Poppy Appeal

Watching the remembrance service on Sunday, I noticed an eye-catching poppy hat amongst the crowd. A beautiful way to pay respect. It's taken me a while to track down a photograph of the hat, but I finally found one today.

I just love this hat! How about designing a whole set of petal type flower hats for the Chelsea Flower Show ( when you have time!). Look at James May's plasticine garden for inspiration.

Wicked hat. I also love those fabric/silk poppies they have been wearing on tv. Respectful and stylish. ;)

On this theme, Craig Reville Hallwood (spelling??) the chap from Strictly Come Dancing had a really groovy sparkly poppy when he was on the BBC2 daily show (very sad to admit I was watching it!!)

I think it's great that people can link fashion and other aspects of modern life with such an important, if gruesome, part of our Nation's history.

Amazing Blog BTW.
