The night, gallops on its shadowy mare
Shedding blue tassels over the land.
~Pablo Neruda

To be honest, I am not really a tassel person. (I don't generally have the urge to buy stuff with tassels on them.) But my daughter Elena is graduating from high school tomorrow and I have been making tassels out of tissue paper for a banner, so I am in a tassel-y mood.

I'm not much of a "tassel-y" person either, but I can appreciate them nonetheless.

The tassels on the hat look like little I guess anything goes in the world of the tassel. :-)
