Easter: Everything Nice


This is a super-close up shot of my daughter's Easter hat. She wouldn't leave it on, but my mother-in-law insisted that I let her buy it because it was so cute (it really is cute, and I do love it). Easter is (among other things) an excuse for little girls to get fancy new dresses, and I think it's a perfect day to wear a hat. I also kind-of think of Easter as a bit of a feminine holiday in general (religious associations aside), so I chose to focus on the "sugar and spice and everything nice" detail work of the eyelet on the hat.

Oh, I wish I could've seen the hat on your little girl! I was just thinking today how sad it is that no little girls wear easter hats anymore.
