Ten happy making hats in orange

Updated 10/8 12:15 pm

THE colour orange is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. It is highly accepted among young people.

Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation. Orange is the colour of adventure; it is optimistic, sociable and extroverted. See [1].


“Orange is the happiest colour.”

“I always bring an orange scarf, not just so I can wear it or tuck it into my pocket, but also so I can throw it over a lamp in the hotel room. Orange is my favourite colour, and it gives a lovely, warm ambience.”

— RuPaul

Okay, Candie’s not exactly an orange hat but it has orange in the trim. It being Fall and with Halloween, well you understand.

Electra Chandelier Hat

We all went crazy over Hattingdon’s lampshade inspired hats this year. This is the chandelier version. What a sense of humour Mrs Farrell has.

Dee Dee Donut Hat

Mrs Farrell has had a lifelong love for Dunkin Donuts and it shows here in this darling open crown hat she created for National Doughnut Day, June 1st, 2018.

Hallie Mini Puffy Hat

Hold on a minute. On the Hallie brim — are those like eyeballs? Or cocktail olives? Ha ha ha!

Mrs Farrell doesn’t remember making this hat, but quite sure it is an unfinished item. She thinks it may have started out as some sort of Halloween hat, but she got sidetracked and never got back to it. Yes, she says, those are screwed eyeballs which makes her laugh out loud.

Mia Bucket Hat

Created by ©Vivian Grant Farrell exclusively for Hattingdon® cartoon horses.

The “Mia” bucket hats were all the rage a few years ago but are now retired. This is sooooo jaunty. Orange isn’t for shrinking violets is it?

Pippa Fashion Hat

Created by ©Vivian Grant Farrell exclusively for Hattingdon® cartoon horses.

Rarely does Hattingdon look prettier than in her Pippa hat. We love, love, love it. Originally in pure red, orange really gives it that extra zip.

So, how are you, after looking at all that orange? We hope you are feeling upbeat, joyful, energized, warm (as in “and fuzzy”) and ready to take on the world, or your corner of it anyway.

See you again soon. Love ya bunches. ♥ ♥ ♥
