According to Sue Ellen Cooper, the founder and Queen Mother, the Red Hat Society began as a result of a few women deciding to greet middle age with verve, humor and élan. We believe silliness is the comedy relief of life, and since we are all in it together, we might as well join red-gloved hands and go for the gusto together. Underneath the frivolity, we share a bond of affection, forged by common life experiences and a genuine enthusiasm for wherever life takes us next.”

Rodella the Red Hatter

Rodella is a Red Hatter and a member of the Nursing Home Avoidance Club.  She has 23 grandchildren from the ages of less than one year to 22 years old.  Rodella loves to crochet and has been making each of them an afghan.  She figures by the time she is done with all of them, the great-grandchildren will need afghans too!

She learned how to crochet as a child, but what got her back into it was watching Vanna White on Wheel of Fortune.  She bought one of Vanna’s books on crocheting and just went to town.  Rodella loves being in the Red Hat Society. It’s the only organization she’s ever been a member of that is all about fun.

I have a strong feeling that Rodella would not be inclined to own a little lap dog, but if she did, here is what the pup could wear on those cool morning walks together:

Rodella is very stylish and would only leave the house with this hand knit and felted handbag adorned with felted roses and leaves over her arm:

And she would never dream of going out unless completely accessorized:

For her next party, Rodella can use these adorable little knitted place markers/egg cozies:

Rodella invites her good friend, Emma, over for a little drinkie poo.

And having fun is what they do – throwing down Two Buck Chuck in their polka dot wine glasses trimmed with boa:

And what would a party be without – you guessed it – the fabulously fit and feathered sock monkey.  And here she is, a proud member of the Red Hat Society:

  2. Love the post and the “nursing home avoidance club!” I intend to join the club as soon as I am eligible 😀 And the ladies of the Red Hat society are good examples of doing that with style to spare.

  7. Hey, thanks for showing Rodella. She is a cutie. You can tell for a Red Hatter she works out… no fat on her arms or legs. Glad you like her.
