Three Muses - Hats

Ann has chosen "Hats" as the theme at Three Muses this week.   I've always been partial to the beautiful hatted ladies by Harrison Fisher, who did many illustrations for Cosmopolitan and books in the early 1930's.    Books illustrated by Fisher are highly collectible.    The image above is a Fisher illustration, and the background is from Flickr Collage Images.   Thanks for stopping by!

  9. The women of yesterday had a refined beauty you just don't see today. Maybe it's all the tattoos everyone is getting.
