Head Vases

Head Vases - aah. I've found and kept many over the years (and yes I have let some find new homes too). The Girl in a Yellow Sunbonnet, remains one of my favorites.
She has worn peonies over many summers as well as dahlias, both make wonderful bonnets.

Saturday a 1964 Relpo head vase was found.
This Lady loved pink carnations for her bonnet.

If you want a bit more information about head vases I have written about them in the past. On February 19, 2011 I wrote a post about head vases with a bit of history included and on November 30, 2010 a post about a Rubens Lady Head vase.

  4. The new head vase is very elegant looking. I remember my mother having a couple on the window sill growing up and wish I had them now.

  9. I love the smell of peonies. We moved ours this spring and they rebelled by not blooming this year :( Maybe next year.

  12. I was out and about a few weeks ago and saw a huge collection of these. Some so cute, a few were laughable creepy. Yours look just right with the flowers in them. Maybe I should reserve judgment until I've seen all of them with flowers in their hair/head/hat.

  13. Oh, yes! Your sunshine hat lady is a dear! But, I do love your elegant miss with the pink carnations - more my style. I have a Rubens lady in blue with pearl earrings which I acquired at an auction. I also have a knock off model with more wear and tear - including a crack. I still like her, though - for the vintage appeal. Lovely to see so many commonplaces we share - will want to visit again for your inspiration and tutorials!
    Joy!
