Art Fair

This weekend was another art fair at the Instituto. They happen every two or three months. Some of the same people come for all of them. The Oaxacan rug vendors, the man from VeraCruz who makes beautifully bound journals and books, the jewelry makers, and then there are a lot of locals who also set up booths. What caught my eye this time was the hats.


We are headed into the "Hat Season" or you could say the "Hot Season" and you need a hat in the fierce sun. All of my hats are looking ratty. Time for a new sombero. I didn't want any ordinary hat. I wanted color!


And there you have it.......my new hat! I think you'll be able to spot me in a crowd.

Great color!

I think the color is very sophisticated. Bright yet warm. Just don't let it keep you from seeing where you are walking!

I love hats. That is truly a fine choice Amiga. I think it will go well with your skin tone and certainly protect as well. Congrats!

Thanks to all of you. I wore the hat yesterday and I must say it is very stylish although prone to taking off in a strong breeze. Fortunately it can be tied to the head.
