A Cloche for Mrs Pendlebury. From New York.

I was at school with Albertus. I always admired him from a distance, knowing that he would do something interesting with his life. And I was right - the rest of us became accountants and clerks and programmers and shop assistants, but Albertus became a milliner. In New York.

Loving those black cloches! Also really like Albertus' shirt. He looks like he'd be an interesting person to know.

karina - Well, nobody in your school may have become an artist, but "Asesora de imagen" sounds pretty creative to me! And just looking at your blog, which is beautiful, I can see how artistic you are!
kendalee - Oh, I covet one of those black cloches. Especially now my hair is cut in a short 1920's bob!

stephanie - I think one of them will be just right for the delightful Miss Enid Boynton!
