Happy New Year, Everyone!
Who is the lovely girl, you ask?
That’s Elly, my grandniece! She’s pretty as a picture wearing the “messy ponytail hat” crocheted by her grandma, my sister Pauline.
Those of you who have followed my blog for a long time and who read comments have met my vivacious, dear sister, Pauline.
Pauline lives with her husband Jerold in northeastern Mississippi. An adult daughter and an adult son, their spouses, and three grandchildren, all live nearby.
Good people, all of them.
Okay, about the hats . . . .
Hand-crocheted, messy bun/ponytail hats!
The hats are a sensation and Pauline is a crocheting phenomenon these days!
She started making the hats a few weeks before Christmas. Once people saw these flattering hats keep your head warm while your hair is in a ponytail or bun, well, they wanted them!
I imagine the hats do a good job of concealing “bad hair” and “bed hair,” too.
Want to order a hat for yourself or for a gift?
Pauline says you can order any color you wish and if you want your hat striped, she can do that for you, too!
The solid color hats are $18 each. That includes the cost of shipping the hat to you.
The striped hats are $20, shipping included.
Pauline has received orders for striped hats in the colors of sports teams.
As for me, I’m placing an order for a medium gray. The hat will keep my hair from blowing in my eyes when walking with Reggie on breezy, chilly winter days.
TO ORDER HATS: Contact Pauline at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let her know how many you want and what your color choices are. One size fits all. Her usual turn-around time, from receiving payment to shipping the hat, is 42-78 hours (although that may change if she receives a lot of orders. The woman has to sleep sometime! Haha!).
If a ponytail hat isn’t for you but you like handmade crocheted items, visit Pauline’s Facebook page, “Nana’s Off The Hook.” The selection and variety of colors are astounding! Her products support the trip to New York City (from Mississippi) she promised to Elly for a high school graduation gift.
On behalf of Pauline, thank you in advance for your order! — Sue
ALSO, THANK YOU FOR SHOPPING AMAZON FROM MY BLOG!
Dang, we’re starting the new year off with commercials! We’ll return to our regular programming in the next post! Promise!
