Have you seen great hats like this? I have. And I immediately think when I see 'em, "I can't pull that off".

I'm still not sure how I managed to get this hat? Rhea over at TexasWordTangle, (is that the best name for a blog or what?) was having a great contest giveaway. (This hat was part of it!) She had a whole assorted set of stuff to give away. Hers happened to take place during the same time I was having my first contest. I entered her contest and did not win. She entered my contest and DID!

I was joking with her about finding out that some people will not give out mailing addresses, even when they win a contest (why do they enter I was wondering). I asked if she was going to be that kind of winner? (No, I sent her the bag) Turns out one of her winners didn't respond or wouldn't give out their address... I whined a little that sheesh, I really wanted one of those GREAT PINK HATS! And she was all, sure why not, I have an extra one anyway.

And via the great postal system, our two contests passed in the night. She ended up with a great pink silk tote, and I with this cool hat.

What do you think? Can I pull it off? Yee-Haw! And all that?

I think everyone looks FabUlous in a hat... no matter what anyone may say! More folks need to wear'em. Hats are cool, even pink cowboy hats :)

a blog-related question for you - I was wondering how bloggers can afford to give away such extravagant prizes? For example, yesterday pioneer woman gave away three $250 target cards. And she often gives away digital cameras & photoshop, etc.... There's no way she's just buying these herself (she has four kids, after all) - so do bloggers have sponsors that donate things, or what?

I was just wondering.... and you're the only one that I know who would know!

Now you need the feather clips that were popular in the 80's to go with your hat. Go ahead and let your inner 80's self out.

Those hats are making a come back thanks to Jessica Simpson.

Great picture.

Awesome hat! I wish I had a face that looked good in hats.

Beth said...

I think the hat is great, pink is *obviously* the best color for a cowboy hat anyway.

Threeundertwo said...

Steph at Problem Solvin' Mom said...
