Theme Thursday-Hats

When it comes to buying a hat, size does matter. Found this contraption in an antique western wear store in Taos, New Mexico.
It was used to measure cowboys' and yes, cowgirls' heads for custom made hats. Turns out that I am a 7 1/4 --a large head for a cowgirl, I was told.
Something tells me that Georgia had a large head too and didn't much care. I am going to get me a hat just like Georgia's when I move to New Mexico with my darlin' Mr. Jackson.

It is that time again--Theme Thursday is here and it is about hats--take a look and try one on here!

Well, they done tole me I was a pinhead for being a 6 7/8.

I thought it was kind of a cool number, actually.

That hat measurer looks like a torture helmet. I think they once put spikes inside them!

With so many varied states-of-mine inside you, it's no surprise you're a bit bigheaded. Happy TT, CM.
