Milliner and Mama?

I make hats. I love it. I don't think enough people wear them (myself included!) but every time I take an order, my heart smiles. I make lots of bridal pieces, lots of things for the races, and silk flowers silk flowers silk flowers!

It's a gorgeously relaxing meditative hobby, and I love the time I spend with my fabrics, scissors, ribbons, felts, blocks and the most wonderful antique french flower tooling set.

I hope that I will still have some time to do this when my little ones arrive. I'm sure I won't for the first few months, but at least I know my things will be there when I emerge from my new baby bubble.

Here is a photo montage of a small range of my head pieces. Enjoy!

  1. Wow, your work is fabulous! I hope you can find a teensy bit of time to continue your love of millinery once your baby boys have settled in at home. I'd love to see more of your work too!
