Victorian Tea Party Mini Top Hat

Try as hard as you possibly can to contain your jealousy: The lady I made this hat for gives pony rides for a living. And they're not just ponies. They're rainbow haired ponies. 
You know how I feel about rainbow hair.


Magical things happen to magical people. Just as I was completing her headpiece, I found this vintage horse cameo locket to complete it. Seriously. In that color blue.

This was a custom order to match a pink and blue floral Victorian tea party outfit Angela made for herself. If you love anything girly and would flip! I hope we'll see pics of the whole ensemble together! Cough. Cough.


Thank you universe for continuously sending me the world's coolest customers and best vintage pins.

Paper Flower Wedding Mini Top Hat

I get this message on Etsy and Im dying to make this hat immediately:  "I'm a librarian and my fiance is a computer programmer, so the flowers are made out of recycled books, printed pages from my novel and printed pages from his code." 'Send them to me' I say. 'We must. must. include them on your hat.' Then the flowers come in the mail and I die all over again and happily. 

Then this happened:

Ivory on ivory damask mini top hat with champagne satin oversized bow and netting details.
Detachable birdcage veil not pictured. 


Can't really tell you how much fun I had making this hat and piecing these flowers together. They are tiny works of art and so thoughtful for their wedding. I'm sorta sad its over. Like a good book...dare I say? ;) ha.

Best wishes to Kim!! Send me more of your whimsical watercolor flowers and I'll get you a puppy.


p.s. you may also like Amy's button hat!
