In-Studio Perspectives

I’m often asked where my ideas and inspiration come from. Here’s a simple example. These pretty flowers are on my windowsill at home (I often keep flowers there). Thoughts and memories of nature are with me always.

Isn’t it interesting how this fascinator looks related to the flowers? This wasn’t something I did intentionally; in fact, the fascinator was made before the flowers even arrived. Interesting!

Wouldn’t this be pretty for a non-traditional bridal headpiece? Maybe I should add a birdcage veil….

Vintage Hat Friday

Good morning hat collectors!  Although this is a wool felt hat, it hints of spring with its ring of flowers and fabulous handmade feather butterfly with long quill antennae. Each blossom adds dimension and depth, which makes anyone want to take a second look. There’s no label in his hat to identify a maker but it is hand stitched and has a high-quality feel. I think it’s a charming hat and I’m glad to have it in my collection.
