I went jaunting about this weekend to one of my favorite antique houses in the world. It holds treasures and memories for me, and of course, my beloved Closet of Hats...where all things magical happen. Something about its walls beg me to tell a story. Walk with me through a few chambers of timeless simple beauty. My camera was not in perfect form. Please forgive. Each visit reveals something new I missed the last time I visited. I'll narrate while we shop... if you don't mind.
I have decided to purchase the green stained glass window in the Closet of Hats. I always considered it part of the magic room at the top of the stairs you see....it never occurred me until just this moment that perhaps I could recreate it in Bloggingham. Why not?
She always catches my eye with a knowing nod. I'm going to leave her be. I think she should continue to live in the spooky old house. In fact, she is spooking me out right now. Moving along...
A white artificial Christmas tree from the 50s and a beautiful old white cupboard with green handles. My favorites in this upstairs room are the boxes of vintage glass ornaments tucked away everywhere.
(See that oval window to the left? That's the Closet of Hats)

and try on a fortune of hats
Where else would you hang a hat?
