Vintage Feathers

So I like to wear hats, flowers and feathers in my hair. This does not go unnoticed, sometimes more admiringly than other times which means sometimes less but that is ok I wear these things because I like them. So an elderly woman that I know enjoyed the feathers I wear and said she had something for me. I stopped by her home to visit one day and she brought out what looked like a little purple bird nest. It was a headband she wore in the 40s' her husband thought her a little silly but she said it always made her feel special and pretty. I was very grateful that she wanted to share this with me. I brought it home and did the needed repairs and added some vintage buttons to pep it up a bit. Interesting enough the tag was still in the inside and it says West Germany. I have worn it a few times because as you may expect I have to plan the whole outfit around it. I wore it again this Sunday and she was thrilled. So nice that something that is 60 years old is still bringing joy to her and now to the both of us. I wanted to share a picture, it is not great but you can see it is very pretty.
