This has been an amazing project. We have one more post following this one, and that will complete the alphabet.
Again, Vivian has selected some very pretty headwear for us today. There is a bonus hat too. Let’s go!
This hat is stunning. The colour combination is so chic, and we love the safari vibe.
This hat was created in July 2016 and is in the top twenty all-time most popular hats. It may even be in the top ten, which is amazing. Hattingdon has 100s of hats now, so there is a lot more competition.
That butterfly is still mesmerized by the button.
This hat hardly ever gets an outing and it is so darling and fun. It is goes way back to Vivian’s earliest days. It was so long ago she cannot remember the year. A good possible guess is 2010.
Vivian named the hat Vita. Vita is a feminine name derived from the Latin word meaning life. If this hat does not give you a “hatful of smiles”, nothing will.
Where does she come up with these ideas? Hattingdon looks good in green doesnt she?
See you back here tomorrow with Vivian’s final picks.
When Vivian went to select hats for this post she was astonished to find that we did not have a single hat beginning with the letter “I”. She had to address that right away.
Vivian created two brand new hats! She named the classic hat Ivy and the fashion hat Ilona.
What a lovely hat. Look at this one!
What do you think? Isn’t she a doll? It has a Roaring 20’s sort of vibe going on doesn’t it?
And the name Ilona? Wikipedia (the fount of all knowledge) states:
‘Ilona is a common name in Finland, where it is considered to refer to the Finnish word ilo (“joy”) and ilona literally means “as a joy [to someone]”. It is also common in Latvia, Estonia, France, Lithuania and Poland (formerly in crown union with Hungary).’
Here we are, on Day 7, our final post of the series. This design is just so fun . . . and oh so Christmassy.
Absolutely everyone adores this hat. No doubt about it — Vivian outdid herself. Here it is!
Created in 2013, and released in 2017, Macy is the most popular Hattingdon Christmas hat of all time.
This hat would do very well for Boxing Day tomorrow too . . . . in a way. What is Boxing Day?
“Boxing Day is held every December 26th in many countries associated with the British empire,” states the BBC. “The name comes from a time when the rich used to box up gifts to give to the poor. Boxing Day was traditionally a day off for servants — a day when they received a special Christmas box from their masters. The servants would also go home on Boxing Day to give Christmas boxes to their families.”
From all of us to all of you, we wish you a very, merry Christmas. Love, Team Hattingdon.
