My Hat Looks Important!

Here's a picture of my hat that's being exhibited at the Peabody Essex Museum in conjunction with their show on hats. My hat is part of the local show "Contemporary New England Milliners"(CNEM). I think there were four of us chosen to have hats in the show, but I can't say for sure.

Mine is the burgundy hat on the left. The hat on the right is by Sarah Havens. You can find these and the other CNEM hats in the American gallery.

This has been a totally cool experience. Seeing my hat under glass makes it seem very important.

Have you not seen it?

Oh dear, you must go to the Peabody Essex Museum to see their latest exhibit—it's all about hats! Old, new, decorative, funky—it's all there. There's eve a giant body hat—it covers the head all the way down to the knees!

I'm a lucky girl because I have a hat on display in a related exhibit, their "Contemporary New England Milliners" show. So funny to see one of my hats under glass and on display in a museum. Then you can go over to the shop and try on some of the hats that they have there.

If you're into fashion, put this on you list of things to see. The show will be up until February, but you should go early because you'll probably want to go back a couple of times.

Opening night reception was on Friday, and Stephen Jones, milliner extraordinaire, was on hand to talk about this exhibit that he put together. Here are a couple of shots I took at the event.

The New Studio

I just realized that I never posted a photograph of what the studio looks like. Of course, you're going to want to actually come to our Open Studios event being held the last weekend of September to see it all for yourself. In the meantime, here's what the new-ish digs look like.

Yes, it's a little packed, but we like it and Andrew and I are getting along just fine even though the space is a lot tighter. We'll try to have it looking tidier by Open Studios!
