If I could put time in a bottle, I’d pour it out on my head in hopes of wearing it as a hat. Fortunately for myself as well as others like me, Miss Straaf has made this possible. Stretching the bounds of haberdashery and imagination she brings us the Steamy Victorian Time hat.
This, dare I say nomlicious (I promise that’s a word, even if only in my own head) hat is full of intricacies, from the rich texture to the wonderful detailing in its working clock. And, besides being timely, it’s for a good cause. Proceeds from the sale of this fine creation benefit cancer research through Relay for Life. This hat truly touches the heart as well as the head, as it was made with love for her father, who has since lost his own battle with cancer.
You can find this and many other wonderful creations at Hatpins. And if you go quickly enough you can still catch the Midweek Madness special, a lovely Lady Morgan hat!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I see a bargain in a chocolate top hat that is just begging me to nibble it!
