I love hats!!!

  Michelle from Rose Garden Romantic was asking bloggers what do they collect. I tell people that ask the same question not to ask a collector that, asking what you don't collect in my case is easy to answer. We have at one point or the other collected something or all. Something I have collected most of my adult life have been hats. These days they have become a popular thing to wear and to collect so when you find a really good one be ready to pay a lot. I have about five hats in the house that I will never get rid off but at the shop my hats are mostly black, creams, whites and my favorite pink. I love wide brims and lots of millinery flowers. I leave you with a sample of my favorite pinks. Pinky Girls I hope you enjoy.

                                            This baby is still at home. Can you blame me?

                                                    Cute, just not enough flowers for me.

                 I got this one for a song, the shape is cute, I called it my pink Charlie Chaplin Hat.

                 This one was a fun hat, a ton of flowers but it fit funny. It is gone to a lady that say she will      
                          wear it. More power to her!
                                                              This one is gone too.
                               This one looks like a shriners hat. I love the huge pink rose.
                                                                     Yummy
. The flowers on the fuchshia one look too new for me. 


The pink silk on this is a weird shade of mauve. I love the pin.

Last, I wanted to include a picture of our going to be God willing front yard. We pass the home inspection yesterday and we will do the official loan application today. It's one day at a time. My DH is already estimating how long it is going to take him to mow this yard. It is like having your own park. As soon as we go into escrow I will take pictures of the before and after. Lots to do but very exciting. 
Go and check the rest of the Pink Saturday girls. You can find a list @ Beverly's blog HOW SWEET THE SOUND. Blessings, Marta. 

PD   We finished the loan process this afternoon. The mortgage company is going to try to move things faster since the lady owner of the house has terminal cancer and seem to be doing not too well. Say a prayer for this family since they really got a lot in their plates. The son was so sad last week when he told us about the mom. I hope they know their beloved home will be loved and treasured like they did for so many years. I feel lucky and honor to "inherit" this little piece of heaven. Will give you updates as we get closer to closing day. Blessings, Marta.

Hello, dear Marta,
I love hats, too. You know I love anything pretty and feminine. I am so excited for you to be buying a new home. I know how you feel because I felt the same way when I purchased the home I am living in. It was a big step for me, but God provided the way. He will do the same for you. Enjoy your week, sweet friend~ Vicki

I love hats too Marta! I have purchased and then sold my share over the years. I don't have a lot left, but I do enjoy the ones I have.
Blessings~
