Hey everyone! I hope y’all had fun last post learning about all the exciting things you have helped happen recently for House of Harvest! Thanks also to those of you who nominated my blog on Country Livings Blue Ribbon Blogger Awards. If you would still like to vote, the polls are open until July 29th.
This week’s junk in the trunk was an unexpected new favorite! Don’t you love those times when you don’t even really know what you’re looking for, then BLAM-O! It just hits you! That’s how I felt when I saw these amazing vintage hat forms begging me to take them home and show off their gorgeous details!
These are two great examples of old millinery pieces! One is for a round hat with a wide brim and the other looks to be for a fedora or cowboy hat, yeeeehawwww!
The two parts fit together and slip apart. Check out that fabulous wood grain!
This next one is really cool too, it comes with a heavy metal weight used to form the top of the fedora/cowboy hat.
The old Milliners knew how to do it right. Such attention to every detail and great quality. Don’t you just LOVE the imprinted numbers for the hat sizes? MMM MMMM GOOD!
