Get to Know

I live in a small midwestern town in a sturdy prairie style house that will see its 100th year before we turn the calendar to the next. Having lived more years now than I have to go, my life here now suits me. Still working in a professional capacity, time spent on etsy and now here on artfire gives me a much needed creative expression. I love the beautiful hats of the roaring 20s- and fashion of days gone by- it speaks of intrigue!! I look at old time photos of women, alone, in groups, good times and bad- always well dressed and always a hat. I think our Grandmothers and Great Grandmothers knew something, but the photos never speak- or do they? Although these are uncertain times, I find I am peaceful, happy, thriving and just living life to its fullest. Nothing special, that is except for the wonderful, fun, fashionable, chic, retro hats and patterns I design. Enough said!! Rebecca
