The Girl Next Door

This is truly amazing. I have been wishing for a model for some time. It is just so hard to coordinate times. If only there was a beautiful woman next door. All I had to do was open my eyes and behold there is Hayley, beautiful mom to Thomas and Luke. Two doors down. We take these photos in short, mommy friendly twenty minute sessions. She gets some hats and a little adult conversation and I get the perfect model.

I love Halifax

Yesterday I set up my wares at the Halifax Market again. I had only one goal and that was to get there alive. I'm on the road at 4:30 a.m and the thought of being pried out of bed in the middle of the night and then driving for an hour and a quarter always terrified me, but I decided to face my fears and get over it. As you have probably guessed I am alive and my goals were wildly surpassed. In the middle of January I sold many hats and met so many beautiful people. This photo is of Gali who bought the hat that I made just a few days ago. She was wanting a felt hat, so I had her in mind when I designed it. So nice when that works out. The photo was taken by her gorgeous artist daughter Evgenia. Click here to see some of Evgenia's beautiful work.

I needed that.

Just got back from visiting family in Maine. It was just what the doctor ordered- no work for 5 days, lazing around whilst drinking wine, stuffing my face with delicious food and playing in the snow. I almost feel normal. Enjoy the photos and Happy New Year.
