Long time no see!

Hello! It's been a while, hasn't it?!? I don't know where the last few weeks have flown to, but the last time I blogged was on 14th June!! I do have an excuse though... I have been busy making fascinators and hair accessories, looking after my poorly sick daughter and spending a week lazing by the pool in Spain!

Yes, we went on holiday with my parents and both my sisters which was fab. We had such a great week doing absolutely nothing except for swimming, sleeping, eating, swimming, sleeping and eating! What a great way to spend a week.

Taking off...

Me and my sisters having cocktails in the bar

I had a quite a few orders to get out before I went, and have been working on orders since I got back and my blog has taken a back seat for a while, and for that I apologise. Here are some of them. The others are on my camera, but I need new batteries to upload them!

Jessica Design in black with ivory and black feathers, to the UK

Bespoke Bridal Swarovski crystal and pearl Haircomb for a client in the UK Pewter and fuscia flower and veil cocktail hat for my friend Joanna for a wedding in the UK
Joanna Design in Navy with lagoon and ozone feathers for a client in the UK

I've also finished off the lounge and hall decorating (at LAST!) and my house is now in some sort of normal state again! I'm so pleased with the way that everything's turned out, and it's like living in a new house! I love it and it really feels like home now. It's all come together better than I could have ever expected.

The lounge, before...

... and after

The hall, all finished with the radiator cabinet and the newly waxed floorboards and rugs

I've been commissioned to do a bespoke tiara for a client who has a beautiful vintage style antique lace wedding dress with an amazingly long train. She lives locally so I've had a couple of design meetings with her and have come up with an initial design based on a pattern in her material. Can you guess the design from this swatch pic? I'll show you later when I've constructed it. I'm also doing her wedding jewellery too which will use elements from the tiara so it will all match. I'm really looking forward to this project.

The other good news is that Jordan doesn't have to worry about finding a new husband now her and Peter have split... Prince Charlie loves her...

You home looks gorgeous! I'm so jealous. I love all your choices. As always your designs are beautiful and I can't wait to see the vintage-inspired fascinator you come up with for your local client. Glad to see you and P are doing well. Take care!
