Project Cubbins: Hat 237 - Tiny Toque Edition
Day 237 / Hat 237: Folded miniature paper chef's toque blanche with elastic cord. It's the second of the six NPW "Mini Party Hats" from the Christmas elf bag from my sainted mother to appear in the Project so far -- the first was PC 215: A Fez for Ants.
I've included an image of the Mini Party Hats above right and I have to say and I think I'm rocking the tiny toque way better than that Chihuahua.
PC 236: Tubeteika Topper
PC 235: Fly Like an Eagle
PC 217: Toque Times Two
Q: OK, nice hat -- but what exactly is Project Cubbins, anyway?
A: One man's homage to Dr. Seuss and his second book, "The 500 Hats of Bartholemew Cubbins," which is celebrating the 75th anniversary of its publication in 2013, Project Cubbins is an attempt to document the wearing of a different hat or piece of headgear every day for 500 consecutive days. No do-aheads, no banking of hats, no retroactive entries. PC started on May 27, 2013 with Hat 1.
Got hats? If you loan 'em, you'll get e'm back safe and sound!
