a hat!

i've been meaning to show off the hat that i got from Littlebyrdvintage awhile ago, but since it hasn't been too cold yet, i kept forgetting.

however, the weather here turned sharply colder overnight and the trees are becoming more and more bare, and before we know it, it will be snowing! and while i'll still hold on to Fall for a little while longer, i believe i will be wearing my new hat in the coming week...winter or not!



i love this hat! (you can click on the photo for a better view) Rebekah of Littlebyrdvintage is so talented! she upcycles old sweaters into these wonderful flapper style hats. (she also make some amazing fingerless mittens, but i'll save that for another post!)

mine is made from a grey cashmere sweater and it is so very soft!

and i love the way it looks with my newly thrifted sweater that i found at Plato's Closet...one of the few non overly teenagey things i've found there.

sorry for the grainy picture quality here. chalk it up to the aged mirror, poor lighting, and my limited photography skills. let's just pretend i antiqued it, okay?

p.s. the clump of black fur to the left behind me would be Gimli. he hangs out on those suitcases whenever i'm in the bedroom. the funny thing is, the green one that he lays on is tapered, but he seems unaffected by it. weird cat.

I have one too and love it dearly. Along with her mittens. Yours looks rather fabulous with that ruffled buttony magical sweater. (buttony is a word. I just invented it.) Hope all's well. :)
p.s. love those wonderballs. when we get back from vacation I'll have to snag one.
