Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge -Hats


I chose an old photo for this challenge. One of my Flickr albums is called “Pink Is Not My Favourite Colour”. It’s a bit of a joke title because of my frequent complaints about how it’s assumed that all women and girls want everything pink. I do like pink in nature but I rarely wear it. I could however, appreciate this display of pink hats I saw at Salamanca Market one sunny day.

However, I then realised that I had used it before for the “Pink” challenge some time ago. Not wanting to be a lazy poster here are some more hats. My Sweet Sue doll received this outfit complete with elaborate hat after I found it at the Doll Show.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
