    Carola looks killer dkeced out in that hat. Best hat I have ever seen. I just picked up your book and I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed looking at it. So many beautiful inspirational and unique women to behold. I wish my own Grandma were still alive so I could share them with her, I think she would find them fascinating and maybe even a bit weird. Bless you for seeing them and sharing them with us. XXOOKrista

    I live in Bend Oregon, where mountains, rachnes and forests are in great abundance .. the fashions and lovely faces of the women you feature are inspiration to ditch the jeans and cowgirl boots from time to time and just ‘go for it.’ Helen, 70 years young.
