Polka Dots

I have been using some polka dot 'crin' which is a woven fibre to make a few headpieces including this 50's styled headband. It's secured with small crystals and has a black crin bow as a trim also with a cluster of crystals in the centre. It sold on Saturday to an American lady for the Derby.Hope it brings her luck on the horses.

A Town Hall Affair



Whilst having my hair cut a few weeks ago I asked Debbi owner of Zeitgeist if she would be interested in a photo shoot I was thinking of putting together. So we sorted out a few details, which day, times, models etc. I then asked Shelly from Toast Photography if she was free to come over to Hebden Bridge to shoot it for me, and she was.!
 The tweed suit and jacket were kindly loaned by Libertyfreedom  urban tweed is one way of describing their fab gear. Debbi cut Kim's hair, with incredible precision and Danielle had her red hair pinned up into a great shape. All the jewellery was hand made by my pal local jewellery designer Rachel Lucie and the models had their make up expertly applied by Alison Clegg who came over from York for the morning.
I should add that I made the head wear.!
Holly my right hand girl helped me with just about everything including getting everyones lunch.She also made the heart quill you see in the picture taken by the tiled wall in the town hall stairwell.
The Town Hall is a wonderful spot for any shoot, lots of dark wood and huge windows, ours took on a real Mad Men look don't you think.?
I could wax lyrical about the shoot but I think it's better to let the pictures speak for themselves.
Cheers Shelly not sure if Patch the dog [on loan] stole the show.!

Vintage wedding Fair

 On Sunday I left home bright and early to go to East Riddlesden hall for their vintage wedding fair.

 Shelly from Toast photography was set up across from me so there were plenty of laughs and witty chat in between the flow of wedding fair visitors.

Holly my intern came along with me and made her very own head wear which was much admired

There were so many lovely set ups including Emma bespoke wedding flowers 
 Beautiful jewellery from Saving face jewellery

I was next to a lady who made hand made wedding pies. Not your average pie, these were pretty if a pie can be pretty.

 I was able to use my lovely hand drawn sign again by artist Julia Ogden

Gorgouse table settings from Simply Vintage Events

I took along my woodland crown, cuffs and corsage which is hand crocheted, wired and strewn with crystals. One bride is coming to try on at the shop with her dress, this is a very particular wedding style so she was very happy to find it.

Hand painted signs from Barn Studio Signs

A whole table full of treasure from Vintage Strawberry who had some incredible vintage gowns.

The whole event was really lovely

What a beautiful timber roof.

So after much chatting to ladies who are now coming to the shop to sort out their upcoming wedding head wear, I went home very happy and with very tired feet.

Sunny trip to the museum

On a cold but Sunny Bank holiday Monday we went to visit our local museum Banksfield Museum
There was a delightful exhibition on of the wonderful illustrator Quentin Blake's work as well as the Botanical Threads textile pieces by artist Vivienne Brown. A lovely time was spent reading Roald Dahl books surrounded by all the illustrations.
Lots of lovely inspiration to be found on my doorstep, well almost.
