Stylin' and Profilin'

Hats. I adore hats. Big hats, little hats, vintage hats make me giddy. They're a classy accessory and yes it's important to find the hat that 'fits' y-o-u in style, size, color and fabric. I had a great-great Aunt Lee who was a hat maker. She owned a little store downtown and sold her wares along with some beautiful silk scarves and embroidered hankies. I vaguely recall going into town with my grandparents on a Saturday afternoon and visiting the store (I was about 5 yrs old). Thin boxes were stacked with hankies and scarves and my Aunt Lee would playfully put hats on me and then hold a round stand mirror to see the new accessory. 
 Nothing says class like a man in a hat. I do wish society would return to a classier dress style than the no-style- wear-what-you-want (including pjs) of today. Makes me cringe.
Previously thought for boys only, I saw a young girl sporting this same style and I liked it so my sewing machine was put to work. It's important to protect kids' (and adult) faces from the summer sun. I hope these fit the bill (hat bill, that is ;) ). They're certainly fun for the hat maker
                        Another little hat for a girl. A traditional summer style for anyone.
 The hats were shipped and yes, I used tracking considering our pony express postal service. They are to arrive by the weekend but a birdie informant has tweeted (I'm not referring to social media) the recipients are not home nor will they be home to receive them. Oh well....they'll either be forwarded or someone else will be sportin' these hats.
I say whoever receives them, wear them in style :D

Hubband wears hats and thusly has a winter and summer fedora, a short top-hat, a winter bowler, and at least one or two more, not even counting the baseball style ones.

What cute hats! I'm sorry their intended recipients weren't there to enjoy them right away.
