What a difference a day makes! We finally got some sun and so I was able to get this hat into a black background which I think gives more contrast and allows people to see the details of the hat much more clearly. We have not had the sun for 3 weekends now and so it was so nice to see it this past Saturday and Sunday. You can see the wonderful folding of the ribbon much more clearly. I feel quite strongly that this hat is a designer hat as the work with the ribbon is so clever and innovative - too bad I do not know who it was. It is a hat that excels with light and shadow, and the additional movement provided by the nap of the every so soft pink velvet makes me think of Hattie Carnegie, and she did many hats in this shape of pillbox......what do you think?
