Cuprum Riding Hat - Cloche Series

I love this color... it is one of my favorites. In fact, I have a whole stash of fabrics, pieces of clothing from thrift stores, etc, stored under my bed. They have been there for years.... Someday they will become something else. I always remember them whenever I am working on something else in the color Copper.

This is "Cuprum", (which is Latin for copper). These cloche style hats arecharming, don't make me sweat in this hot weather and are just plan fun to play with.

The paintings in the background of the pics are ©WB Eckert 2009 whose work can be found here and here

Today is my birthday. Another year has come and gone and I am still here. I am here, healthy and still creative. I am here, happy and still content.

My husband painted a painting for me. He surprised me and made me incredibly happy. This is my very own...just for me........all mine. I love my husband.
