My Hat Trick!

decorating with collections is an easy way to bring your own personality into your home, 
and changing them up seasonally is a fun way to change the 'wardrobe' your house wears!

i love straw hats, and have a nice collection (tho it is smaller than it used to be).
displayed in spring and summer, i often hang them on a pegrack or pile them all on a chair.
sometimes, i even hang them on a wall. yes, RIGHT on the wall, as seen here...
it's as simple as putting a few clear pushpins in the wall and plopping a hat on it.

a grouping like this makes it pretty easy to grab one when needed - and hey, it's free wall decor!

then there's that OTHER hat trick... continue reading to see what i used under those chapeaus!

the trick? just flip a large glass vase upside down, or use a large brandy snifter right-side-up,
and they become 'head'-shaped forms for displaying hats.

used this way, those plain ol' florist vases that you find at every thrift shop
look for all the world like a graceful neck & head beneath a hat!
my large brandy snifter (a gift from my BFF Lori on my 50th bday, filled with orchids)
is also a perfect place to display some of my shells!

i've shared this simple idea in every retail visual merchandising seminar i've held for over 15 years,
and it never fails to make people literally jump outta' their chairs and shout 'why didn't i think of that??!!!'

i love the simplicity of the neutral+white palette here... it's peaceful.
just the way i want my summer to be!
