Time for the hat room transition when The Style Crone pulls the spring/summer hats out of their beautifully boxed hibernation, cleans the fall/winter line, and puts them to sleep in their tissue paper and boxes to rest until the next seasonal change in September. This is a twice yearly ritual and it’s a delight to reacquaint myself with each and every ‘sleeping beauty.’ In celebration of the conversion this vintage pink felt hat with navy burnt ostrich feathers and veil was too seductive to ignore and landed on The SC’s head before slipping softly away into its spring/summer retreat. Nothing like wearing an evening hat on a Tuesday afternoon with a navy turtleneck for self entertainment and fun.
Nelson’s status has stabilized with hospice meds and I can feel it in my energy level and my comfort with leaving home for errands without anxiety. Another ‘sweet spot in time’ is upon us and I’m looking forward to Nelson bringing out his substantial collection of spring hats too. The hats for the ‘date days’ that are surely in our future!
