My Vintage Hat Rack

"Grab your coat and grab your hat, leave your worries on the doorstep. Just direct your feet to the sunny side of the street!" So goes an old tune. At our cottage we like to be prepared for any adventure and we always like to be happy. If you need a vintage straw hat from I Magnin, we have it. If you need a straw hat to protect you from the sun while on the links, we have it too. How about a vintage velvet riding helmet?? Check!! Need a vintage camera in it's case, we have you covered. Now how about a little straw bag to carry some cash to go thrifting for vintage treasures???

To see more vintage treasures hop on over to Suzanne's place for Vintage Thingie Thursday! You can find her at her fabulous blog The Colorado Lady. Wait a minute, I think I must have a vintage map to get you from Idaho to Colorado via the easiest route. Shall I pack you a lunch in a vintage picnic basket??

What's that Bentley? I know I mentioned lunch, but you just had dinner!!

Susan and Bentley

  5. straw hats always reminds me of walking on the beach or in the garden enjoying the beautiful weather! thanks for sharing and happy VTT.

  6. Love that velvet riding hat! I assume, my dear, it is yours :) Do you have a horse now, Susan? I know you are a rider. You know I was with my Granny and Grandpa most every weekend. They lived 10 miles away. He kept a horse for a guy on the farm. I named her Princess. She was always pregnant it seemed. I might do a post on her sometime. I have a funny story about her.

    Bentley, I am missing my poochies while on vacation :(

  14. I love all your vintage goodies! I have three vintage hat racks like yours. Whenever I see them for a good price I just have to pick them up. They're great organizers.

    Be sure to visit the cottage, and get the details for the three linky parties I'm starting up the first week of June. Would love to have you and Bentley join in on the fun!

    Have a great Memorial weekend!

  16. Oh! Your post brought back memories, I used to love I Magnin! My mother and I used to go to the one in Beverly Hills. Way WAY out of my league but it was so much fun to see the beautiful linens, etc. My mother always said "when my ship comes in".

    Love your things ever ready for an adventure!

    Happy VTT,
