Are you an "Easter Bonnet" kind of gal?
Hats covered with all kinds of lace, ribbons, flowers, bird nest, and Frills!
These are the things that an Easter Bonnet is made of.
Long before my time....women adorned the tops of their head with Easter Bonnets....
During the Spring season, there is new life all around us. Flowers are blooming and tiny buds are bringing forth new hopes of the wonder of living.
Same holds true for EASTER...it symbolizes a new beginning!
I am sure that women waited with great anticipation for the moment to pack away the old winter hats and to start fresh and anew by decorating their sometimes worn straw hats with items that brought them sunshine and joy....
Spring/Easter .........Yes, it was a time to show off your new Easter clothing and to wear your Bonnet with PRIDE and simple happiness.
I can remember how my MOM would always "starch" petticoats for my sister and me. We sometimes would sit them down on the floor and when our little hands would let go, the big pile of lace would stand there all by itself. This brought us a lot of laughter.
We were so proud because our dresses were like big fluffy "Princess dresses"
to make our outfits complete, we always had our little gloves and that "Big Ol' Easter Bonnet"
I loved those GOOD DAYS!
Never lose an opportunity of seeing something that is beautiful!
