Beatrice and Amy Were Seasonal Milliners Extraordinaire

I thought I ought to get this fashionable pair posted before autumn slips away. Bea and Amy were part of a trio found in Godey's Lady's Book. The paper is so thin and the letterpress printing so heavy that the music on the page behind them shows through - instantly creating another layer. The hats are composed of flowers from recycled greeting cards and wallpaper. The cameos and hat pin are from a vintage bead catalog. 5" x 5" on archival mat board. [Not for sale]
