Hello everyone out there

It’s July already and time for another Hat Attack hosted by the wonderful Judith Boyd.  I so enjoy this partnership with hat loving people around the world!

OK, this hat was bought last year in Tallinn, Estonia in a delightful little shop, in the old part of the city, that was full of hand-crafted hats.  I don’t know if you have been to Tallinn, but it’s so beautiful, and I highly recommend a visit.

Hat bought in Tallinn

The weather here in the UK is quite hot (for the UK, that is) and I have a problem with hats in hot weather, because I have really thick hair, which is great, of course, particularly at my age.  But I have to be so careful when I buy sun hats, as they can make me feel even hotter if they’re heavy or made of thick material – even some straw hats make me feel hot.  But this hat is made of a lightweight natural cotton material with a gold thread woven through it.  And it’s cool to wear.


What I remember most about Tallinn was how cold it was!  In two days we went from 30C (84F) in St. Petersburg to 8C (46F) in Tallinn, oooof, that icy wind!

But please, don’t let that put you of going there. This was on last year’s cruise (in May) and I’d taken clothes for all weathers, so I just dressed up in my winter woollies and was fine!


To be quite honest it’s my idea of heaven to be cool in the summer.  I’m someone who was thrilled to bits when it snowed on my trip to Norway, and that was in early September!

Until next month!

    I LOVE this hat that you found in Estonia! How I would love to check out the shop filled with hand-crafted headwear. I adore the camera shot and so enjoy your nail color. Thank you so much for sharing with Hat Attack!

      Thank you, Judith, for giving us the opportunity to share. I love Hat Attack and have found some interesting bloggers through it. And I love showing off my hats – still several more to go and now I’m always on the lookout for more hats! Many thanks to you again.
