The Happy Hatter - I Heart Faces contest

I caught this sweet capture of my new baby girl last week. She just turned two months. I can just eat her up. Yummm...

Isn't the hat darling? I just love it. You can find a link to the seller (very reasonably priced, I may add) in my last blog entry under the title 'If the Hat Fits'.

If you have a image of a child in a hat, post it at the "I Heart Faces" website's weekly contest and join the fun!

Yay! This photo placed in the top ten for this contest and received an "honorable mention."

If the Hat Fits.... - Photography Props

I have a secret...well she was my best kept secret until now.

Many of you have asked about the hats that are featured on my web site and I have come to the conclusion that I will have to share my source.

Recently I had the great fortune of coming across a photographer's dream. A woman named Jackie who creates couture hats. Her creations have a way of making you 'awww' and giggle out loud. Fun and fanciful!

The hats are reasonable priced (starting at $8 and up). The great thing about her creations are that no two hats are alike, which I personally love. You get an original, unique piece each time. The beanies are my personal fave's. They fit nice and snug on a baby.
What's also great is that most of her creations are hand sewn on (with exception to a few). This means that you can take the design (at a later date) and switch it to another hat to fit a toddler.

Jackie's new 'baby prop' line is called "Springtime Annie" and you can find her designer creations on her Etsy store front "If The Hat Fits" (web address to follow).

What's also nice is that Jackie will customize your order to your specifications. Do you have a favorite dress, tutu or petti that you need a hat for? She's your woman. The hat's would be adorable for a birthday girl, holiday or photo shoot.

The great news is my readers will receive a special 15% discount off her already low prices. Just mention the code word "Happy Hatter" in your convo to her before purchase.

Below are some images of her creations, which don't even do them justice! Check her out and let me know what you think in the comment section.
