Project Cubbins: Hat 483 -- Daisy-Sprouting Bowler Edition

Day 483 / Hat 483: Red felt bowler with rainbow hatband detail and fabric daisy with green-and-white-striped fuzzy pipe cleaner stem sprouting from top of crown.

The second of two hats loaned to the Project by Amy Novak and her daughter (the first was PC 481) and Amy say this was sent to girl child as a "an early birthday present from her grandparents." 

Which makes it a more than appropriate hat to close out one of my own years and welcome another. 

Here's hoping everything sprouts as joyfully as a cartoon daisy in the year ahead!

A sincere hat-tip to Amy and daughter. Thanks for the loan - your hats will be enroute back to you shortly.

PC 383: Zebra Bucket
PC 295: Shamrock Shaker

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 celebrated 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.
