    What Hat Are You Wearing Today ?

    Oh, wow. Dark moss just sings in any environment. So versatile. That’s a super one, Brent. So is another in the works from Gannon?

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today ?

    As for the facial hair— how do those of you with moustaches have the patience? I liked the look, but couldn’t eat, drink, or kiss without painful pulls on the upper lip! So off it went. Sure worked with the Clearwater derby though!

    HAT ADORNMENTS: ribbons, bows, pins, pugs, leather, etc.

    Been finding some nice feathers on the ground lately. Also found a small, recently molten probably young garter snake skin that I’m trying to figure out how to use for an adornment.
