Baby it's cold outside

Congratulations to our winner - Krista who "loves the train hat!"
Thank you to everyone who entered. Check back often for more contests!


Ok, it's not. It's supposed to be quite warm today in Ottawa, but it's time to start thinking, even if just for a minute, about winter.... and Gramma's hats!!!

There's a special story behind Gramma's hats - Gramma is my mom :) She started making these hats quite a few years ago and it's become her hobby to make them and sell them - giving almost all the money to charity (really, she just keeps enough money to make more hats).
Gramma's hats are $18 and $13 of the sale of each hat goes to the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario. So you get a cute hat and you help out a great hospital.

And we're having a contest to win one of these hats!!!

Here's what you do. Check out the Gramma's hats on the web site and then leave us a comment telling us which one is your favourite. We'll pick a lucky winner next Friday (September 14) who will get to choose the hat of their choice (what you tell us is your favourite in the comments isn't written in stone ;)

If you'd prefer, email us at info(at)apples-n-oranges(dot)com with your preference.

Good luck - and share the news about this contest. Gramma wants to know which designs are most popular so we can stock up for winter ;)

Wow! Tell Dr. Mom (or is it Dr. Gramma now?) that I LOVE all her hats. My most favorite is the train one, but that ~could~ be Jason's influence.

I LOVE the train hat...what fun! The Hudson's bay hat is pretty cute too!

My little guy had the best hat last winter that he's sadly outgrown! I got so many compliments on it, I could have sold a hundred of them! Can Super-Grandma make anything like this??!! I'm dying to find me a bigger version of this hat!!
