" Hats Off To Valentine's Day "

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY..................
The day is all about love.....I love the beautiful card my Hubby got me! He's under the weather, in the bed and I'm trying to be real quite so he can rest.....
Valentine's Day to me is more about hats than Easter is, I guess because I love Victorian Valentine's Cards where the women always have on a beautiful hat!


Those women knew how to dress and the hats were fabulous! I went through a hat phase in the early 1980s. My BFF and I loved wearing our hats!


When I watched the series House of Elliott last year, I wanted those hats! I wanted to wear those hats!

For over a week I had been watching this collection of Vintage Hats on EBay. The bidding ended last night. I WON these 9 hats and let me tell you the bidding got fierce!! These are my Valentines present from the Hubby!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!! I intend to wear them too!


These are a few more hats I'd like to own! That Angelina is a doll in hers!




So I guess I should say " hats on to Valentine's Day ".................
HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY EVERYONE !!!!!!

I love hats too. Only on other people's heads. For some reason my head doesn't take too kindly to hats. But I love looking at them.

What fun hats! Love that black one with the pink band.

Like Kat, I love them too--on other people's heads. Most are too small for me and my hair is shot for the day if I do manage one. You have the perfect hair style for hats, I think! You go, Girl!

I hope you'll take more pictures of the coming collection.

Hope Hubby feels better. I LOVE that Valentine!

Hats need to make a come back. They are almost a lost clothing item along with white gloves.

Jen Chandler said...

I LOVE the collection you won! Congratulations :)

I agree, hats should make a come back. I love them! I would LOVE to wear a fancy hat for no other reason than just because. Wouldn't it be fun to wear one to the grocery store?

Happy Monday,
Jen

Congrats on 'winning the hats' on ebay! I've always loved hats, I too wish we wore them more today.

Ya'll have a richly blessed day!!!

I love hats, but I look pretty goofy when I wear one. So glad you are one who can pull it off. They are beautiful.

Mother wore hats every Sunday for a very long time--not huge brimmed ones, but much like you bought on eBay.

I recently bought some small ones at Target, primarily to cover my thinning hair.

I love caps more than hats.

Has the snow all disappeared?

Callie said...

There was something so fun about trying on and finding the perfect hat.

Carol............. said...

Remember the Jackie Kennedy hats? She wore them so gracefully.

Brenda said...

What beautiful hats! Your pictures brought back pleasant memories of church on Sunday mornings when every woman wore hats & gloves...

Glynis said...

Catching up: Wow those hats! Not a hat person, but love to see them. I love your winter pics and your bedroom looks amazing.

Gaston Studio said...

Oh, I love Victorian valentine cards, always so pretty. Congrats on the hat bid and enjoy wearing each and everyone!

Kathryn Magendie said...

Oh! I love that last one, the black one -- very nice hats!

Nine hats - this makes me laugh, but in a nice way :[)

Deb Shucka said...

What great hats! I'm especially drawn to the purple one with the net. My closet wall is covered with hats I've picked up here and there. It's nice to know someone else who's crazy about them.

Elenka said...

I can never wear hats..the shape of my head, and my sister's too, is just not conducive to wearing hats. Too bad, cause I would love it. Oh well.

Vicki Lane said...

What a fun bunch of hats!

Midlife Jobhunter said...

I wish hats would come back in style. I like the way I look in them. Wear them well!

La Belette Rouge said...

Hope that your Valentine's day is the kind that required you to hold onto your hat!

Hope hubby is feeling better, Carol. You all have had a rough winter health-wise.. Hope spring will come soon to Mississippi.

I love hats but don't wear them often --unless it is for hiking... My hubby likes hats--so I bought a fancy one once. But--I never liked it and felt uncomfortable wearing it. I do like seeing vintage hats on others though.

Hugs,
Betsy

Oh excellent. I happy for you that you won these hats. I hope you'll post photos of yourself modeling them. :)
