Inpire Me Thursday: Hats Off!


This week at Inspire Me Thursday we are prompted to put on our creative caps and be inspired by...HATS! "Make a hat, alter a hat, draw a hat, paint a hat, or whatever else your creative genius may conjure up."
.
I immediately thought of the fun, easy, breezy hats I love to wear during the summer...and while on vacation in sunny places. This photo was taken not that long ago while in Jamaica with friends...in Ocho Rios to be exact. That's me in the floppy hat and jeans shorts, and Deb in black wearing her very cool baseball cap. Boy did we all have fun on that trip! One reason I like summer hats is because they help shield us a bit from the hot sun**. And, I don't know why but wearing summer hats stirs up fun, freedom and yes...playfulness within me. So, here's "hats off" to all three...and to you too!

**I must share this healthful tip with you in case you want to give it a try...plus, you know I can't keep good stuff to myself! (You can click on the purple text, which is linked to the site) -- As you know hats don't protect us from the harmful UVA and UVB rays from the sun, but MelanSol® 100% Natural Sunscreen does. And better yet, MelanSol® does NOT contain any of the harmful cancer-causing chemicals that are present in many (if not all) of the popular, mainstream sunscreens. A bonus is that I'm enjoying its anti-aging benefits, and since the sun's harmful rays are ever-present rain, overcast or shine, I now use it as my year round facial moisturizer. My skin has a healthier glow and I feel good that I'm providing natural, healthy nourishment for it. Others notice too, as I frequently receive compliments! Most important, MelanSol® is one more essential ingredient I've added to my recipe for healthy living. ~ It's primarily available online at the offical MelanSol® website from which you can receive a free sample here. "Hat's off" to enjoying the sun, safely.

I never wear hats, I said in my post, but when I think about it, I wear hats in summer too.
Only in summer.
Nice this one.

What a lovely memory! I found a pattern for a big floppy hat when I was searching for the hat I made. It's now on my to-do list. Sigh....

Thanks for your sweet comments, Cheryl. I LOVE hats - I don't look particularly great in them, but sometimes I just don't care. Hey, did you and your friends charter sailboats while on that trip?

Beautiful photo.

Cheryl said...

Cheryl, that looks like paradise! And thanks for the info on Melansol -- it's never too late to start taking better care of ourselves. I even wear hats now, although they're not very flattering on me!
