Arts in Hats 2014 is in full swing! The hat designs and wall art images are amazing! As I walk up and down, among the various genre of hats and their accompanying picture images, which are also for sale, separately, if you just wish to purchase the stylized portrayed image of the hat design, I am continuously impressed, over and over again, by the talent of the artists, photographers, and designers associated with this event! , so come on over and come often, to purchase, these simply incredible works of art!
I am simply in a state of “paradise” wearing the FINESMITH’S Paradise Headpiece created, exclusively, for the Art in Hats Event. Just take a look at this exquisite design…no!..art! As it is truly a work of remarkable art! The graceful bend of the branches, that are adorned, as if by nature, with dainty small floral blossoms, that have been intertwined for a dramatic display of delicate and bold colors striking the perfect harmonic balance, as if put there by the hand of God. As your glaze travels downward, your eyes are treated to the feast of mixed larger and smaller blooms, that have opened to reveal their beauty, which have additionally, been arrayed with precious hanging jewels across the forehead, near the ears, and among the lower branches. It is just simply beautiful, as though a fairy waved her magic wand to have it glisten and shimmer with jewels. You will put yourself, in your own euphoric state of paradise, when your purchase FINESMITH’s Paradise Headpiece!
The amazing dress I am wearing is named Rosy, by GizzA. It was created, as an exclusive, for the past Love is In the Air Event, A Valentine Day Event. It is a most stunning gown!

Last year, this spectacular and very talented lady, Belle Roussel, introduced her Watermelon Fascinator, at the phenomenal, ground breaking, first ever, Art in Hats Event! Belle, being the fabulous designer she is, did not disappoint, ( like she could ever!!!), with this year’s exquisite presentation of her “Sailing to Byzantium Fascinator“! Belle drew her inspiration, from her love of the poem, of the same name, Sailing to Byzantium, by William Butler Yeats, thus giving us her wearable love and joy, personified, in the Sailing to Byzantium Fascinator. Here is the poem that launch the fascinator of dreams…
That is no country for old men. The young
In one another’s arms, birds in the trees
—Those dying generations—at their song,
The salmon-falls, the mackerel-crowded seas,
Fish, flesh, or fowl commend all summer long
Whatever is begotten, born, and dies.
Caught in that sensual music all neglect
Monuments of unaging intellect.
An aged man is but a paltry thing,
A tattered coat upon a stick, unless
Soul clap its hands and sing, and louder sing
For every tatter in its mortal dress,
Nor is there singing school but studying
Monuments of its own magnificence;
And therefore I have sailed the seas and come
To the holy city of Byzantium.
O sages standing in God’s holy fire
As in the gold mosaic of a wall,
Come from the holy fire, perne in a gyre,
And be the singing-masters of my soul.
Consume my heart away; sick with desire
And fastened to a dying animal
It knows not what it is; and gather me
Into the artifice of eternity.
Once out of nature I shall never take
My bodily form from any natural thing,
But such a form as Grecian goldsmiths make
Of hammered gold and gold enamelling
To keep a drowsy Emperor awake;
Or set upon a golden bough to sing
To lords and ladies of Byzantium
Of what is past, or passing, or to come.
As you can see, this beauteous sailor celebrates life by taking her plane…smiling, it’s much faster!
