Hats, Hats and more Hats!

First of all, I thought you might enjoy a little “HAT” trivia:
DID YOU KNOW…

* White tall chef hats traditionally have 100 pleats to represent hundreds of ways an egg can be prepared.

* In the middle of the 19th century, baseball umpires wore top hats during the game.

* The process of making felt involves the use of mercury which is toxic and prolonged exposure use can cause damage in nervous system, tremors and dementia. From that originates the phrase “Mad as a hatter”.

* In America, in the 1920s, there was an odd custom that was common, if people wore straw hats after the 15th of September they were beaten up.

* French Magician Louis Comte was the first to pull out a rabbit from a top hat in 1814.

* Colors of hard hats can have meaning and are used to distinguish roles on the construction sites and for safety. White hard hats are worn by supervisors or engineers, blue – technical advisers. Safety inspectors wear green hard hats. Yellow hard hats are worn by laborers while orange or pink hats are reserved for new workers or visitors.

Hats aren’t as commonly worn as they were years ago… Well, that’s not so true among the dolly world. I think a hat makes an outfit and I know lots of buyers of doll dresses who agree with me. There is the occasional doll of mine who prefers hair bows; but maybe we’ll talk about them in a later post. I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite doll hats. To me, the prettier the better… hope you agree!

  2. Jeanne: Do we get to vote? Cause my fav is the hounds tooth newsboy cap…in fact that entire outfit has always been one of my favorites…and then who could resist the polka dot red hat worn by Kish Riley

    • Jeanne W says:

      Good morning Trish,
      I was going to ask the question at the end, “Which hat is your favorite?” but forgot… I just now edited my post, so now “Let the voting begin…”
      I always liked that little pink and black outfit too…. it was so “out of the ordinary” for my style, but something about it was fun!
      Blessings, Jeanne

  3. I agree, Jeanne. I love hats on dolls.
