I met Louise today.

I got the biggest smile...a hat named Louise...with a wing!
Jane over at Glorious Hats has knocked another one out of the ball park, in my humble milliner opinion.

Really, why isn't Jane's work being covered in magazines???

I read craft magazines all the time, and go "pff, this has nothing on Jane's stuff."

And yeah, it is warm here again today.

Lucky me, but dang, all the really cool hats out there are either for cold weather or cocktail parties.

I'm striking out on both around here.

Today's fantasy: A hat party with my blog friends where we wear our winter hats as we go to visit a great art museum.

Tomorrow's fantasy: A cocktail party with my blog friends where we wear witty cocktail hats and sip beverages from creatively shaped glasses while singing around the piano at the St. Regis hotel. You know, like they used to do in the old movies.

Ah, winter day dreams. Feel free to join in!

(PS: There are more shots of Louise on the Glorious Hat blog. Definitely worth dropping by...)

What a cool hat!

If we're partying in really neat places and wearing hats, I'm in there! Ah, those old movies where the ladies dressed so elegantly and wore hats and exuded class...sigh...count me in!

But first, I need a hat consultation. I've never found one that looks right on me (very short, overweight, shoulder-length hair...).

Awww Jill, you've got me turning red in the face. So pleased you believe my work is good. Thanks for bringing Louise to your blog.

The museum tour sounds grand. The cocktail party too. Wine is a fine drink.

Ahh, maybe first a wee shower, a powder and slip into some fancies. YES! a great idea. See you later for the tour.

I just love the Grey parasisol. Guess who wants one? ME!

I love the Art Museum idea--I'm always in for an art museum or gallery stroll. Let's go!
