Hat Block from Prague

I am absolutely over the moon about my newly acquired hat block! I love it to bits and love that it has come all the way from Prague :-) A friend of the family, Kveta is a wig maker and worked for the Sydney Opera House a few years back but before she did that she worked in her native Czech Republic for many years in this lovely old profession. It's thrilling to imagine what was created on this block and for whom! We gave 'her' a sand and a lacquer but I am yet to name her... any suggestions? Have a lovely weekend - I am finding it hard to tear myself away from the TV as the flooding unfolds - ah a time to be reminded about being thankful for what you have!
