This Blog is dedicated to Hattie the Traveling Hat and was suggested to me by Lady Chapeaux - Louise.
A Brief History of Hattie: In June 2001 a Red Hatter Queen named Janice from Illinois won an eBay bid for a 1950's red hat; which turned out to be an orange hat. The problem was quickly resolved when the seller sent this red hat free of charge, so Janice received two vintage hats for the price of one. This was the start of Hattie's new life in the Red Hat Society. After receiving a few new sparkles Hattie was ready for fun and adventure.

The URL consists of 15 pages that indicate where Hattie has been and where she is going. If you have the time, read pages 1-15.
I added two momentos from two of the many places that Hattie visited during the stay with me and my chapter, Hudson Valley Violets
(ID #34355) registered in Orange County, New York. The two momentos are on the back of Hattie at the top of the red floral decoration. They are:
The Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, Ulster County, New York and a West Point Military Academy Cadet representing the dining room at
The Thayer Hotel, West Point, Orange County, New York.
On Wednesday, March 21, 2007 Hattie arrived at my house and was sent to the next recipient on Thursday, September 13, 2007.
