Kentucky Derby May 1, 2010

It only lasts 2 minutes, but what a 2 minutes it is!!!
Well, "technically" anyway, the fun goes on all weekend and into the summer but as far as I'm concerned, it's ALL ABOUT THE HATS!!
Every day is a 'make it a say something special kind of a hat day' but there's nothing like a day at the races to bring out the best or present an opportunity to those who are a little shy about wearing a hat.
Hopefully, all of the wonderful compliments that wearing a hat invites will encourage these ladies to never leave the house without one!
The Kentucky Derby has never been canceled so, the rain didn't stop any of the fun! [There was some discussion during WWII but it never happened].
The show must go on!
I had SO much fun this year creating just the right hats, to match the perfect for the races outfits, that my passionate, stylish, moxie hat ladies of unequaled coolness chose to wear for this fabulicious event.

This post will be a work in progress as I am still waiting on more photos to be sent in but here are the First Over the Finish Line....

Ginny, wearing her 'Cloud Nine' as she poses for the paparazzi :

" Jackie,
The hat was a hit! Although I saw a few with 2 foot brims (too windy for me).
How's this for a great picture? (Arnold Palmer's not too shabby either, eh?)

Hard to resist trying on a beautiful hat!.......

Ginny's sister Laura, enjoyed the spotlight too, on, Louisville's Guide to Style, wearing
Derby Chic. This hat was also included in Treasury East on ETSY as posted April 16.
Pictured here with her very proud [and handsome!] Dad...

 Jeanette, wore a custom version of the 'Cloud Nine' in white with flowers to match her absolutely beautiful dress....
I thought I would send you a link for our photos from the Derby. As you may have seen , it rained, and poured, and the weather caved in... BUT the show must and did go on and I wore my dress, the hat and the shoes( rubber boots).
It was great and I got many compliments..I would have had more if the sun were shining and I was able to walk the paddock area!!! But here are some pictures attached and then I will send a link of my shots.
Thank you so much for your hard work and for the awesome hate. Kudos and please use the hat in your portfolio.

Check out that smile, could her hubby be any more proud!!!

To Be Continued!!!

The Best Mother's Day!

Today was just the BEST Mother's Day. My Son and  Daughter-n-Law announced they were having another baby in December!
I was so blessed when my first granddaughter, Skyler Belle, came into the world and happier than a bird with a french fry, 10 years later, when Tatum Cecelia came along. Now, I'm just excited beyond belief that there will be 3.
Life is good. Thank you God!!

Wellspring's 12th Annual Derby Preview Party is set for Tuesday, April 20, 2010 on Churchill Downs' Millionaires Row. This night of fast-paced fun has become a "signature event" of the Derby season. Attending will be a sell-out crowd of 500 community leaders, young professionals, doctors, business owners, and celebrities from the sports and horse racing worlds. This year's event is sure to be in the spotlight, as the three living Triple Crown winning jockeys – Jean Cruguet (Seattle Slew), Ron Turcotte (Secretariat) and Steve Cauthen (Affirmed) – have all accepted our invitation to attend! In addition, John Asher of Churchill Downs will be our Master of Ceremonies and Handicapper Extraordinaire Bill Doolittle will share his picks for Derby 136!

Wellspring, a 501(c) (3) charitable organization, provides hope and recovery to adults challenged with severe and persistent mental illness. All
proceeds from this annual event go to support Wellspring's crisis, transitional and supported housing sites. Since 1982 Wellspring has helped over 4,000 people regain a meaningful quality of life. They assist people with severe mental illness; persistent depression and chemical dependency avoid homelessness, reduce hospitalizations, return to work and live a life of hope in the community.
