Easter Bonnet

Never saw you look quite so pretty before

Never saw you dressed quite so lovely what’s more

I could hardly wait to keep our date this lovely

Easter Morning…

 And my heart beat fast as I came through the door.

For in your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it

You’ll be the grandest lady in the Easter Parade.

When my Mom was a little girl, my Nana made all of her and her sister’s Easter outfits herself. They all had a new dress, new coat, new white gloves and a new little Easter bonnet for Easter Sunday.

When my sister and I were growing up, my Mom did the same for us. We always had a new outfit for Easter. I love that some things never change. Your Easter hat says so much about you. I couldn’t wait to get to church Easter Morning to see what hat Mrs. S. had on. She was in my Nana’s altar society and her hats were straight out of a Hollywood movie of the 1950’s.

In perusing Flickr, I came across a few Easter Bonnet clad ladies of yore and I thought I would share them with you. What is it about that brand new Easter outfit and hat? Enjoy!
