My Aunt Victoria is a talented craftswoman. She bought a falling-down turn-of-the-century home in Snohomish and lovingly refinished it over many years in impeccable Victorian-era style...she knits wonderfully unique garments, crafted my Mom a Santa-doll last Christmas, complete with a darling handpainted face and little bag of toys...she can do hair, craft intricate lampshades, pillows, make-up...need I say more?

So it is no surprise that her newest endeavour has been these amazing hats, bedecked with baubles found at antique markets that she scours across the Puget Sound area. Her wearable art will be featured at a "Girl's Nite Out" wearable art show in Everett this October. I'm lucky to have been asked to help model her lovely hats, and my dear friend Drea has also volunteered for the job.
