This vintage plant stand is a sweet way to display some of my thrifted hat collection. I love using garden accessories indoors.
This hat stand is a former mug rack, with hooks removed and painted ivory.
A vintage hankie and crocheted doily are tied with a ribbon over polyfil padding
This lamp has an old straw hat for a shade, gussied up with crocheted trim and a silk rose. All items were thrift store treasures.
The bulb clip has a ring for the hat to just sit on.

I have many addictions, including collecting romantic old hats. I've found some unique ways to display some of them that I thought my junker friends might enjoy seeing.

I also use lots of garden stuff in the house - mostly in the bathroom - I use wrought iron pot holders above the toilet and sinks to hold all the misc stuff one needs in the bathroom...a pseudo lion's head fountain is great for my daughter's hair clips and small bands and a coffee mug holder is great for those scuncie style hair bans...

Sharon, I'm afraid that I don't have an helpful information about that bulb clip. I believe that I found it at a thrift store (where else!) and have never seen another one like it. I imagine that lamp supply shops may have them, though, or perhaps you could find one on-line. Barbara Posted: 11:23 pm on February 21st
