Anna Marie: The Purple Hat

The only thing Anna loved more than dressing up was having her picture taken. This is a hat for a large stuffed animal, but she kept it on--without any straps or anything--all night. As long as you told Anna Marie she was "a pretty girl," she'd sit still and let you take her picture for hours.

This was a Pinky-Lee sized purple hat that she took a particular fancy to. It didn't have a strap, but when I put it on her, she just sat there with it on and waited for me to tell her she was pretty and take her picture.
