Witch Hat for Lexi

Boy, I have read a couple of blogs lately where people have written about some pretty serious stuff going on in their lives. I haven't commented on the blogs because I can't even imagine what I might say in one or two sentences that would make anyone feel better. I do keep those people in my thoughts and prayers. And having been there myself in one case, I really can say that tomorrow is better and each day after it gets a bit lighter and easier although the hurt never really ever goes away. Even though they are virtual scrapbooking friends, I really do care and hope things get better.

So, today, I thought I'd post something light and something small. It will make a small person smile when she gets home from her weekend at the Grandparents house. She had to have this hat a while back that we found at a local drug store that was going out of business.

I then found these huge blooms that you can pin onto something at another store and thought I'd bling up her hat just a bit. I added some cheese cloth that I inked with a lime green and sprayed with some homemade glimmermist to get the color to flow. Then I pinned on the three flowers and tied on my cheese cloth ribbon. It's so pretty! I am sure she will love it.

I'm not sure if they dress up in 5th Grade at this school or will even let them wear a hat but regardless I'll snap a few photo of her in it. I think the entire hat cost me less than $10 due to the flowers being on sale and the hat being discounted quite a bit due to the store closing.

And, do you see that pumpkin in the background that is orange! Not anymore! Shirley and I added a modge podge treatment! I will post that tomorrow!


  1. I know exactly what you mean Mitralee, what can one say in a few sentences!!
    I adore your witches hat!
    we do not celebrate Halloween here but we dress up for Madi Gras before lent....this hat would have been perfect for my witches outfit!!! LOL

  2. I can't wait to see pictures!!! This hat is the heat, chica! :D
    I know I'm gonna love that pumpkin too.
    Well done. Your post was very touching as well. You are truly a kind heart.

  3. Wow... I must not be reading the same blogs as you.... cause I haven't seen too many deep things lately... lol :):):)

    I loveeeeeeeeee the hat!! I loveeeeeeee how you added the trim to the brim of it and the flowers too! :):):):):):):):):):):)

  4. Love the flowers & the feathers! You know here Halloween is not a commercial occasion at all - in fact it is only celebrated by hardened Satanists (of which there is a community!) Yup seriously?! Because of that I find it very difficult to see all these lighthearted projects if you know what I mean (no offence meant!) as I know it's a HUGE American tradition and just a dress up fun day for the bulk of the population. It's been a black Monday indeed on more than one blog! For me it's been a great day though!! I've had 3 bits of fantastic news in one day!! BBM has been on the blink in Europe, Asia & Africa - the RIM server crashed - so I did send you a reply but it never went through!! HOpefully it'll be up & running soon but if you don't hear from me for a bit you know why - it's all over the news...

  5. I hope that you know how much I appreciate the comments you leave me and the fact that you read my blog even though it's not all sunshine and roses. I really am so glad that I've found our blog and become your virtual friend! (((Hugs!)))

    P.S. That witches hat is A-MAZING. You've seriously outdone yourself there! Awesome job! She will LOVE it to bits.

  6. Awesome witches hat, itstime like this I think it would be great to have Halloween.
