GO BABY GO! This weekend is one of my all time favorite events...The Kentucky Derby! While the husband and I won't be able to go this year, we will be there in spirit. While perusing our local swanky men's store this week I came across a gem of an item. Of course I'm a huge fan of needlepoint and that being said...a huge fan of Smathers & Branson. Nestled among the needled crab, sailboat, and trout...a hunter green hat with a little mint julep gleamed back at me! I debated on getting it for the husband but he's super picky about the fit of hats...so, I thought maybe I'd get it for myself. But, I have the tiniest head ever and usually have to wear youth size hats. Alas, I left it at the store but not before encouraging the sales guy that they should do a Derby window display with that hat and a seersucker suit. He was excited at my suggestion and so now even as I'm typing this thinking I may go back and take a chance on the husband's picky-ness...I bet someone else is already sporting this number and, well...that's a little needling to say the least! Check out Smathers & Branson for all your needlepoint needs.
