Pom pom's are 'in' this season.
And that's as much fashion advice as you'll get from me.
I've never really had a clue as to fashion, never been in it, so, i guess, i've never really been out of it. However, i do know pom poms are 'in'.
When i was wee, my hat was never without a pom pom...well until it would get pulled off at school by someone thinking they were being funny and grabbing my hat aff my heid! Luckily, back at home my mum would have it attached to my hat in a minute flat.
I remember her showing me how to make pom poms, with two 'donuts' of card and wrapping the wool around them, then get the scissors to cut a space between the wrapped wool, tying it together with a piece of wool in the middle, and then peeling the cardboard away. Wow, that takes me right back to 1978!
Today, though, i had another flashback to pom pom attacks. I was sitting painting a canvas and leaning back in my chair to get a better view when my hat suddenly got yanked back. Not just once, but it was a quick succession of wee tugs.
Two wee paws had decided they were going to have this pom pom as a trophy. Twas Lenny of course trying to carry off my plumage! Until he saw it was actually attached tight on my head. I burst out laughing and he retreated in a wee huff.
He's still lying there though...watching...waiting, and biding his time till i take the hat off! "The pom pom will be mine" thinks he, "oh yes, the pom pom will be mine!"
Hope you're having a creative day!
Whit's he up tae noo?
