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”.
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.
