Vintage Hat (and the beginning of a new collection...)

One of my Christmas gifts was a vintage hat my mum picked up for me at a second-hand shop. I had mentioned in the summer, after visiting antique shops in both Stratford and Niagara-on-the-lake, that I wanted to start a collection after seeing hundreds of them - everything from your everyday run-of-the-mill hat from the '40s (complete with white gloves, of course), to wedding veil caps from the '60s and more dressy caps like the one mum found for me (complete with glittery shine and black veil).

I don't know if I could pull the look off, (or maybe there's a chance of them coming back into 'style' this summer/fall?) but I might just have to try it on, if only to dance around the house...

Happy New Year!

Homemade crackers which we will pull tonight during our New Years Dinner

"For last year's words belong to last year's language.
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning"
~T.S. Eliot
Happy New Year!
Wishing you all health and happiness in 2009!
