My Kentucky Derby Hat Swap ...

Since I live in the Grand Canyon State of ARIZONA, I decided to go Cowgirl Fabulous! I covered an office box with retro western fabric, and I glued a Tupperware bowl open side down to make a "hat holder"
Here is the finished box and tag the goes with it.
And here is the hat! First, I glittered the brim of the Cowgirl hat, then I made a bow out of ivory netting and weaved in some copper conch's. The grand finale is the crown with "Genuine Fools Gold Nuggets" that I glued on to add a touch of Cowgirl Fabulousness Class!!!! (ha-ha)
I sure hope my "partner" enjoys wearing it. "YE HAAAAAA !!!!!"

I love the hat. I love the tulle poof in the back! Your partner is going to love it.
Now onto important stuff....which one of you is 50! No one looks 50 in any of these photos!

I agree with Terisa...I don't see a 50 year old in any of those pics!

Kelley, you must have been spending time redesigning your blog....it looks awesome. Next, I want to see you design a wedding gown from three rolls of toilet paper, 5 paperclips, and buttons. Crazy thing, you would do it with style!
