...and in the beginning...
There was a hat; unobtainable, desirable, unique, inspirational, historical and full of character. This hat told a thousand stories and had been a thousand places.
Unfortunately for me it was out of my price range, but it planted a seed of inspiration that developed into a fully fledged idea to create my own... my own bushman's hat adorned in my own stories... and after that a mild obsession about a fantasy life as a milliner. We'll see where that fantasy goes, but my own outback dream hat is definitely underway covered in random treasures from my travels, each with it's own tales.
So this is where it started, an old hat at a swap meet in Bendigo. Who knows where it will lead?
