Under My Audrey Hat

I'm under there somewhere.  Hiding from the world.  Under my big 'ole Audrey hat which I love, love, love.  I found it in one of those cavernous second-hand/antique malls that go on forever and ever.  It was coated with dust.  The minute I put it on and looked at my reflection in a mirror (also coated with dust) I swear the ghost of Cary Grant winked back at me.  Charades, anyone?

I got a little lost trying to find my way back to the front of that store.  The place was truly a maze.  Filled with the most marvelous junk and a few genuine treasures.  When I finally reached my destination and plopped it down on the counter, the woman at the cash register asked me, "Where on earth do you wear a hat like this?  Pulling weeds?"

"Of course not," I muttered, a little put off by her remark.  "It's for breakfast at Tiffany's."

She looked puzzled.  I gave her my $8.00(!) and turned around to leave.  A woman with several vintage dresses draped over her arm started to laugh.  "Or a Roman holiday, perhaps?"

Sharing with my friends at the August Hat Attack.  Can't wait to see what everyone is wearing!

    Cheers, M-T
