Happy Easter!

Every year my mother asks me a few days before Easter if I am going to wear an Easter bonnet over to her house. She thinks this is super funny but it only reminds me of the many painful Easters I spent as a child in frilly dresses and curled hair. (I like dresses but not the frilly kind and my hair is super straight, rebellious to any kind of curling.) I always reply with rolling eyes, "no, of course I'm not going to wear a bonnet. Do I ever wear a bonnet?"
I recently saw these hats in my 1920's Sears catalog and thought to myself, well I wouldn't mind wearing these as my bonnet! How cute!
 Have a great Easter holiday! -Sarah

Tooo funny! Thankful mom never never made us were bonnets not even when we were dumpled fat babies! But if I were going to "do" a hat it would be the gold one with the flower on it but quiet honestly as you my hair is straight and no "pazazz" at all ..limp and fine and straight ...so a bonnnet LOL only enhances the drab hair....
Happy Resurrection Sunday

Sorry to disagree on this one, but I loved the frilly dresses and matching knickers...lol...my hair is as straight as can be, but was curled to within and inch of it's life for Easter and then Whit week...lol....all sounds daft now, but it's just the way things were then I suppose....hope you've had a good Easter anyway...xxx

Love the pic! we forget that they had color back then because we only see b/w photos!
My mom and I wore hats to church on Easter. went out and picked flowers from our garden to pin on the tops. My mom is gone now, but I always wear
a hat with fresh flowers on Easter. Not many of us though...two old ladies and two little girls, and me! Ah well, I love making a "statement!"
