Birthday Hat

Let's say this is the weekend before my birthday.  Rewind to the day that I was packing everything I could pack into a weekender bag for my first and most awesome trip to NYC.  The forecast for mid January was mid 20's to 50's.  What's a Bartholomew Cubbins to do?

I narrowed my hat options to four.

1) the Stormy Kromer Blizzard Hat:
purchased on a trip to the UP a couple of years ago, nothing says "mid west-gal's first trip to the big apple" like a hat with ear flaps

2) vintage 1960's sheep's skin hat:
found at a local thrift, super warm and tall enough to accommodate Marge Simpson's hairdo

3) vintage German beret:
versatile!  works at the art museum as well as on a U Boat

4) vintage black felt bowler with the brim turned down:
really looks good when pointing at a landmark

next post will reveal which hat went to the city

You Must Enter to Win

I'm honored to have my treasury chosen as winner for the 100th Vesties Team Challenge!
The fun part, in addition to having my shop featured in the 101st challenge is that I get to be judge and jury of all submissions.  Tune in next week for the news.
