My Next Hat







Last Friday Dusty had his first class field trip. I took the day off of hatting and went for the ride. We went to the farm of Dusty's best friend, Beaux. Well, really it's his mom Faye that does all the work. The farm is called Silver Lane Farm . Faye, pretty much single handedly, raises heritage birds. She also has a five year old human, a baby human, a few pigs, sheep and goats. When we arrived we were greeted by Wyatt the Turkey. Although he did his best to impress us by circling us, spreading and rattling his feathers at us and displaying that oddness hanging from his beak and neck (which apparently drives the lady turkeys wild) I remained most unimpressed. The only thought that kept circulating in my head was, nice hat. Wyatt's life will be spared for some time because, lucky guy, he has been designated as The Breeder. But, Faye has promised me that when his time comes to be Thanksgiving dinner I will get some of his spectacular feathers. Wyatt was quite the host always managing to be extremely present at all the fun activities that Faye organized. The egg races were quite a hit. Dusty is third from the left in the line up. Note the hand on the egg. Such a cheater. Don't know where he gets it from. Must be from Tony's side. We also got to pet a one week old goat. So adorable. It was really a fun day.

So glad you had a great time at the Silver Lane Farm! And to think you got inspiration for new hats too!! I'm sure Dusty loved having his Mom there to share in the field trip. On another note--new you would love the gift wrapping paper over at A Gift Wrapped Life! Fashion is all about the hats!! Brigitte
