I’m currently obsessed with “Portlandia,” a new tv show on IFC that pokes fun at Portland and all us peculiar Portlanders that take ourselves so darn seriously. One of my favorite episodes so far begins with Carrie Brownstein & Fred Armisen putting birds on everything and calling it art. They paint, stitch and glue various birds on plain items and then classify it as art.

I just couldn’t resist designing a rustic, kinda Anthropologie meets Portland Tree Hugger slouchy hat and putting a rather large bird on it. Feel free to add any kind of bird embellishment that floats your boat (or not) - ‘cause that’s the Portland way.
