Hat Boxes!

I love a hat box! No, I don't mean just one, but lots of hat boxes! I love the pretty papers and fabrics that cover them, ribbons and cords that decorate them, and fancy advertising atop them. They are great for storing the obvious hat, but also scarves, belts, and other accessories. And I can't tell you how many times I have used them, both vintage and new, for gift-giving. A pretty pink satin one filled with tiny crocheted shoes, bibs and little white bible for a special baby girl was the hit of a baby shower. Wine, cheese, crackers and linen napkins for a 10th anniversary gift in a lovely grape vine covered style. And too many bath and beauty products encased in cheery florals to mention! And everyone always loves them. It's like two great gifts in one!

Here a just a few I wanted to share with you today...

I looove them too. They are very handy for keeping things in, I keep photos and some Christmas things in some of mine.

Bonjour LeeAnn,
I love hatboxes too. You can stash nearly everything inside.
Hope you're having a good week,

Such a fabulous subject dear Lee Ann. I started to collect hats this year...mostly because I love using them on my photo I need hat boxes as well to be able to store them carefully :-) I would like to have some like these at home, but I also would like to have one which I can carry /without destroying it/ when I'm traveling...

Thanks for this beautiful links.

Much love: Evi

Ps: I loved the comment you left under the Audrey post...I also answered to you there. Take a look at it when you have time :-)
