Decorating with Straw Hats { Part 2 }

If you follow this blog regularly then you should know exactly what this post is all about.  But if not, you can catch up in this post here which is all about decorating with straw hats. You'll also find lots of great inspirational pictures.

I LOVE straw hats because they remind me of my Grandma Nora who has recently passed away. I did a little contribute about her in this post here.

 Well I'm pleased to say that I did get my Grandmas straw hats.  I feel very blessed to have them and I will Cherish them forever.  They will always remind me of her and the kind of person she was,
 Hardworking, Healthy and Happy.

My favorite hat is the one to the far left with the red edge.  My brother had found it in my grandma's potato pit.  He says he thinks it's the one she wore most, and probably had hung it up down there for the last time.

As you can see, I have brought my collection of straw hats into my bedroom.
They are hanging from a piece of salvaged wood above my bed.

Although It's hard to see from the pictures, the bed sheets are a Navy and White stripe.  I recently saw them at Target (Cotton Jersey set in a bag) for $24.99. They had my name all over them, so I just had to have them. If you haven't noticed I have this thing for a Navy and White Stripe. And to prove it, I brought in a few pillow cases and a rug from around the house and took a picture.  Plus I'm sure you can find a lot more Navy and White stripes hanging in my closet.
 I love it! 

In closing, I thought I'd re-share this picture of my Grandma Nora wearing one of her Straw hats. 

{ I Love you and miss you so much}.

Thanks for Stopping by,


  1. What a great collection and a wonderful way to remember your lovely Grandma.

  2. Awwwww, this post brought tears to my eyes! I love the hats and the meaning behind them. So sweet! You are blessed to have such great memories!
    Okay, navy! I have a navy couch that I would like to throw in the yard. Its 16 years old and still in good condition so I hate to get a new one. I'm trying to decorate around it adding splashes of blue here and there but I want a country look for my home and navy, well... I'm struggling. One good thing is it goes well with my little bit of beach decor. Sorry for the rant... I'm hoping your love of navy rubs off on me :)Maybe I should look into slipcovers.
