Monday Montage- Goodies I Had To Keep

Well this years Antique Trail has come and gone.
Got drenched on Friday.
Semi Drenched on Saturday.
Sunday recuperated from being drenched.

However, I was able to find a few goodies
I just had to keep
and some I will add to the store.

For now, here is what I am keeping for our bedroom.

Circa 1915 Edwardian Hat Box

This hat box was on the White Star Line vessel Northland.

A gray wool Stetson Gentleman's Hat.

Added this hat to the top of the hat box.

Now add a well worn child's shoe.

Finally add one cast iron millinery shoe.

Next I found
This blue prairie dress.

And these early long stockings.

Close up of these stockings. They were crocheted.

Well I think it was worth getting drenched...
What do you all think?

Now I have to catch up on all of your blogs.

Oh before I forget,
Two more days for the giveaway.
