So in my mind's eye this girl has rescued her grandfather's old green felt hat from the garbage because she always pictures him wearing it.
Over time the brim has become floppy and the hat misshapen but with the addition of a pink flower she feels beautiful honoring his memory.
Are you a hat person?
Hats scare me because they make people look at you and I am the type of person that does not like to draw attention to herself in public.
A hat seems to bring with it a certain responsibility that I'm not sure that I'm up to - however, one weekend several years ago we were visiting Charleston with my parents. My mom talked me into purchasing a floppy straw hat that I happily wore all day.
It was super cute and I have lots of pics of me wearing it that day but I've never worn it again. Perhaps the anonymity of being where nobody knew me allowed me to relax and step out of my box.
Linking to Paint Party Friday,
