Sister Lynn and I have been discovering lots of treasures
in her home as we clean out the corners and nooks and crannies...wrapping and packing everything in sight.
But I did not expect to find boxes of vintage hats
with lovely millinery flowers!
Now, Lynn loves pretty things and appreciates vintage treasures...especially if they were passed down within our family. She is not, however, the
hoarder collector that I am.
These pretty hats were discovered by a friend of hers many years ago up in the attic of the home she was living in.
The friend gave them all to Lynn, a teacher...
for the "dress up" corner in her classroom.
...those blue velvet leaves are soooo pretty!
Do you remember Marshall Field's?
After all....we are in Chicago here.
Lynn opened the pretty white box
with the Marshall Field's logo...
...and separated the tissue paper with their gold seal.
...and there it was!
In all its purple heavenlyness....
This, Lynn said, belonged to Sadie Arlene Auman....
my brother in law's grandmother.
Oh me...oh my!
Lynn has offered her collection of beautiful vintage hats to me...
...all but this spectacular bonnet...as it was Sadie Arlene's.
I surely don't blame her!
...and then we unearthed this!
Lynn's wedding gown from 1975!
Isn't it lovely?!
She was such a beautiful bride!
Such pretty lace!
This is a surprise post...
...as I did not expect to be back at Paneras so soon!
Until next time!
