Cute as a button


I was recently introduced to a company, Konjono, whose motto is "really cute hats!" When the name Konjono, meaning it's beautiful in Amharic (the primary language of Ethiopia), was stumbled across by the owners — at once they new it was the perfect name for their business. It was just the feeling they hoped their hats would evoke, with a dose of great big smiles on the side.

Konjono started out in 2003 as a hand decorated lampshade with special ribbons and eventually evolved into hats with ribbons. The hats are designed and made in the United States and use quality fleece and grosgrain ribbon. You can even custom design your own. The owners, Deborah and Anne, recommend looking in a Crayola box to find the name of the color you are looking for and they'll go from there. How fun!

Konjono was kind enough to send me a sample of one of their most popular designs, the Hot Pink Crab. It is sure to brighten any winter day with it's pink, green and crab bundle of fun! The hats come in a variety of sizes and I have the most adorable, pink-loving 5-year-old friend who will have her eye on this one since it's just her size :)




There are hats for boys as well. One of my favorites is Gone Fishin' (below).
Another option for the older bunch is the school spirit line. There are over 50 universities represented and the hats would be perfect for those icy cold winter days trekking across campus. The one below isn't Elon, but it is Elon colors. Go phoenix!
I threw in the Georgia Tech one as well since it's my sister's alma mater. Go jackets!
If you want to check out the hats for yourself, you can find them here. Happy shopping!

Yes, 8th grade was a little young. But, my aunt and uncle were with me for part of the time and then picked me back up around 11. My cousin let me wear her Tri-Sig sweatshirt and I was very happy when people thought I was a freshman. ha

SO SO adorable! I must pass this along to my friends who have little girls. I don't think my little dude would appreciate it if I put one on him. Ah ha

So my baby cousins might be getting these hats for Christmas. But no, I actually went well outside the world of golf and actually work in Real Estate PR. My job is mainly social media and I love it!

Yay for another Elon person! I went back to homecoming this weekend it was ... interesting to say the least. I need to blog it soon.
