Here are a few of my goodies from "The Hunt". You can see the sweet card of the woman & child here (I loved both of their faces) & at the top right is a glimpse of one of the hats I bought but, not to worry I'll show you more later. And the pink & cream crochet pieces I LOVED! Especially the one with the rose on top. And that bit of crochet confection under those pieces are a pair of crocheted gloves. I LOVE THEM!
Here is a close up of the gloves. What do I plan to do with them? Well, in April I am going to Jennifer's Art Event called Petticoats & Parasols (click the side bar button to see the wonder) & I thought these would be marvelous stitched on my parasol. What do you think?
Another angle of the goodies shows yet another hat (top left) that I don't know if I will have the NERVE to cut apart. You see I buy these with such good intentions & then the actual act of taking scissors to them makes me weak in the knees. NOT LISA! Oh no, last year riding home from Round Top she had 3 of the hacked apart in NO TIME AT ALL! GASP!!!!!!!!!! And do you love the buttons? I do!!!!! They are the softest shade of mint green & have perfect little stones in each one of them.
Now you can see that gorgeous BLUE hat! Could you take scissors to that? Also, the beautiful picture of the dog was a gift from Lisa. Go HERE to get the story on that.
And the last photo to share is a close up of the vintage millinery on this hat. Be still my heart!!! I think a couple of these photos are pretty enough to go on my sidebar for the spring. What do you think? Now, I'm off to work on my swap items for Petticoats & Parasols. I only need 24 or is it 26? WHAT WAS I THINKING? I hope you have a beautiful week!
