Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Hats

Hat’s Galore

Naomi gave me some new Barbie outfits for my birthday and this is one of them. Below, another Barbie in a hat. If you played Barbie in the 80s or had children who did you might recognise this outfit belonging to Day To Night Barbie (1985). Last in my dolls in hats section is Minerva McGonagall.

The Red Hat Society is an international organisation mainly aimed at women 50 or older although I’m sure they would not turn away anyone who loves to wear a red hat. These ladies were marching in the Hobart Christmas Pageant a few years ago. Also on the subject of Christmas, the wooden statues in Geeveston are often dressed up in Santa hats in December.

Vintage hats are part of a great display in a shop in Napier, New Zealand.

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.
