Can you tell I really like bonnets? I’ve always been a hat girl, and I very much wish I could wear these bonnets daily. They look pretty, and they hide any bad hair day! I also can make bonnet veils of sheer silk gauze with silk ribbon.

  1. Lovely work!!!!!

  2. Enjoyed looking around your site. I just read susan Morgan’s diary and now, Mary Chestnut’s online. I’m fascinated with their veils on their bonnets and how neat it was to be able to be a little unrecognizable if you chose to with the veil.
