To all who mourn in Israel, He will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the LORD has planted for his own glory. Isaiah 61:3

    1. Hello Lauren!

      I do take commissions for hats as I have had some very bad experiences with loaning/renting out hats in the past...I will get a hold of you!
