I have a thing for hats.
I just love the warmth and texture they add to a room and when I’m shopping second hand stores I’m always on the look-out for ones that are comfortably worn and slightly quirky…
Today, in honor of these dog days of summer I thought I’d share some of my favorite hat vignettes with you. Sorry I don’t have a lot of the original sources.
Here’s a photo of some of my hats in the entry of our former home.
Since then I’ve continued adding to my collection and now that we’re living in an actual beach community they really complement our cottage vibe.
I recently hung a single hat on my office gallery wall where it resembles a bonnet over my vintage gal.
And here’s a shot from our all-white guest bedroom…Van Gogh surrounded by straw hats.
Did you know there are stories of Van Gogh painting late into the night with candles on his easel and in the brim of his hat?
Just a little straw hat trivia.
So after seeing these photos,
can you think of a good spot around your home to display a hat?
On a side note, my parents are visiting all this week and we’ve been busy hanging out and having fun together. Life is good. Tomorrow we head to Disneyland—haven’t been there in years (I want to see if the Tiki Room is still there)
Also-I’ve been doing a few home projects with my Dad (of course) and I’ll be back shortly to show you what I did with those 150 year old corbels!
Happy August Days,
