Silly Hat Party

This past friday we had some people over to celebrate my impending birthday by wearing silly hats.

I made and wore the following:

It was a really fun night. The hats were indeed silly. We had a craft area where people embellished their chapeaux all evening, and that is how my seagull hat ended up wearing a hat of its own. And the dangling fish. And then I made a little paper party hat for my hat’s hat, but I have no photographic evidence of this… πŸ™‚

Here he is sans hat(s):

It was a very fun sculptural project! I used scraps of wool melton from the production process at Wildhagen. Obviously I have been somewhat influenced by working at a hat shop! Got hats on the brain. (Literally. haha.)

Mr. Seagull’s good friend from montreal was in town this weekend too.

We went out for diner breakfast, and burritos, and pie (all on the same day!), and it was lovely to see him.

Now that the party is over and all the friends have left again, Mr. Seagull is a bit sad.

He sat and looked out the window today at the snow falling and missed the ocean.
