A day of Easter hat making

Hello everyone! Long time no blog...sorry for that.

We had a wonderful time today creating gorgeous Easter hats for Amelia's school annual "Easter Hat Parade". I invited a few of her little friends for a day of crafting and fun. Some of the mummies stayed too and we had a lovely time watching all the children letting their creativity loose...They're rather talented little tykes :)

This was created by the lovely Mackinley.  A gorgeous little girl who aspires to be an artist...I think she's already there.

Miss Ella's hat. I love it!!!

My baby :) She's so tired but had the loveliest time.

I love Easter hat parades. I remember them well from my days at school. We had the best principal. His name was Mr Barton and he would dress up every year in a blue bunny suit and hop along giving all the children an easter egg. I even remember walking in on him in his office, wearing the suit while his secretary Mrs Butler was sewing on his tail (and yes I'm sure that is what was happening....she was pinning it on). I love that I hold wonderful memories from my time at school. He contributed so much to my happiness as a child. 

The highlight for all the children today was of course my little kitten, who finally has a name....Geppetto!

Enjoy your evening folks! I'll be spending mine with some chocolate and "Midsummer Murders". Oh yes, I like to live on the wild side.

How absolutely beautiful Alisa! All the hats look so wonderful and colourful and very Easter-y. I'm sure all the little girls will remember this day for a long time to come. How magical!

Hi there, thanks for visiting my blog. I hope I am doing your lovely town justice, As an outsider I am always a little concerned that my observations might not be correct, but I do love discovering country towns.

I LOVE making Easter hats! I think I enjoy it even more than the children.

And that is the sweetest story about your principal. Teachers like that are pure gold.
