Hattingdon looks regal in her jewel embellished crown hat. Our posting here is a nod to the late Queen of England whose burial will take place tomorrow.
This design is vintage Hattingdon. We are not 100% certain, but we believe it dates back to 2008. It is one of Vivian’s first designs, but she cannot remember the particulars of it or what inspired her to create it. She is just glad that she did.
We will not be posting on Monday, and will publish the classic hat selected for it on the following day.
RED. “Red is the color of the Root Chakra, which is the source of energy of life, and vitality. Red feathers are an ode to emotions, courage, passion, and to good fortune.”
YELLOW. “Yellow is the representative color for the Solar Plexus Chakra, therefore, the yellow feather is connected to the Gut Instinct. It is charged with the sun’s energy, and is pulsing with blessings and wisdom. A yellow feather draws attention to intelligence and mental alertness, joy, cheerfulness, and playfulness.”
GREEN. “Green is that of the Heart Chakra, which holds love, relationships, and emotions. A green feather is therefore a sign of abundance, growth and fertility, as well as plants, nature, and healing.”
Hello and happy Monday. It is classic hat time once again.
Vivian, who creates all of Hattingdon’s hats, loves creating designs for her with an architectural influence. This is prettily expressed in the classic hat we picked out for you this Monday, design name “Sugar”.
A stunning hat, don’t you think?
Thank you for stopping by and spending time with us.
We missed Classic Hat Monday but that does not mean we are missing out on a classic hat this week. No siree Bob.
This hat was a mega hit when it was released. Vivian named the hat “Genevieve”. She loves stripes, plus this hat also features her favourite colours.
We had a crazy start to the week. You know what that can be like. It is so nice to be able exhale and get back into our usual groove.
Oh, by the way. Here is where the expression ‘no siree Bob’ comes from. “It is an interjection (US, colloquial) meaning definitely not; no way.” (Source)
There is also of course, ‘yessiree Bob’. Its history is a bit more involved.
‘Yessiree Bob’ comes from “Yes sir!” The “ee” added to the end of “sir” is an exclamation of informality, positivity, and excitement. During the mid-19th century, “Bob” was used as a euphemism for “God,” as in “So help me, Bob!” According to Google N-grams the idiom came into substantial use towards the end of the 19th century.’ (Source)
We admit it. We had not heard of Google N-grams. We need to get out more. Wink. Bye for now!
