some of you remember an antique cream colored hat of mine, once covered with red silk flowers, worn frequently during the great adventure of 2003 —–>

remember this old hat? oh yeah!

remember this old hat?

 

this old hat accompanied me to two weddings that summer, perfectly matching my red spring dress.  after 5 years i thought it deserved a makeover, just in time for a new wedding.

note to hatters and milliners of the future – never use a hot glue gun to adhere 100 red silk flowers to a silk hat.  armed with a tweezers, tiny scissors, and a needle, i painstakingly removed flower pieces and stubborn bits of glue.  and when the work was done, i took my brand-old empty hat to the craft store and designed it a new outfit.  dressed in pink and green with iridescent wire edge ribbon, this restored hat made its debut at the summer wedding of greg and lynn in rockport, massachusetts.  it was incredibly popular, and was even asked on a date several times throughout the weekend.
