Hey there, hello and how are you?
We are all abuzz — so to speak — about this new hat.
Mrs Farrell, Hattingdon’s hatmaker, created a simple fashion hat with layered shapes in basic black. Simple with no mane. After she looked at it a bit she decided it had “a sort of beehive sort of thing going on”.
So she named the hat Honey (ha ha ha). You will see that Mrs Farrell made bees to go with it. Even better! Oh, her version of a bee, she hastily points out. We fell in love with them.
Look. They’re buzzing around Hattingdon! They seem to think Hattingdon’s Honey hat looks a bit beehive-ish too.
This hat put Mrs Farrell in mind of that great Bette Davis quote about being busy little bees from All About Eve.
“We’re all busy little bees, full of stings, making honey day and night, aren’t we honey?”
Here’s a grand clip from one of the great movie classics of all time — some argue the very best — which includes this famous quote. We don’t know about that but it is stellar. One thing is for sure. Nobody does it like Bette!
Thanks everyone. Hope it brought a “hatful of smiles”!
P.S. We love Robbie Yates. He wrote a darling poem called “Honey”. Go there now »
