A beautiful Bride
Sometimes it's just great to take a break from the madness of production and deadlines to create something unique and beautiful for someone unique and beautiful. When a neighbour asked me to make a wedding hair piece for her beautiful daughter Caitlin, it turned out to be such a breath of fresh air for me. So, here are some photos of Caitlin adorned by my silk, ivory rose with a tiny vintage forget me nots centre. I couldn't have asked for a better model.
I have had quite the string of wonderful things happen to me since I moved to Lunenburg. The latest is my new studio space, which I have yet to move into. It will be in the upstairs of a local store. I can't say too much about it, but the owner is being beyond generous and I can only repay her in hats. The space is big and gorgeous and as soon as I can find the time to help her clear it out I will be able to move in. I have thought about posting photos of my present working conditions, but decided against it since it kind of wrecks The Hat Junkie mystique. Better to look at my web site and see this wonderful, put together, little shop than to see photos of my living room and dining room over taken by shipping boxes, my work table piled high with unknown STUFF and every hand made flower trying to protect itself from the yogourt and blueberry covered hands of a very active four year old. Even if I never do an ounce of work at my new space it will be a relief to have my things out of harm's way
As the orders continue to pour in, I find myself dreaming of having the time to make curtains for our new apartment, mop the floors, take a yoga or maybe even ballet class, but ofcourse when the orders slow down I will begin dreaming of my summer hats and wondering when the next order will come. Until next time. Happy Hatting! Anna
