The Perfect Fishing Cap

Northern Minnesota is certainly not known for its hot summers. It might be more known for its bitter cold winters. But this year the weather has been completely up-side-down. This past winter was extraordinarily warm and in addition there was little snow cover. I had thought it could turn out to be a very dry year. Spring came early but, with lots of rain and flooding. A dry year it is not. Now it is summer and the heat is almost unbearable. We are toying with 100 degree heat and that is quite unusual for this part of the country. And, all that rain just pumps up the humidity.
Sifting through the stores of some of my fellow scavenger hunters, I found some items that might make one think of cooler times. "Hot weather" is the ESN blog theme for this week.
One might want to serve up a nice dish of ice cream in this old time sherbet dish from Carolina Blue Lady’s store. Or, you could slip into one of these cool Hawaiian short sleeves from Eccentric Thrifter’s store. I like this silk AVANTI one. 
But my all time favorite is this really cool fishing cap from Embroidery Fashions Boutique. The elongated bill keeps the sun out of your eyes and the long flap in the back keeps the sun off your neck. Perfect for fishing!


  1. Good blog, great assortment of items!

  2. I'm starting to think you up there are hotter than we down here! Great post. Thanks for including my shirt! I think that hat would look great with it, especially while eating ice cream!

  3. Today (Friday) we got some relief from the heat. Only got to the low 70s here but just 175 miles south in Minneapolis, the temp hit 105 degrees.

  4. Great post. I love the items you selected.

  5. Like how you wove all the hot weather related item together. Thanks for featuring our hat.
