My brother-in-law Brian Bubonic and his trusty Samsonite have traveled the globe – New York, Paris, Reykjavik, El Paso, to name a few. What do these cities have in common? They are all places where Brian has lost hats.
He had misplaced a light gray Kangol cap on a recent visit. We searched the entire house, his suitcase, and finally his rental car, to no avail. Brian explained that his hats have a habit of disappearing whenever he travels. The following day, I found the cap in the middle of our street – run over by cars and absolutely filthy, but still intact. Brian was about to write it off, but I treated it with a little Spray and Wash and it was good as new! He could once again proudly adorn his pate with something stylish!
I decided to make a card commemorating his terrible luck with retaining chapeaus.
This card is based on Martha Stewart’s Sentimental Valentine’s Day Wheel. It’s a spinny card known as a volvelle. Martha’s staffer’s volvelle contains endearments, while mine pokes fun at Brian.
Here’s Brian in our latest collection of fashionable headwear:
