Hats off to Christmas! (Fun Friday)

Rabbit, rabbit. Pinch and a punch for the first of the month. And what’s super exciting about this month, it’s the first day of the Christmas month… woot woot!

With this in mind I thought I change things up for Friday’s this month, from flowers to something a little bit fun. This is just one of two oversized Christmas hats I have. They sit next to our sofa table, one on top of the other filled with fairy lights.

In hindsight, I really should have included the sofa table to give some perspective of the size of these hats which, when stacked, stand three feet tall!

Christmas… don’t you just LOVE IT!









Hats off to a great Christmas! (Wordless Wednesday)

Travel Theme: Hats

Normally I’m not one to shy away from a challenge but this week’s Travel Theme challenge from Where’s my Backpack of Hats has really had me thinking!

My boy and his DD...

This photo is of when my son began his foray into salmon fishing at our local river a couple of years ago, complete with waders and the mandatory hat.

This hat holds a very special significance for him (and for me also) as it was his grandfather’s hat. His grandfather would wear this hat whenever they went on walks together.

What was particularly amusing about this ritual was that my father absolutely detested walking but when it came to pushing “his possum” in the pram, eventually walking side-by-side, there was never-ever a moment’s hesitation.
