Cee Cee

Hello there.

We love 60s fashion. What a groovy and imaginative time. It has definitely inspired what you are about to see — the charming and brand new — Cee Cee Collection.

“When I think 60s fashion,” states Hattingdon creator and designer, Vivian Grant, “I think supermodel Jean Shrimpton. I remember her wearing a fabulous hat (as only she could) with a very tall, oval shaped dome, and a small, round brim. It was sublime. This is what inspired me to create the Cee Cee Hat Collection. Naturally it comes in a wide variety of delicious colors. Hope you love them.”

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.

Savannah Hattingdon.

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.

7 Hats of Christmas: Day 5

The name “Christmas pudding” is first recorded in 1858 in a novel by Anthony Trollope.

Christmas pudding (or plum pudding) is sweet dried-fruit pudding traditionally served as part of Christmas dinner in Britain and other countries to which the tradition has been exported. Therefore this includes United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, and the Caribbean.

Plum Hattingdon

What is a Plum Pudding?

Plum pudding is usually made up of nutmeg, raisins, nuts, apples, cinnamon, and dates, along with other ingredients.  In England, traditionally every person in the home holds onto the wooden spoon together to help stir the batter. While they are stirring, they also make a wish!  

Plum pudding is also called plum duff.

Flashback Bubbles


We received emails recently asking why we have not been posting some of the earliest Hattingdon cartoons on Fridays like we used to.

We used to post them on what we called “Flashback Friday”. But there was very little traffic. We were hardly reaching anyone. Let’s see what happens today.

Do we ever have a flashback for you. This is one of the earliest Hattingdons Vivian created. She got the inspiration literally while taking a bath. The bubble bath she used at the time came in a big pink plastic bottle. And from that she created “Bubbles”.

Isn’t she sweet?

Thanks for stopping by. See you again soon.

Sweet, sunny Solana

Back in 2015, a charming ladies’ gardening club based in Atlanta asked Vivian to create a Hattingdon just for them. She did, and named the design Solana. We had tee shirts made for them, tote bags, greeting cards and mugs. Here she is.

Solana Hattingdon.

Solana is a girl’s name of Spanish origin meaning “sunshine”.

By the way, this darling, sunny hat puts us in mind of that George and Ira Gershwin, Heyward Du Bose song — “Summertime”.

And the livin’ is easy
Fish are jumpin’
And the cotton is high
Oh, your daddy’s rich
And your ma’ is good lookin’
So hush
Little baby
Don’t you cry

Summertime lyrics © Nokawi Music. Sung by Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald.

It is nice to see you here. Come back and see us again soon!
