Apparently I don't look good in hats. My 'subtle as a brick' sister tells me this often. She says I look like Letitia from The Vicar of Dibley (who died on the show because she was so old) who favoured tea-cosy-style hats. I love knitting (I am quite the grandma) and hats are quick and easy to knit and subsequently I have a LOT of knitted tea cosy hats. So come winter, my sister has a field day when she sees me in a hat. It gives her enough material to last her until the next winter.
So today I was in hat heaven when I went to the Queensland Art Gallery to see Hats: An Anthology by Stephen Jones. It (as the name suggests) is an exhibition of hats. All kinds of hats. It was SENSATIONAL. I never knew you could make a collection of hats look so fantastic!! Here are some hats from the collection:

There are some wonderful wonderful hats in this exhibition. I am now desperate to be a milliner. If you are in Brisbane, please please go and check it out, its free and FABULOUS!!
