This hat shoppe’s windows are from Winnipeg’s twilight zone.
They can take you back in time.
The artist’s style of capturing the period mood is delightful.
I shot each and every hat.
I shot each and every window.
Then, there is the real challenge of capturing it as a whole,
…as it quite a long and remarkable mural.
It’s so interesting that the artist included a tricorn hat.
I see pilgrim and pyramid hats!
I’ll show you the rest in the next post!

Hi- I enjoyed my visit here. It was a lot of fun! 🙂
Wonderful art! 💕💕
It really is wonderful! ⭐
Love the way the pictures kind of melt.
I try to present in an order that expresses the mural in reality. Your comment is a compliment to me & the artist. TY!
LOVE this idea, making solid walls look like a shop 😀
Street art has challenges that can create extra special ideas. I believe this work has risen to the challenge! 😀
Resa, I absolutely love hats; I mean LOVE…
Unfortunately hats don’t love me; well, not the shape of my face, that is!
I bought a hat when in Copenhagen early this year; the only hat I’ve ever been able to wear and feel good about it!
And, I love this post…. 🙂
I love hats. and the vibrant yet vintage colours here make me really want to try them all!
I love hats, too!
Why don’t we wear them anymore?
I think the hair product companies don’t want us to. Yes, I can be cynical. LOL!
Actually, in some places, the hat envy is a real thing. I have a carnival witch hat I bought in Italy and I never wear it, because whenever I do, everyone just wants to grab it and run 😀
Eek! Hat envy… who knew?
The only place I can think of where hats are the Bee’s Knees are the horse races. IE the Queen’s Plate, Royal Ascot, Preakness, etc.
Don’t lose your hat!!! 😀 😀 😀
What a great find dear Resa. Hats off to you my friend. Love and hugs. Ralph xoxox ❤ #<
… but you’re hat is still on! LOL, just kidding. For you, from me & the Full Monty https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkepW2JEm24 xoxo ❤ <#
Haha ! That’s what a hat is for ! 😉 xoxo ❤ <#
Hahaha!!!!! xo ❤
This is super delightful, love it all with that bit off the old haute couture vibe!
Haute Couture is still alive in some of our minds and hearts! IE… your drawings.
Good news .. I have received 4 of 5 pics from the photographer who shot my last Art Gown on a real live model.
I will make my first Art Gowns post on a real model very soon!
Amazing. A wonderful piece of street art. Thank you for this. ❤
It is a great work of street art, and I am so grateful to share it with you & others who appreciate. ❤
I love these murals so very much, Resa! I would walk around and stare at every detail. Simply stunning!
Lol! That is exactly what I do… I stare at every detail. I am possessed to capture all details. This particular mural makes me feel like there is actually a Hat Shop inside, and that I could enter and buy one.
I had to divide this into 2 posts. There are just so may hats and a lot of information.
Isn’t it a great idea for a mural.
It truly is! 😀
An Aso-Oke is actually a type of Nigerian weaving. It consists of narrow stripes that are stiched together. I have a piece containing some Ikat weaving. Quite typical are patterns applied on top, made from silk or synthetic fibers. In the old times, the silk of an African silk worm species was used. Later, silk scraps from the Italian silk industry where used. These where brought to Libya and from there through the Sahara. Today, it is mostly synthetic fibers, but the basic material is still cotton. See http://ogunsheyefoundation.com/index.php/aso-oke-gallery for some examples. The looms used for the weaving only allow for narrow stripes. It looks like this started with portable hand looms of the nomadic groups of northern Nigeria, but I am not an expert on this. However, African textiles are quite fascinating. Actually the earliest domestication of cotton on the world was in Africa.
I am a bit familiar with Ikat weaving, but this informational comment is a wonderful addition to my education.
It is of note that synthetics have invaded the purity of many ethnic cultural fabric creations. I saw this in S. America.
I consider myself very fortunate to have you visit my blog. You are so very knowledgeable & your sharing of what you know is valuable.
Such a delight~! All of those beautiful types of hats and the wonderful colors too.. The detail is impressive ❤
It truly is delightful! I found it when I went to shoot the Nellie mural. It is on the next corner. ❤
So, they chose Viola Desmond to be on the $10.00 bill. Talk later!
This is impressive, is a beautiful millinery, invites us to stop … and enter.
I love it, I want one like this … but of potters.
The photos are great !!
Yes, a Ceramics Shop! It would be awesome! 😀 xo
Art of windows is a true masterpiece of what is consider originality and heart. Beautiful photos. 🙂
Finding this mural was a true bonus. I made a special trip to shoot a very important mural in Winnipeg. I’m posting that one next week. This mural was around the corner. 😀 😀
You went to Canada? How was it?
Resa, you are a sweetheart. I’m very proud of you everyday. I’m so blessed to have you as my great good friend. 🙂
Amazingly well done. I see how well different eras are portrayed.
This mural definitely has historic value. So many of the Murals of Winnipeg have that integrity.
