Vintage Hats

I feel fortunate to have so many of my grandmother's hats. Most of the hats were
handmade by her! I especially remember when I was a little girl, she would 
always wear one to church. 
I wasn't quite sure how I wanted to display them .... I'm thinking I kind of 
like this way. Since I'm still in the process of redecorating our bedroom, I am constantly changing things around. I have many vintage items that belonged to my grandmother which I am using, besides yard sale finds. Our bedroom furniture actually belonged to my great-great grandparents! 

The vintage white lamp with the roses, I found at a yard sale for $2.00! I purchased the lamp shade at Ross, but then added the fringe. 
The pink depression glass cake stand was my grandmother's, as well. I really like using it to display vintage perfume bottles. 
What do you think?
A vintage hat that I just adore!  

I still need to sew the curtains (or window treatments), sew some pillows and also have a few other things to complete.... so, to be continued! But, it is all so much fun and I'm excited about the way it is all turning out!

 Here are some other photos of the bedroom from a previous post.

Hello Janet: Your Grandmother's hats displayed like that are adorable. They are so pretty. I can't believe she made them! LOVE the pink depression glass cake stand. Great way to use it too! It's all so pretty.

These are beautiful Janet! And to know that many were made by your grandmother makes them even more special. They look very pretty displayed on your wall over your beautiful antique mirror and dresser. I love the hat stand too.
P.S. I'm having a CSN giveaway at my blog, in case you want to enter. I still want to get together for lunch sometime soon.

I love the way you have arranged your grandmother's treasures with you own! Your idea to use the cake plate to arrange the perfume bottles is fabulous! Love your vintage collection.

Very, very sweet! Just love them - wish we wore hats like they did from the 30's to the 50's! So stylish!
Hope you have a blessed day,
