Two days of Hats

I have always been very fond of hats, in every shape or form. Big or small, extravagant or simple. They all have a special place in my heart. And in the last two or three days Hats, or Mini hats to be exact, have been constantly on my mind. Considering how much I love these hats I would certainly never say no to aquiring another one and so, when my friend and I started talking about minihats last... sunday I believ it was, I was immediately ensnared by the idea of making my own miniature headwear and decorate them as I wish. And that is where it all started...
Believe me when I say that I had never, EVER, tried anthing of the sort before and so I was pleasantly surprised to see how well my very first hat turned out. Is it not strange how a little fabric, some cardboard, a piece of metal wire and some glue can be put together to create such a beautiful thing? Not to mention the many yards of white satin ribbon, the soft feathers and the beautiful roses I used as decorations.

So low and behold; my very first attempt at the creation of hats:

I simply adored how it turned out in the end and that high has lingered in the last two days. Yesterday it was even so strong that I could not help but attempt to make yet another hat. Of course, this time I has company in the shape of my dear friend Emmelie and together we sat for hours until we finally were satisfied with the results. Unfortunately, I only have a photograph of the hat I made so you shall all have to settle with that one alone.

Is is not gorgeous?

And yes, I shall stop praising myself. For now anyway.
