PhotoHunt #6 - Hat

Dutch boy costume
Dutch costumeVolendam Museum
This week's PhotoHunt theme is hat(s). When we visited The Netherlands last summer, we went to a small fishing village called Volendam. It's a touristy place with many shops selling souvenirs and such. There are also a couple of places where one can have their photo taken wearing a traditional Dutch costume. On my daughter is a Dutch cap or Dutch bonnet. This is usually made of white cotton or lace. It is sometimes characterized by triangular flaps or wings that turn up on either side.

    By the way, over at my blog I'm starting a new photo-meme for Sundays based on my Sunday Scenery posts. The details can be found on the Sunday Scenery Photo Meme page on my blog. I hope you'll consider joining the fun.

    They were amused especially my little boy; he wanted to bring the costume with us.

    @JyLnc
    Yes, they did, we all did. My husband and I dressed up too.

    @Annant
    Yes, the Dutch bonnet is unique.

    @Tarheel
    I will, thanks for the invite.

    Thank you!

    @Carol
    Yes, the shoes are made of wood and have to padding inside. It is hard and uncomfortable. I cannot imagine how they walked on those every day.

    @Joy
    Oh yeah, it's Christina Ricci. :o)
