I just couldn't help myself. I had to get it.

Ya'll ever get something in your head and you can't quit thinking about it?

It seems like forever that I have been thinking about a hat. Not just any hat, but a hat that I could wear when I do art shows. Not that one needs a hat to participate in an art show, but with a goofy personality like mine, a hat just kinda fits.

So in my little o'l pea brain, I invisioned a top hat. A velvety top hat with a fun shape. Of course, it would have to be kid size to fit me. Then...

it would need bunny ears! I mean you can't be the owner of The Raspberry Rabbits and make rabbit art without having a hat with bunny ears! It would be wrong on so many levels. hee,hee,hee. (that saying cracks me up!)

Well, things have a way of coming to me when I think about them a lot. Low and behold, the perfect hat to wear in my booth. I got it from a costume place that had Alice in Wonderland stuff. Too cool!

David thinks I'm an incredible dorkwad and is debating whether or not he is going to be seen with me help me, at the show if I wear this hat.

But then, he did say I look pretty cute, so I'm guessing he'll get over the embarrassment and just run with it. After all, being married to a crazy bunny lady is rather fun. Besides, he know's I just couldn't help myself and I had to get it.

Have a fun day and don't forget to sign up for the giveaway this Friday!! Sign up Here!

Oh Shell! It is just delightful! Perfect for you and your booth. You'll attract tons of people. Your pictures are too funny! Especially with the necklace and the jacket. You should have paper cups and a urn of tea to hand out at the show, just perfect! Maybe with some biscuits?
