Etsy Shop Opening!

I've been thinking about opening an Etsy shop for a long time now.  When I finally  decided to do it, I had a hard time narrowing down my choices of what I would paint first.

These lovely ladies wearing their elegant hats just came to me while I was sketching out some ideas one day.

And here are the final watercolor paintings.
Spring Daisies
Pink Roses, Black Veil

I really think it would be fun to live in a time when everyone wore hats everyday.

" taste exacts that in a city a hat be worn with street clothes in the daytime.  A woman wearing a hat is more chic than if she were hatless."  Emily Post's Etiquette 1960 edition

Please feel free to stop by my Etsy shop.  I hope to have more items in the line up soon!


  1. Oh my gosh-- I LOVE your artwork!! Thanks so much for the kind words about the RH article and my blog - seems we have a lot in common :) I love hats (I have a mannequin in my studio named Edith Head whose sole purpose is to model 1940s hats!) Also love the hat, gloves and purse combinations. Love your blog - I'm following it - look forward to seeing more of your lovely artwork.


    1. Hi Jenelle,
      Thank you for the compliments! What an apropos name for your mannequin. I would love to see all your hats. I'm pretty new at this, so I am very excited to have you as my 8th follower!!
