For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known...I Corinthians 13:12
I decided to wear a vintage hat on this self portrait that I bought many years ago at an Antique shop .. I am unsure of the year of this hat but it may have been made in the 1920's..I am shocked at the prices they are now charging for vintage hats with very little fancy trim when checking a few out at a Thrift Store a few days ago.. Needless to say I did not buy them:)

    Love this self portrait and your hat! What do you expect though? To keep a hat this nice for almost 90 years must have taken a lot of care. I bet it's a very rare hat in today's world.

    This is a beautiful reflections shot Andrea!!!! It is amazing how much antiques, whether it be clothing or furniture or knick-nacks, cost!!!

    Thank you all for your kind response....I love the old vintage hats too but of course no one wears them anymore.....If I wore this hat out of the house I would get some odd looks so it was fun to have an excuse to make use of it.

    The hat is wonderful! It really gives a vintage ambience to the shot, even though you have a new camera. Beautiful work, Andrea.
