Messing about in hats

Hello everyone,  not sute about you but I missing wearing my steampunk gear very much and to that end I took to my garden to mess about in a few of my hats. there will be images and general madnedd to follow as I edit the vlog into sound bites of silliness.

Keep well everyone until we meet up in all our finery again


Here at Last

After much deliberation and cogitation I have the great pleasure to anounce the opening of my new website and online shop.

This virus has afforded me and my tech elf (son) the time to work together and build this site following on from the rebranding my friend Lea  from had already done some time ago.

I hope you like the results and there will be more news and products added to the shop as I go along.

During this difficult time I am currently able to visit the post office and therefore able to offer  my commission service and on line shop postal deliveries.

If you would like to share anything in the news section of this site please contact me through the contact page in the menu bar.

Once again thank you all for your continued support.

All best love and keep safe everyone.


Smoking Caps

This is the first of many of my new range of smoking caps, made from upcycled scraps of fabric in luxurious velvets and silks. I will be making some tassels from remnants of yarn and thread also. Currently working on the sizing. I know I should have listened in maths class about circles, thank heavens for google!  Let me know if you fancy one of these and we can work together on your idea...

Are you Frazzled & Jaded?

Are you feeling a little frazzled and jaded in these ever changing times, I know I am?

However it is extremely important that we all follow the government guidelines and keep ourselves safe.

Keep well and safe out there folks and we shall meet on the other side of this virus in our finery with much relief to just be there.

browse my shop and remember the postal delivery sevice is still available.

Best love to you all.

Mannequins to display your outfits?

As many of you know I've updated my pop up hat shop and to this end I am wondering if any of you folks would like a decorated mannequin upon which to display your finest outfit and hat?

I have male and female forms and am ready to work with you to bring your idea to fruition. I was thinking of decoupage with maps, cogs, paper obviously and anything else that takes our fancy...

Just get in touch and we can get started.

Comfort over Decoration!

That might seem obvious, but we can all get caught up in the decoration on hats and leave the fit til later. If your hat is a poor fit it will be painful to wear and then live in your wardrobe, this is far from great and very avoidable, correct measuring is essential or just try lots of hats on and only purchase the one that feels the most comfortable.

A little Light Dusting

When storing our hats for a while it helps to give them a little light dusting to keep them in tip top condition.

Here is a little vlog to help you to get your hat looking and staying it's best...
