Get Married At The Hepworth

On Monday I had a date at The Hepworth which is one of my favourite places to visit. Normally of course there are lots of people wandering around but on a Monday they are closed which is the perfect time for a photo shoot. It was slightly surreal wandering around the gallery, sometime totally on your own, but it felt very special too.
My talented pal Shelly of Toast Of Leeds was working her magic in the gallery as they are up dating their wedding presence. (did you know you can get married there)
How fabulous would that be.
So along with some other lovely pals we all tootled over to Wakefield and had a fantastic day helping to produce some amazing images to tantalise the public.!
Shelly will be sharing them so I will get them on the blog when they arrive. (The ones I spied on her camera were just amazing so I can't wait to see them)
I also met the rather dashing Henry who looked after us royally and will be co ordinating weddings.
The images above were taken on my phone, one was a grey felt cocktail headpiece and the other  was made from a vintage collar.

I will get all the details for the  wedding gowns, make up artist, hair stylist, models, jewellery maker etc once I blog the offical photographs.

A Day In The Palm House

Sunday morning I was up before it became light and packed the car. Then after picking up my friend, artist  Julia Ogden it was off to Liverpool to the most glorious Palm House.
What a beautiful building to hold an artisan fair with natural light and high ceilings.
Surrounded by plants and lovely people we all had a brilliant day, long day but non the less enjoyable.
Outside there were lots of delicious foods to be eaten and all sorts of interesting products.
Inside it was a cornucopia of crafts and works of beauty to browse and buy.
On the way to Sefton Park where the Palm House is situated I drove past the famous 'Penny Lane'
as penned by Paul McCartney, Had to sing a few bars.!
After a really great day it was back home by 9pm just a little 'pooped'
However I am now back to full strength and back at the hatting.

Refreshed & Ready To Roll

After a fabulous week of good weather in the glorious countryside of Powys I am now back at work and raring to go.
We stayed at the very peaceful Glyngnwydd Cottages which I can really recommend as it was just perfect.The sun was out and we relaxed in front of our cottage on a little yellow bench.
A little fresh water stream ran along a stone clad channel which was perfect for washing your wellies.
We then went on to the coast and Cardigan bay is very beautiful with all the villages and towns painting their houses in various colours, making it really attractive.
This week the first cocktail hat to leave the shop was a little button hat trimmed with vintage petersham ribbon and mustard glass beads. It was whisked off to Bordeaux so I expect the wine would be rather lovely and a good time was had by all.
Tomorrow is nation felt hat day, who knew that.! I didn't. So expect pictures of a few felt hats on twitter thoughtout the day.
I will be heading out to Liverpool this Sunday 20th Sept to the wonderful Palm House in Sefton Park.
The beautifully restored Victorian palm house hosts many events throughout the year as well as artisan fairs. I shall be there all day with a selection of hats and accessories so pop along and say hello if you live near by.
It's good to back.

Adding A Little Autumn To The Shop

Around this time every August I start to add a little sprinkle of Autumnal items to the selection in the shop.
The colours for the upcoming season are rich tones, mustard, reds,oranges,burgundy and grey to mention a few so here's my first few products. There's a cheeky black beret and a pair of fine 4 ply wrist warmers or fingerless gloves and a lovely tweed wallet and a matching keyring.
The neck wrap is an interesting grey and black textured wool mix so will look great over a simple jumper or over your coat to create a fabulous collar. The button is a perfect combination of grey and black and the popper is sewn directly behind it.
Winter dressing can be an interesting mixture of textures and layers, I actually love winter dressing.
Lets enjoy a last few rays of sunshine when ever they pop out from behind the clouds first,!
