I found this (or it found me) in an op shop. I think. It was a while ago. I've never worn it, just enjoyed it and wondered about its history. Was it a real hat, so to speak, or created for a pantomime or other theatrical performance? I love the workmanship of the curlicue and twisted top, although the 'jewels' do lack a certain subtlety...
It's fun. On the hatstand, it's a severe contrast to the classic Akubra, work and play perched side by side.
Sometimes a photo a day, to make me look more closely and see what is around me to be considered and captured, using the immediacy of digital photography. And possibly the odd rant, from time to time. Things made, found, discovered. A cornucopia. On the One Vivid Leaf blog, crochet!
