The Fashionable Girl
would like your opinion on her hats

She says the straw one has a lovely flavor,
a seemingly dry essence that one must learn to savor.
But the white wool felted one
tastes of an earthy nuance with a hint of
fiber optic sparkled tingle
~ and would be fun to pull yarn from ~

(Just kidding Linda, your knitted creativity will not be destroyed
by this mixed media/altered art canine)
The website of this fabulous hat artist can be found here:

I have FOUR of her hats so far
(including this purple one)
Have I mentioned I have a thing for hats???
To view some of my watercolor and oil paintings,
many featuring women and children wearing hats, click on this link:
Happy 4th of July weekend!
What are fun things are you up to?
... We are planting flowers today ...

Oh dearest one, it is always a treat to see your comments come in for YOU understand my mind..colors....that AQUA just makes me taste sweet summers of youth, it gives me a clear vision of the swimming pools we would frequent as children, and so many other good memories...let us celebrate the colors of GOD'S WONDERFUL WORLD!

I WISH I looked
good in hats....
Your sweet dog
looks better in
them than I do!
Although, when I
was a kid and in
a class we had to
pick a dog breed to
represent who we
were, YEP, I chose
the afghan hound!!
So maybe I CAN wear
a hat, after all!
Happy Fourth of July : )
