Enid Collins Box Purses

    An Enid Collins purse is an essential for any true vintage purse collector to own.
    With their fun and whimsical designs and their witty names it is easy to amass a whole collection of them!
   Enid Collins originally started out by making purses for her personal use, then began selling them at boutiques near where she lived in Texas. Eventually the purses were being sold all across the country. The pinnacle of their popularity was during the 1960s.
    I have two good resources to recommend to you for learning more about Enid Collins and her bags:
* The website CoolOldStuff has an article about the purses.
* And the book Popular Purses: It's in the Bag! by Leslie Pina and Donald-Brian Johnson has a section with the history of the brand. (This is my favorite book on collecting purses- it is very informative and the values that they list for the purses are appropriate).

    Today I had the urge to write about gloves-so, I began my search of the internet for them.

A Visit To The Hat Museum

Easter_bonnet

This past Saturday I invited my friends over to my house to get dressed up in hats.
With our heads bedecked in fabulous hats we headed over to Pix Patisserie and had champagne and dessert.
Afterwards we went to The Hat Museum where we were lead around on a tour by the museum's owner/curator Alyce.
We had lots of fun!
If you ever find yourself in Portland, I would definitely recommend that you take your own trip to The Hat Museum as well as to Pix Patisserie !

Georgian & Victorian Hair Jewelry

    Fashioning jewelry out of human hair began back in the 1700's.
    Hair jewelry reached it's peak of popularity in the 1800's during the Victorian era.
    To make hair jewelry people would use locks of their own hair or a loved ones hair to braid and weave.
    These sentimental pieces of jewelry were made as remembrance and mourning jewelry as well as a token of affection for a loved one.

    Other interesting Hair links:
    *On the website Victorian Hair Jewelry.com modern day hair artist Sandra Johnson fashions your hair or your loved ones hair into intricately designed pendants.
    *Leila's Hair Museum is located in Independence, Missouri. The museum contains 159 wreaths and over 2,000 pieces of jewelry containing hair.
    When my husband and I took a road trip out to see his family in St.Louis two years ago I tried to convince him that we should stop by the Hair Museum- but, he was too weirded out by the idea. Maybe I can rope him into it this summer when we take a road trip across the U.S. and up to Montreal for my brother's wedding.
