Hat Organization

I have an absolute love affair with hats. I don’t believe in wearing them indoors, and honestly, I don’t even wear them a lot- mostly gardening. But I like to have selection.

I also like to just look at them. They can be quite inspirational when sewing.


Some of them have been parts of costumes, some of them were given to me. Some of them are relatively new, and some are older then my relationship with MrGillis.

This collection has mutated over the years – there used to be a whole boatload of trucker caps, a captains hat, more newsboys, a fuzzy white fedora… I’ve donated a lot of really cool hats over the years.

So, seriously, this is so easy. I take a 5 lb (hats are surprisingly heavy duty) command hooks and slap those suckers up. Then I put my “hangable” hats up. I have a whole other collection of floppy winter hats.

Ta-friggen-da folks – I really love how this looks and I’m happy with my functional decorative efforts. This place is really coming together a year after moving in…

Until next time, have a wicked good day.

This is the official website for Gillis Gardens, LLC. Gillis Gardens is a farm, run by myself and my wonderful husband. We believe in biodiversity, organic growing methods and doing things ourselves. I knit, crochet, make jewelry and sew. MrGillis builds, doing everything from our plumbing to our mechanical to our renovations. We are both active members of our little community. We both take care of the plants and animals. He weeds, I harvest. He spreads manure, I plant. We raise multiple breeds of chickens for eggs and meat. We have a herd of Alpacas that we shear every year for their beautiful fiber, which we then have milled into ultra luxurious yarn. We make our own maple syrup, preserves and pickles. We raise bees for honey and herbs for medicine. We also raise pigs for meat and fun. We are the parents of two young children, and consider that our most important job. Follow our adventures here and also on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter.
