Monday Montage

Growing up on my grandparents farm meant wearing jeans in the Winter and shorts in the Summer...and always a pretty dress for Easter mass and a new Easter Bonnet! I always enjoyed looking at all of the pretty hats the ladies would wear at church..and the men would have on their hats too...just not inside the church.

I always felt that I was born too late in I enjoy watching the old black & white movies or going through old sepia photographs paying special attention to what folks back in the day were wearing...nothing like today...our ancestors would probably have a heart attack if they saw the fashion of today.

I recently purchased a gentleman's spring hat from the 1920's and an early 1900's bodice that I decided to hang over my early dresser in our bedroom. Looking at this hat the other day reminded me of the fancy Easter Bonnets and gentleman hats of my childhood. so I decided that would be the first Monday Montage. Below is a montage of my bedroom and another one of some fancy ladies hats!

  3. I remember wearing an Easter bonnet when I was young but not sure I have any pics. I haven't worn a bonnet on Easter on any other time in a long time!
