Anyone got Valentine's Day plans that could include such a chapeaus?
I'm bidding on some vintage white veiling right now. Imagine this hat done in white for a bride.
The same veiling is available in robin egg blue. I'm picturing how it would look for the hat to be done in white velvet, with white feathers and just a few wisps of blue downy feathers, and the pale blue veiling. Maybe with random tiny white seed pearls on the blue veil too?
I'm starting to get the millinery mental mojo going again. My work room is 80% ready to roll...but my time management is iffy. I've got a bathroom to paint, wii workouts and games to do, hot tub soaking to enjoy, plus regular de-cluttering/cleaning, NCIS back episode watching, and naps. And of course the Olympics will be hogging my time for the next few days too.
I live such an exciting life...
Right now I tend to start playing wii and time just flies...last night I bowled 211, had a PERFECT center of balance, rated Body Builder on some of the strength exercises, and came just seconds under B's best time on skiing. Trying to beat B's scores is a great motivator!
Anyway, I am glad that the urge to create is arising. It has been a long time since I have done more than just sew a pillow. I don't know when I will actually get to creating millinery again, but it will be sometime, soon.
Seriously...wouldn't that make a stunning bridal hat? So much more interesting than just a hank of veiling flowing out the back.
But maybe that is just me as a 55 year old talking.
What do you think?
PS: Thanks to Judy for posting a picture of the fabulous Granville Island Millinery shop "Edie's Hats.
I just figured out why I am re-inspired.
It was the Millinery shop picture!
I'm drooling over it. Really I am.
