It's all about the Hats this Friday!

Sometimes I wish that hats never went out of fashion.  I guess they really haven't, but we just seem to have lost that graciousness in women who are wearing beautiful hats and the desire to wear them.  I know that whenever I have worn one, I felt a little bit out of place.  I don't think I even have one in the house.  The picture below is of my Mother wearing the most beautiful hat I have ever seen in real life, as I remember getting down the hat box off the closet shelf that had this hat in it, when I was a very little girl.  I think it was around until I was about 11, then sadly got lost with a move across the country.  The roses were the most beautiful shades of pink organdy.  I use to envision myself all grown up and wearing it.  I think my mother looked smashing in it, and in honor all the hats that people will be wearing come this Friday for the ROYAL WEDDING, I thought I would post these pictures.
 And I hope all of you will delight in the watching of the' Royal Wedding' as I will.  It isn't something that comes around all that often.  And maybe I will even wear a hat while I am watching! lol

Wonderful, Michele! What a GORGEOUS photo of your mother in that exquisite hat--how lucky you are to have that! Wish you still had the hat, though...

My daughters and I will be watching the wedding on Friday...I'm planning on making some English treats to enjoy while we watch--can't wait!

Hope you're having a wonderful day, my friend!

I hope you will record the royal wedding so I can see! I want to watch it but it is on in the middle of the night here! :) Isaac thinks it is funny that I want to watch it but I just think there is something cool about it I guess.

Hi Michele,
Great post, beautiful picture of your mother, she is so lovely that I barely noticed the hat though. I actually just bought a gardening hat for you mom for mother's day, it has the biggest woven brim and I am planning to make a fabric flower to pin to it.
enJOY a lovely evening,
Kimberly

I too love hats. Women always look so regal and refined wearing them. Just think of the bad hair days it would cure. I never have felt comfortable wearing one though because I hate to stick out.
I love that photo of your mom. That is so neat to have. What a beautiful woman.
I will be glued to the tv watching the wedding too. I have been looking so forward to this and I even remember watching the last one.It is so fun for me to take it all in. I hear rain is forcast though that day so that's the pits. oooohh maybe cool umbrellas!

I'm sure that the wedding is going to be a wonderful thing to watch but I'll be at a Gourd Art Festival in MO. I love hats also and I think your Mother is a beautiful woman, wearing a beautiful hat!

Maybe there are more of us Hat Lovers out there than we know & just need to start wearing them until it catches on again. I own just one. A silly sequined visor that my Grandmother got when she turned 70. I loved seeing the many gorgeous hats and headbands with floral arrangements this morning! (I got up at 4:30am & hurried over to watch with girlfriends for a Royal Breakfast... such fun.
The photograph of your Mother is beautiful! What a wonderful memory you have of it.
