August’s Hat Attack was discovered at the Cherry Creek Arts Festival at the beginning of July.  The milliner Diane Harty HERE from Frisco, Colorado is usually present as a vendor with her beautiful headwear made from fine sewn straw braid.  I attend the festival just to see her new creations.


This year I was captivated with a black headpiece adorned with fuchsia feathers.  It reflects the color of the roses in my back garden!


I love movement in my accessories!  Spontaneously throwing about a black silk scarf seemed like the only thing to do to accentuate the feathers.  This chapeau makes me feel like dancing, which is a sure sign that it was meant to join my collection.

  1. What a fabulous headpiece, Judith – so full of life and fun! I love the fushcia feathers – they invite playfulness and movement. You look as though you are intoxicated by this hat, absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Your hat is a work of art. You look so beautiful ♥ Best wishes from Berlin / Germany – Baerbel ☼ – and thank you for the LinkUp!

  3. I tend to prefer wearing hats that are more like fascinators, like this one. I love the feathers and the movement they add to the headpiece. Another splendid addition to your glorious hat collection.

  4. Gorgeous head dress. Reminds me of a proud bird. Or the headdresses of PNG where I grew up.
    One day I’ll be able to play with you all again 🙂
    Loving your white hair as it contrasts the black and red!

  5. Oh, I love this hat, Judith! I would wear it in a heartbeat – such fun and vibrancy! Who doesn’t love feathers, too! Thank you so much for hosting – I’m happy to have made it early this time!

  6. Stunning. What a headpiece. Questions that rise in my head are: would that be expensive? I bet it is. And..: how does it stay on? Does Judith have thick hair? With a pin? My hair is thin and there is little of it. Everything just slides out.
    I addressed a man sitting near to us in a restaurant, wearing a hat. I complimented him and in our conversation he told me about a very good hat shop near my house…. So … you never know, I might join Hat Attack once again. I am definitely going to the shop.

  7. Oh Judith, you’ve outdone yourself again! This headpiece has so much personality, or maybe it’s just the woman who is wearing it that gives it the magic it deserves. You look ever so happy and energetic, love everything about this.

  8. The photo of you with the scarf is a million ways of wonderful. So glad to see Daniel and you together again making such art. And AT LAST, I have hats on my post, several in fact. I’m so glad I could join your linkup. Thank you, Judith!

  9. Move to the head of the class!! This post gets an A+. 🙂 You and Daniel are making magic.

    I’m so delighted that I can join you here on Hat Attack. Looking forward to many more. xoxoxo

  10. I think these are the prettiest photos I’ve seen since I came across your site a some months ago~and I love the hat!
