Home Again

It was lovely, lovely, lovely.  Those are my all-too-inadequate words to describe our little vacation to Quebec City. 

The weather was great.  Sunny and mild enough most days to make me wonder if my felted hat would get worn at all.

Having knit so furiously fast to get it finished,  I did want to wear it.   Sel& Poivre had even suggested I would look quite chic in it.  Just because  'chic' is an adjective rarely before  applied to my style   doesn't mean it couldn't happen.  And dang if she wasn't right!

Shown here once back home, I think you can get the effect.  Just imagine me wearing it at the Chateau Frontenac,

the Citadelle, 

the Hotel Du Parlement

  viewing the city with the St. Lawrence in the background

or at any number of the neat little bars suffused with French ambiance
 and you get the idea.   Une vacance manifique!  With weather so good I only wore the hat one day.  Best possible scenario.

You did look chic! But I'm glad you only wore it one day. =) There'll be plenty of opportunity to wear it in the future!

Oh my goodness you two are adorable! I love your shirt by the way - in fact you look completely chic even without the hat!

'Glad you had a good time!

Looks like a wonderful little trip.
And, belated congratulations on your anniversary. You look far too young to be married for 45 years.

Trip sounds wonderful - love the hat and outfit. What did you use around the brim of the hat?
