Where's My Hat?

Women today don't wear hats so much. My favorite is a black painter's style cap I put on when I've had a particularly bad hair day. It has also come in handy on particularly cold days. Somehow, you fell warmer with a hat on your head.

I'm still working on clearing off my craft table. That's where I found this scrap of Graphic 45 Romantique paper touting crown hats. I immediately put it on "page 2" in my Doodle Smash book. It seemed obvious that this would be my "hat" page. The vintage photo of a woman in a hat is actually Daisey Linda Belvin Boniville. I think she might have been my maternal grandmother's sister-in-law. I think we wear hats differently today than women did a century ago.

I couldn't resist adding a Cat-in-the-hat hat to my collection and a penquin's hat which I colored with my Spica glitter pens. I also colored existing doodles with my Spicas. I also found some hat quotes I liked and added to the page. The rest of the hats came from the Victorian Tea Lady in Milford, Delaware.

I wonder what will happen to page 3.


  1. LOL!! Oh,'s FABULOUS!! I love everything about it! The quotes, the variety, the doodles, the papers! Fantastic that you included photos of yourself wearing a hat! It's just wonderful! I have to tell's going to be tough to top this page but I can't wait to see more!...Nancy :o)

  2. Thanks again, Nancy. I haven't finished cleaning off my craft table, so we'll see what I uncover next.
