All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

Top Hats

On top of your head there's a wonderfully empty space. Why not cover it with a hat

There are so very many talented milliners on etsy making so many amazing hats. Personally, I prefer full sized hats to tiny toppers. Nice and black and velvet, tall and unmistakable or decorated more creatively with flowers or gears, these hats make a statement that cannot be ignored.

Great finds. TopsyTurvy's work and photographs are amazing.

Oh my goodness... I love that secret garden hat. I wonder if I could wear it, or if it would drive me crazy like normal hats do?

just divine. i do have a thing for hats. in order to wear these dazzling creations, you actually have to go somewhere besides kids' school and sports events, however. hmmmmm, maybe i'll get to the fire arts festival the crucible puts on in the summer- last year i was pissed i didn't have a steamy hat!

Haven't yet found a top hat that looks right on my head, but I surely do adore them. And I'm definitely a full-sized hat kinda girl.

Perhaps someday I'll find my dream top-hat... sigh.
