While on vacation in Hvar Island, Croatia my girlfriend Boni and I came upon a charming, old world, upstairs art gallery/shop where we each splurged on handmade hats. After lunch we boarded our rented catamaran and sailed away to our next island adventure but before we were even squared away, Boni's brand new hat blew overboard and was gone forever. I managed to hold on to mine but felt a little guilty. None the less, we'll have the memories of all the fun we had in the shop trying on all the various hats and finally deciding on our selection. While at the shop I was captured by the simple beauty of a rustic vase of dried flowers sitting on the old brick windowsill with an artsy "curtain" behind made from circles strung together.
For the Day 18 Beyond Layers challenge, I converted this image to B&W and used Kim's Aurora texture.
