You just have to see Tuka Threads, the wonderful millinery designs of millinery Joan Hammerschmidt.
Her designs just rock.
Check out her work (all of the sections, I've just linked you to one division of her work.)
Then if you can, get out and see her work in person...Laura, Mom, and other San Diego folk, she has her hats in a La Jolla Boutique, check under EVENT CALENDAR to see where.
Love it, love it, love it!
(Thanks Marie for sending the link!)
