Vintage Again


I guess this dates me, but I recall my aunts and grandmothers using hat pins like these. The doily was picked up in an antique shop for under a dollar. I think it's unfinished since it has threads still hanging from it. It's a treasure!

I wish women still wore hats like in those days. They are so pretty and the hat pins can be too. Love the little doily. I love the delicate work.
I received your gift package today. Love the spirit pillow and sea glass so much. Thank you Barbara. Can you tell me more about a spirit pillow?

I remember that my grandmother made doilies like that. I think they are all long gone.

I can remember my grandmother and her sister wearing hats with pins like those in them. I think my mother still has them. I should check and see.

I remember the hat pins also. I always loved them. As for the 'unfinished' doily -- perhaps one day our UFO's will end up in an antique store marked 'vintage'!

Oh I love what you found. Maybe threads were left to make it more vintage looking.

Me too! My grandmother loved hats and used these pins also. Good memories.
