KG enjoys making mosaics and creating art from found objects. Her office is decorated with a collection of oddball colorful items. She also has a glass head in her office - with no head covering...just the head. So last night I made this very colorful rasta-style hat for it! Bill was astounded that I was making such a brightly colored hat!

Since she isn't in her office this morning, I took the opportunity to dress-up the head and take a few photos... It's it great?! As you can see, it can be worn as a beret, as a dreadlock covering/hat/cap (although it would probably need to be longer to hold dreadlocks), or a hat to cover a lot of hair piled on top of the head (what is the name for this "style"?). I thought the black and white band would be a nice constrast to the brightly colored hat body.

I've left the hat on the head as a test to see how observant she (KG, not the head) is!
