Bathing Caps and Bathing Beauties

The mornings are now chilly here in Nova Scotia. It still warms up pretty quickly, but summer's days are numbered. My table at the farmers' market is now filled mostly with fleece hats. Many of my new styles for 2010 were inspired by my friend Katja's bathing cap cosmetic bags. Check out her fabulous collection by clicking here

They really are incredible cosmetic bags. If like me you always manage to spill the conditioner or toothpaste while traveling, then this is the bag for you. Being a bathing cap, you just throw it in the sink and you are good to go. But I digress. The reason I'm showing you these bags is because after staring at them for a year I realized that the shape would make a great fleece hat. Then I got a little carried away and ended up with several versions. I couldn't pick a favourite child, so I just kept them all. You can pick your own favourite (or not), but I'm their mother and it wouldn't be right.

They are up on my website which you can see by clicking here as well as on my etsy site which you can see by clicking here.
That's really enough about winter hats. With about three weeks left till the first day of school we headed once again to our new favourite spot, Beck's Lake. If you live around here and want to know how to get there just ask. It's the main teenage hangout, but those big kids can be quite inspiring to my little kid.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer. We're definitely enjoying ours.

Gorgeous hats - as usual. I don't know which I like best, either. They're all beautiful!
