For The Love Of Summer Garden Hats

Did you ever find you are a collector of things?!  You don't mean to be but you just are attracted to certain things and buy them and then the next thing you know you have a collection.

Well I have been like that with garden and straw hats.  Vintage and not so vintage just love them all.

So I came across a few on my junkin trip the other day.





I like when I come across some men's style hats too.  I hung these on the gathering sign that leads out to the back garden deck.


So these are a few of the newest hats I have found.

These are a few of the vintage hats I have hanging in my front entry way.  Gotta love a good garden hat.

Have a wonderful week and thank you for your visits always.

  1. Now I feel the extreme urge to go buy hats!! Those look so cute there. We have a mudroom (which I've never shown) and the hooks would look so much cuter right now with hats. :)

  9. Kris, you have the sweetest ideas for decorating your home. I've just been reading over your older blog posts. I love all your ideas. Would you please say what paint you use on your furniture pieces. I'm trying to get back to the shabby feel and want to try painting some pieces. Yours look so nice. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

  17. Hi Kris, I use to have a small collection of hats, straw, and garden ones, and years ago I just got rid of them in my retails shop! Now looking back and forward to all the lady bloggers like you who have them hanging, stacked, and displayed so sweetly I so wished I had not sold most of them off.

    Your sweet wall calls to garden, wearing one or not :) love the Gatherings.

    Xoxo

  19. hello sweet Kris,
    All your hats are always very sweet and pretty, be it manly or feminine. I also collect hats, for my complexion is very fair. Lucky for you mon amie we live many miles away for I would be borrowing some of your delightful hats.
    I adore just throwing them around during the Summer hazy days of lazy bright sun filled days.
    A visit to your blog is always comforting like a warm hug! For in your postings I delight in your chippy style and your sweet words.
    xoxo,
    Vera

  28. Yes, Kris. I have quite a few collections. I too love garden hats both men an women's but haven't found a way to display them yet. You sure are talented in the art of display. I love your gathering challkboard sign out of the bed post. Wow! You've got a talent for drawing and lettering too. I just love looking at all your vignettes. Pure eye candy!

  33. Good morning Kris! I LOVE HATS, especially of this garden variety! And now you have me thinking about one particular straw hat with a black band. I can't wear it anymore, but I can certainly use it for a photo prop!

    Lovely photos as always! Enjoy another bright and beautiful day! Anita

  34. I had the same collection of straw hats a few years back. I ended up keeping 1 and give the rest away. The one I kept I actually wear and have plans to wear it on a fishing trip next weekend on Lake Michigan. Your display is just darling!

  36. I love your hats and they are displayed beautifully. I used to collect angels but stopped a few years ago when my collection was out of hand. Every birthday, Mothers day, Christmas etc I would receive angels. I have since given many away now and sold a few and I kept about 20 of my absolute favorites. I have control on my newest collection, white pitchers! xo

  40. I love the straw hat display. I have a few that I purchased on vacation and use them for propping only. I wish I had the confidence to wear them more regularly but somehow in the city they just seem out of place.

  41. I love straw hats but always have a hard time finding one that fits my big head! I had this great one that I used while gardening, yard sales and going to the beach. Well, last time I went to the beach, last fall, it got left on the couch when we got home - and the puppies ate it! Those little stinkers tore the whole thing apart! So now, I guess I'll have to find another big head hat LOL! I really like how they look hanging in your home. The scream summer and gardens! Hugs, Leena

  42. I'm not a hat wearing person but I've always been attracted to nice vintage hats and admire those who wear or decorate with them. I love your straw hat collection vignettes Kris - so pretty. I especially love how you've hung them on a gorgeous headboard turned chalkboard hanger!
