Unusual Hats.

Just for fun: serious-looking people with animals on their heads. Brings a whole new meaning to wearing fur.

Any plans this weekend? I'll be working on a new story for the upcoming issue of Rue (very excited!), and, at some point, attempting to make these with a friend (again, very excited!). Wishing you all a wonderful, warm weekend whatever your plans!

  9. these are amazing. my cat used to sleep on my head. he'd crawl up on my pillow at night and plop down on my head with his tail always creeping over to tickle D's face. the head-snuggling i didn't mind so much - but the purrrrring was like trying to sleep under a tractor!

  10. Those are wacky...but cool...but also wacky.
    Have a great weekend!

  11. Erin, thank you so much! I can't wait to give that a listen!

  13. This reminds me of the guy who walks around downtown with a cat on his head?? have you seen him? he is pretty much a staple down here. The cat is always so nicely perched. bella will sleep on your head when you are sleeping, too. best hat ever. Love this post!
