My Amish Bonnet.....


I have my Amish Bonnet,it came in the mail today! I tried it on right away...my son Thomas just looked at me smiled and said,Mama...really? I smiled back and said,Yes son...really. Then he smiled and asked,So when are you getting the electricity and water cut off? I answered...I am keeping the water,unless you can dig me a well.
I told him all I need now is my horse and buggy then I am setting off for PA. ....he laughed and said..Yes mam...I can just see ya now!

This is such a cute post Shelley!
It reminds me of my favorite black felt winter hat with a felt purple flower attached. When I first wore it, my youngest son told me very sweetly that I looked like Mary Poppins! I still love to where this hat every winter. I think we should wear what we like, and feel good wearing.
You look lovely Shelley,

"Mama, really?" I can hear my daughters saying the same thing. You look like my Mrs. Merritt in your picture. She was older than you, though. She had a huge influence in my life when I was ages 3-6 'way back in the early 60s. Everything she was, I want to be. Still not there.

It suits you perfectly, Shelley! I can just imagine what my kids would say if I ordered one. They're already a little worried since I've been reading my Amish book as of lately! :)

You look pretty in your Amish bonnet!

We were part of an Amish – Mennonite group for a while, wore such bonnets and dressed like them. It mortified my extended family and they cut me off (shunning) from visiting, until I stop wearing such clothing. God taught us a lot while we were among such simple folks and we learned to lean on the Lord even more. We no longer belong to that group for they moved, all of them to a new location, which we could not follow. My heart is still tied to them and I miss them terribly, thanks for the fond memories. God bless you as you wear the bonnet and live simple.
