Lighthearted Tribute to Earth Day / Hat of the Day Sketch – Lilly Daché’s Carmen Miranda headdress

April 22, 2010

Happy Earth Day, everyone!  I’m sure you’ve heard news stories and personal testimonials all day about how to save the earth and, while that’s wonderful and inspiring, you may be getting a little worn down by all the hubbub.  So, today’s Hat of the Day celebrates Earth Day in a lighthearted way!

House of Nines Design’s Blog the other day featured Lilly Daché‘s autobiography Talking Through My Hats (which I will be reading); the photo of Carmen Miranda in her now infamous fruity hat made me giggle inside, so today’s sketch is my attempt at connecting two of my favorite things – environmental stewardship and fun headwear.  🙂

So, again, Happy Earth Day, y’all!  (And don’t forget – Earth Day is every day!)
