Project Cubbins: Hat 174 - Patched Irish Bucket Edition

Day 174 / Hat 174: Multi-colored patchwork wool bucket hat with cloth-covered button on top. Interior tag that reads: "Handcrafted exclusively by Hanna Hats of Donegal Ltd., Donegal Town Ireland, Dry Clean Only, Pure New Wool, Made in Ireland."

Borrowed from the Bride's extensive and colorful headwear collection, this hat was purchased during the same trip (and maybe even in the same store) as the Donegal tweed flat cap in PC 137 (aka "the Irish raincoat edition").

The one I'm sporting here is similar too - but much more colorful than - the example currently pictured at the Hanna Hats website.

Just sayin'.

PC 172: Fishy Friday
PC 131: Oui Oui, Paris!
PC 111: Whale of a Bucket Hat

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!
