After seeing absolutely beautiful things’ post on beach hats I had to throw my hats into the ring (more like my collected hat pictures). Although my hat collection is more the country straw farm/garden hats, I really love the idea of artfully displaying items that are both used and useful. Collections of precious/breakable objects stress me out – but that is mostly just because I am ridiculously clumsy, and I have been known to break things as I am attempting to dust them!
My Dad always favored tough Australian suede rancher hats (I remember vividly when his hat went through the baler and survived albeit a bit chewed up!) , my mom more a fan of the large peasant-y straw brimmed hats, and I like everything in between – currently they are stacked on top of our refrigerator in the kitchen but I am hoping to get some shaker like pegs in the entryway to make them easier to reach / display.
