Three Muses - Hats

How long has it been since you wore a hat? I can remember going to the Loop in Chicago to a shop in a large building on Madison Ave. and picking out my Easter hat with my mom and aunt. My aunt was the "dresser" of the family...some of her concoctions were the absolute perfection of confections. Feathers, ribbons and pearls, colors divine, veils and frills. She couldn't be outdone as she sashayed her way up the aisle in church. Everyone simply had to notice! So, here's my "tip of the hat" to the lovely theme of HATS! Hats off to all you great artists who bother to take a peek...

A beautiful tribute to hats! Such subtle, soft colors. A great collage page!

Beautiful piece. Love all the hats. I have a muted lavender suede one that I wear to church in the winter sometimes. I usually see 2 or 3 hats every Sunday. For decades there were no hats seen. Now they seem to be experiencing a comeback in my area.

Small and medium hats are great. I sure hope the huge Victorian hats don't return. I don't think any of us have neck muscles to support all that weight.

I would say the last time I wore a hat was in 1967 when I was married in a Jackie Kennedy style outfit topped with a pillbox hat. Yikes, that's 42 years ago and something I don't exactly like to recall! Your collage is so beautiful. I love it.

Wonderful selection of hats - I almost hope women were still wearing them!

Your ATC is lovely with the different hats. As a matter of fact I wore a hat just a couple weeks ago while playing at my other hobby. More to see on that soon.

Hats ...... I wear them all the time. Well, not exactly a hat, more a cap. What would I do without my trusty shower cap! :O)

Beautiful collage. Love those wonderful soft colours.

Super collage! And I still wear hats on "bad hair" days. The coolest part of being in your forties is you can dress however you darn well please!
