Vintage hats, brandy and summer gloves

"When I am an old woman I shall wear purple, With a red hat which doesn't go and doesn't suit me, And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves, And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.” Jenny Joseph

I have several beautiful vintage hats that I need to photograph and list this week. I'm entertaining the idea of staging them with the brandy and gloves- well unless I drink the brandy first. Thats dangerous as the result of the photos may not be all I'd hoped. While you are awaiting this arrival of this newsworthy artistic expression, I'd like to introduce you to a lovely Jojo's customer, Ms. Kris, from British Columbia. Kris recently purchased these two beautiful vintage hats from me:

I like to invite my customers to submit photos of themselves in their Jojo's vintage for the blog. Its so fun to see the new "lives" these old beauties get! Kris was kind enough to send back pictures of herself in the hats and included the info on her other wonderful etsy vintage finds in the photos:

Styling with Etsy:

The vintage blue gloves were from Maybel57

The vintage light blue dress was from AuntSistersPicks

And the brown cuff was from Labyrinth Leathercraft

Kris seems like such a cool cat! She loves her hats and says, "I like an assortment of styles when it comes to hats and clothing; from vintage retro dresses to making myself medieval gowns, I think I've worn it all. If I like it, I'll wear it, no occasion needed!" Now thats my kind of girl!

Other than wearing hats, Kristin enjoy drawing, sewing and working with her husband on their company, Dingo Games. They make computer and iOS games, like Laser Dolphin and Tasty Planet for the iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad. Check them out! She also has a blog, http://www.tatterhood.com/, where she posts drawings, some crafts, and game updates. Please stop by and say hi to Kris and see what she's up to!

Meanwhile, stay tuned, as those little beauties are all lined up in the studio, awaiting their Jojo's debut!
