And I tackled Middle's room.

What about packing?
I've started, finally...

green

Of course I kept moaning about my missing hat.
I whined whilst ironing.
I kvetched whilst folding clothes.
I looked at EVERY HAT ON THE ENTIRE INTERNET.

Finally, I shut up about it and started putting things in the suitcases.
And when I unzipped my case, what do you think I found?

found

Now I can go away.

Glad you found your hat.

The straw one rocks. I'm also digging the green one with the arrow thingy coming out of it.

I did the same thing with an earring last year. Tore apart the house, the car, my kids (not really, but they do "borrow" things). Found it in my carry-on three months later. You know how sometimes you need to have a party to get off your ass and really clean you house? I think when you lose something you love/need you should take a vacation.

Almost better than finding a $20 in your coat pocket when you wear it for the first time after a season.
I'm strangely kind of loving the isabella blow green felt, take your eye out number, NOT that I would ever actually wear it.

I'm glad you found it! That bodes well for your trip. I also lost my favorite hat but found it after returning home.

Hooray! Few things top finding mysteriously long-lost favorite items. Items that would be impossible to replace.

And it is such a perfect hat.

Glad you found it! Though we will miss you while you are away. WIll you posting updates while en Italia?

My mother found her wedding ring in the henhouse after three years. That was a good moment in our family history.

That green hat would be so useful for travelling - you could use it to keep all your travel documents in one place if you make a hole in one corner of each ticket etc.

I LOVE those 1930s meet 21st century felted numbers. I bet you'd look good in one . . .

Well, halleluiah. Although I'm sure you would have found a buon capello in bella Italia. Maybe not as cute as the phallic Robin Hood number, but cute nonetheless.

Further proof that there is a God.

I agree with tut-tut. So Myrna Loy! But yet, so modern!

I'm glad you found your hat, though. Nothing makes me crazier than losing my favorite ______ unless it's spilling tomato sauce down the front of a white shirt.

My best friend from work, who reads the blog, has the same hat, a freebee from MS with something, she's glad you found yours, but would you like a backup?

i'm so glad you found it, i was wondering. i have a helen kaminski (well, i have two, but never mind that) that i spent a fortune for, but i love it. and living in arizona, you need a good crushable straw hat.

That is sooo coool. (too bad all the angst - oh well it happens). Funny, that has happened to me. And I sooo hate when i misplace something.

Shazam! Cute hat!

I'm still hoping for the wonderful vintage hats to make a come back someday soon. The ones you pin on and the ones with the netting and the flapper style bucket hats... wouldn't that be grand?

I LOVE hats.

I'm soooooo glad you found it. :)

I did that with a sock once. A single sock. But I really liked those socks. So I hung onto the one, hoping the other would turn up. Found it in a suitcase months later!

I like those felt hats. Not that I would wear them, but I like to look at them.

Oh Hurray for you!

How wonderful.

And adding on the mscellania: That God's common grace abounds.

I was rather distressed for you about your hat. How awesome for you. Although the hat with the big black band looks kinda neat, too.

Who is the patron saint of lost things?? St.Jude? I have no idea, but you should send him a thank you post-haste.
Miz S said…
Thank God. I was worried. When are you actually leaving? Soon-ish, I think. This weekend?
MizMell said…
Bon voyage!

Take lots of pictures for all of poor souls who aren't going to Italy.
Irene said…
I. AM. SO. GLAD.
Jody said…
I am so happy that you found your hat!!!! (So happy that I am commenting for the first time. We've emailed about a song, but no comments yet.) Finding the hat is a good sign of more good things to come. Bon Voyage!

The green and blue chapeaux look like something out of a Maira Kalman illustration.
Have a wonderful, wonderful time!! I'll be thinking of you.
