So let's begin! First is hat with browns, lots of pretty feathers, and leopard print! This hat is paired with a Royal Albert Keepsake teacup and saucer set.
More feathers grace this burgundy, white, and black hat, which I paired with a Royal Albert new country roses set.
This black and red hat has fancy black trim with sequins and black and gold netting that trails down the back of it. I've paired it with Royal Albert's Lady Hamilton.
The blue and yellow hat below is a "country" hat inspired by a piece of blue and white checkered ribbon my mom happened to have in her collection of odds and ends. what better match to this pretty hat than a Shelley? This is a Shelley Harebell pattern.
You're probably wondering why I matched the teacup set below with this pretty sunflower hat. My yellow set has daffodils (which are spring) while this hat is definitely late summer. This Elizabethan set named Caroline (I do love Caroline patterns!) has yellow and even some of the yellow wheat-like accents like on the hat in addition to roses and blue flowers, and definitely says summer to me!
I think I've probably tipped my hand a bit now--you can probably figure out what my favorite china company is. Five out of the twelve I choose just so happen to be Royal Albert ;).
