A Hat Cache

I recently discovered we have a hat cache around this house. Most of these are readily accessible; some reside on the upper shelf in a closet. But as I was writing this blog entry, it occurred to me to do an arrangement of hats on a short wall in the computer room. It just might look good; then again, it might not.

This is my favorite hat to grab before going out the door to do gardening, yard work, walking the dogs, or doing any kind of work outside. I call it my bush hat.

These I grab on bad hair days when I have to run a quick errand into Dripping or Austin.

I love the black, floppy, felt hat but do not wear it very often. I think I'll change that. The straw is for wearing in the summer when going to the farmers' market.

The fur hat is for those extra cold days when a lot of outside walking is to be done. The red cowboy hat has only been worn once of twice, but it will not be thrown away. The small straw hat looks great with any kind of outfit. I wore it with everything when I did not have much hair after the chemo. The big straw hat is for going to Fredericksburg Trade Days in the summer.

A few more baseball hats for bad hair days when I cannot find the others.

Thought I'd throw in a few of hubby's hats. Not sure how he decides which one to wear except the orange Texas hat which is always worn during football season. :D

When we owned a fitness center in Austin, hubby always wore this hat. Everyone loved it and he received many compliments on it. It has a special place in our living area -- hangs on a kitchen cabinet that faces out into the living area.

Do you have a cache? If so, what is it? Is it on display somewhere in your house?

Until next time, God bless.

That's quite a collection of hats Lynn. With the heat you have in the summer those big brims would certainly come in handy. Your bush hat is my favorite.

I'll have to think about my cache, there are probably several but I can't think of anything at the moment.

That is quite a collection of hats. I have a few, but never wear them. Mine are mostly baseball caps. You have a nice variety of styles.

What a great collection! We have a lot of ball hats to wear outside when we tend to gardening and mowing activities. We also have a few tilley hats which we take with us on vacations.

I have a sparkly hat like that purple one, except mine is blue. Great hats! I also have a lot I don't wear, but it's nice to have them just in case.
