Easter Bonnets!

How long has it been since you've had a Easter bonnet??  I don't know about you, but when I was a child our Easter frock was the cat's meow!  I had my new frilly dress with ruffled underwear, lace on my socks, patten leather shoes, gloves and a Easter bonnet!!  Easter was my favorite time because I got a new frock, head to toe!  Did you know that the reason everyone got a new Easter outfit was because of "luck".  It is suppose to be "good luck" to wear a new outfit on Easter! 

I don't dress up very much for Easter any longer, things are so much more casual today, it's really sad and I do miss it, but I thought I'd share a few bonnets with you that I decorate for Easter and the Kentucky Derby which is just around the corner!!









Do you get a new outfit for Easter?  Do you wear a Easter bonnet?  Are you going to the Kentucky Oaks or Derby?

Happy Easter to all!!  Have a blessed weekend.

  1. Girl what can't you do? Those are stunning. Sadly I wear capris usually and a casual top. Just a brunch on the patio.

  2. Those hats are great. You do a wonderful job. I don't do hats at all. I think they're very cool looking but have just never been a hat person personally, probably because of flat hair. :)

  3. Lovely! I went to the Derby once and bet on Genuine Risk. She won $22 on a $2 bet. The first and last money I've won! I have to work tomorrow because everyone at Lowe's has to work one day of a weekend and I'm new.

    Hope you have a wonderful Easter! Hey Cher, Didn't your mom wear big hats? I somehow remember that...

  5. My mom would make us girls an outfit every Easter, and we had to buy a bonnet and gloves to go along with it. I remember how the elastic from the bonnet use to always HURT under the chin :)

  6. I don't think I ever had an Easter bonnet, though I did get a new dress, etc. every Easter to wear to church.
    I don't get anything new anymore. As you said, it's more casual now.
    I think it was much more fun back in the days of new Easter outfits!
