Friday Favorites and Fabulous Links

I'm in a playful mood as I write this so I thought I'd have some funny favorites this week. Check out this set of patterns for hats from the sixties that I plucked from Etsy....

...what's up with that one in the lower right corner? Or the conehead hat?

Or what about this one?

..."oh please don't look at me in this ugly hat!!"

Obviously, fashion comes and goes and some should just go. It makes for a good laugh looking back on them and saying what were they thinking?

That one on the lower right is hilarious. It looks like it's a few sizes too small. But I try not to laugh at fashions too much. I have photos from when I was a teen that send my kids into hysterics.
