Vivian’s Fave Hats: Letter S

Greetings and salutations. There is some big time nostalgia going on here today. Both of these designs launched Hattingdon Horses, and made them the incredibly popular cartoon horses they became.

Let’s get down to business. Here are Vivian’s selections.

Classic Hat

When this hat was created all those many moons ago, neither Vivian nor any of the rest of us had any idea just how cherished the Savannah hat would become. Hattingdon Horses really began with Curtis, Savannah and Star, and of course, Belle. They were our Fab Four in our early years.

The Savannah classic hat is created in the most luscious shade of lipstick pink with three white lilies dancing across the across the front. Simply sweet . . . . adorable.

Fashion Hat

Then there was Star.

Star Hattingdon.

Star Hattingdon wears a black cowboy hat with a blue hatband, and a white star.

Curtis launched Hattingdon Horses and will forever be an icon. However, from the moment of his appearance, Star became a superstar for oh so many years, and is still going strong today.

Aren’t they great? Sigh.

Mrs Farrell, the creator of Hattingdon® Horses, has made many, many hats for the popular cartoon equines over the years — hundreds of them. Amazingly she never seems to run out of ideas. The ones that are shall we say — a bit “extraordinary” — always seem to be her favourites. Here is an example.

At the beginning of last year, Farrell opened Photoshop, selected one of her basic templates, and began adding layers of lines and boxes and rectangles until she had what you see below.

It has a sort of Deco / Japanese flavor to it, doesn’t it?

See you again soon!

Happy National Cheeseburger Day

Yes, September 18th, National Cheeseburger Day, is nearly over, but we can still have fun. Here is the design that Hattingdon is wearing to celebrate the day. Meet Wendy.

Doesn’t Hattingdon’s hat look tasty and just right for the day?

It’s not too late to celebrate. Almost all the fast food chains are still having cheeseburger specials.

Hugs and kisses, and millinery blisses.

P.S. Can you believe our last post was in July 2020? Hopefully we will do much, much better in future.

Simone

Inspired by one of the 2020 summer season’s hottest colours, here’s Hattingdon modeling her most recent hat, done in a gloriously chic saffron yellow, embellished with hand stitching and a fashionably large all white-butterfly. Hattingdon named this new hat Simone. Enjoy!

Hugs and kisses, and millinery blisses.
