I've become increasingly drawn to the beauty of H*t making. After reading Jill's recent post where she had a site to see (so to speak) . .I was drawn in and mesmerized. See, I'd like to have the self confidence to wear *hats. Why is Canada not Ha*t savvy? Tell me? We used to be. My mom always wore h*ts.
Back to today . .. or should I say last night. We had a scorcher here yesterday and we did the only sane thing we could think of . . .we went to Walmar*t to cool off. We did this after we knew it was starting to cool and the chickens were safe.
I've probably told you this already but when we go there we walk in, synchronize our watches, make sure our cell phones are charged with the volume up and then we head opposite directions for an allotted time. It's just so interesting there. I could just sit on a bench and I'd be happy as a clam.
So, I'm wandering around and I spot the (cloche*?). aka . .Walmar*t . . . .hat. It was on clearance for $4. I snatched it up and sought out a mirror and tried it on and I liked it. My mind was racing with memories of Jill talking about a snippet of lace and I thought to myself, I could do that too.
I came home and opened up the little cedar chest that holds all the tidbits of lace and such from my Grandma and found these little round bits.
I found a matching button (Jill does this too) . . .( I keep mentioning her to bring validity to my new found fun) . . .then I took apart a leather belt to take a bit of trim . . .and badabing .. .
I proudly tried it on for Terry and he asked if the decoration was a bulls eye. Hmm, this tempted me to think of something new to post today, but lacking some adventurous spirit as you found in my last post, I decided to throw caution to the wind and model and post it to boot.
Don't ever say I'm proud . .or not fun.
It's a scorcher here again today. It's 10 in the morning and we are registering 31 Celsius. Ah the poor chickens, I'm glad that they have a smart farmer that installed a misting system to keep them cool. Since it is date day, we are going to sneak off the farm for some lunch and then we'll come back here to keep a vigilant watch.
Have a wonderful day my friends. Be sure to go check out the Louise Green site that Jill featured recently. Such fun.
