Blue Monday, Vintage Hats


Happy Blue Monday, hosted by Sally @ smilingsally.

These beautiful hats remind me of my Grandmother. I grew up Catholic and we always had to have our head covered in church. My Grandmother had a wonderful collection. I wish I had them now.

I love all your vintage blue hats! I also collect vintage hats. I display them in my cabin up in the mountains in one of the rooms. I wish the style was still here and we could wear these kind of hats!

I remember when ladies wore hats and gloves. Then, just at Easter. Now, seldom, unless you're the Queen of England! Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.

Great hats.

I look terrible in hats and for that reason only am glad that we don't wear them all of the time now...as was the fashion in years past... however, I love the look!!!

While there is much to enjoy about today's more casual style, I hate that so many never "dress up" any longer. These hats are really fun to view.

You created such a pretty collage of these blue hats. I have a strange head for hats(I think I look odd in them) but I appreciate the beauty of a lovely hat.
