Swing, Brother Swing!




I found a boater!!! Well a version of a boater. I was thrilled when I went to the Salvation Army yesterday and found this lovely hat among a pile of straw cowboy hats. When I got home and had the time to really look in the mirror and figure out how to wear it, I couldn't stop myself from dancing! Mind you I'm not the best dancer. It's been since I was about ten that I've attempted tap dancing. In fact I felt much more like little Edie Beale than Gene Kelly...lol! I'm telling you I must have danced around the house for about an hour! Anyway, I had a blast! Oh yes, and the dress I'm wearing is my new love! I just received it in the mail from Spanish Moss Vintage. Take care darlings! :o)
