Tuesday Display Chain #9 Hats and Bonnets

This weeks display chain theme was choosen by Pamela at Civil Folks.I'm no expert on the hat and bonnets but do know they are a prim staple for our prim decorating.I only have one prairie bonnet in my collection but hope to buy a few more soon.... Hats and bonnets were a staple in times gone by.Wether for modesty,warmth,to keep the sun out of ones eyes,fashion,mourning or maybe just to hide unwashed hair LoL...Here are a few pics for todays theme..Sweet antique trade card babes in bonnets....
Of course Santa since his victorian time images were posted had his red and white velvet hat...

Prairie bonnets in differnt styles..All simple and plain but perfectly prim.....
Fancy bonnets for sunday church meetings,socials and wealthier victorian ladies...

Mourning bonnets were always in black a custom of victorian times.Worn to show grief and mourning as a sign of respect for the dead..Could be plain like mine.(this one is listed in my etsy shop)....

Or fancy and elaborate as shown by this old advertisement....
Thanks Misi for hosting and Pamela at Civil Folks for this weeks theme.I wasn't sure were to go with this one so hope you enjoyed it.Stop by Misi's blog to check out who participated.I can't wait to visit everyones each week always so amazing what everyone comes up with.. Warm Blessings!~Amy
