Aretha Franklin's famous bow hat, which she wore to Obama's Inauguration, has been turned into a Christmas ornament. We knew it's fame wouldn't fade so fast; "Curtis Posuniak is the brain-child behind the ornament. He says the minute he saw Aretha's hat he knew he wanted to make a tiny glass version of it." It's made in Poland and will cost $43, but looks to be limited to Michigan retailers. [WXYZ via Twitter]
