Lights on with Cara

Greetings and welcome. We are “lights on” with this collection of gorgeous Cara lampshade hats. The silhouette of this hat is oh so stylish, and Hattingdon looks oh so darling.

The Cara hat comes in five luscious hues. Let’s take a look.

We love them all, but are especially in love with the minty green. What do you think? Which is your favorite?

Who knew when Mrs Farrell made Cara we would end up with five distinctive styles of lampshade inspired hats. Will there be any more? It will be interesting to see.

Hugs and kisses, and millinery blisses to you all.

P.S. Attention Classic Hat Fans. Mrs Farrell has created a lovely new classic hat. It will debut here on Thursday, March 21st! She has also made a new hat to celebrate Spring Equinox, tomorrow, Wednesday, March 20th.

Lumina

Greetings from all of us to all of you!

Hattingdon has a huge fan named Dan. He has been with Hattingdon from day one.

When Mrs Farrell made her first lampshade hat — Cara — Dan fell in love with the hat and the concept. He is the one who keeps urging her to make more, and to oblige him she has done so.

So far we have had Cara, Electra and Filamena. And now we have a brand new one which Dan named Lumina.

Lumina comes in three colour types and decoration.

Cara in black

Hey there. January 2019 is almost done. How has it been for you so far?

Come to find out Hattingdon is on a cruise. A very long cruise. She packed up her hats and went sailing.

We’ve been busy in her absence though.

A dear friend of Hattingdon’s who loves the Cara lampshade hat wanted it in black. So Mrs Farrell made it up for her. Of course, the hat being solid black was fetching, but not particularly festive. So she embellished it with some golden stars. Darling! Take a look.

So, what do you think? We hope it has brightened your day and given you a Hatful of Smiles™!

See you again soon. Hugs.
