I'm a bit bonnet crazy! Here is bonnet number two with the free pattern from Pinterest.
I'd like to make one more bonnet, but we'll see how far I get!
I also want to wish everyone a Happy May Day! I stopped in to a small antique shop downtown and purchased Hamster 2 little May Day gifts.
A pair of wool felt baby shoes from the 1930's. There were no laces so I came home and added my own thin ribbon to match the tiny embroidery on the toe and I think they are just darling. If they fit I'd love to see her wear them with the lace onsie dress I made!
The other item was something I couldn't seem too leave. It is the smallest 1920's mesh purse I have ever seen! The lady said it was doll sized and more than likely made in Germany. She also said she purchased it from a man that came in needing money and he said it was his grandmothers. I didn't find a marking in it at all, but it is in very good shape. I talked her down a few dollars and made the purchase for something special to hang on Hamster's wall and a fun little story to tell her on May Day.
So Happy May Day (Or Bealtaine) to you and yours! I hope you have sunshine and smiles all day long!
