I am sorry that it has been so long since my last entry, I have had a number of difficult days related to my cancer treatment. Also, there was a frantic hunt for a Chinese Frog Closure....let me say I had no idea how difficult it would be to find a decent one, even on-line. Only in a crafting house would this be considered something of an emergency! I finally tracked down a beautiful vintage one on etsy, and decided on it at the suggestion of my husband (who so rarely offers his opinion on matters of dress or notions that I had to). ANYwho, now I'm waiting on its delivery to do the final stuff on my first big project on the year. I can't wait for you all to see it!
I've mentioned before that I LOVE hats. Love them. I don't have as many non-winter hats as I'd like, but Winter hats are a true obsession. Scarves & gloves as well. So I thought for fun, I'd pull out part of my collection for you to see.
|My furriest, most wonderful of the Target hats. Works wonderfully against Minnesota Winters.|
|Handmade by a group who makes hats for chemo hair-loss. I plan on profiling them in the near future.|
|I lived in NYC for 13 years, this is my "oldest" hat, purchased at a store in the Village called "Himalayan Visions." It's Tibetan Alpaca!|
|A Hallowig made by the amazing Eileen.|
|The newest beauty, made by the wonderful ladies at Girls with Good Taste|
|Another from Target. It's one of those hood/scarf|
combos but the killer is the puffball at the end of each hood pull.
|A "vintage" scarf/hat (it has a teeeeny bill!) combo from Urban Outfitters. I used to have more UO hats, but 4 moves + divorce + accidental stuff in the purge = oops lost it!|
OK, 3/4 view. One of the most joyful hand-made caps ever!
|A gift from my oldest (since grade school!) friend. There are 2 other knitted flowers, they are all interchangeable.|
|OK, I love stripes on hats.|
|This one is marbled and slightly felted. The lovely scarf came from my friend Amy, who grew up in MN and understands.|
|Purple Marble. Purple is such a glorious color!|
