).

Here are the hats we found in the attic.  

The owner of these hats must have had a small head.

Here is a funny looking one
Here is the inside of the funny looking one.
This one is all feathers and there is a netting inside.

The one at the top is so funny looking, my husband thought it was a wig....HUH????

I can see Lucille Ball wearing the one on the right.

These are satin.

It was so fun finding these hats, now to find a vintage store that would love to have them.  I personally do not need all of these things.  I am even thinking of selling the quilt squares I have found...yes, I found more.  So if any of you might be interested...just give me a shout out and I will send over pictures.  I will never finish them.

Next...to leave you with a photo of my sewing room today.  Husband spent yesterday building a temporary chicken coop so my room was on hold....but today I think we are going to put the last mudd on it and we will begin the painting tomorrow.  Did I hear someone Whoop????

  1. Wow, what a treasure trove of hats. I suspect you'll find a store that will carry that type of item.

I'm also trying to imagine what the hats in the second picture would look like on someone's head - LOL I love old hats, but they usually look dumb one me or are deteriorating . missysaprons@gmail.com

  16. Love the hats. Some of them look very 1950's, the type of hats that Doris Day might have worn in her films.
