Making Hats.

I felt sorry for this poor vintage creature when I found him at the London Dungeon car boot sale. Yes! they really did have a stall selling all their Jack the Ripper tour stuff and booty when they moved location in London. I curled the vintage creature round the brim of a brown tweed hat with a few other curios and artifacts.

New pig!

The farmer has moved a pig to the field next to my house. I feed him every evening after work. He looks really mean but he isn’t, he is very friendly and loves all the food I give him. 🙂

An amazing day at the vintage car boot sale in wonderful sunny weather and a great atmosphere. An ideal place to find those cute vintage outfits and unusual artifacts for me to add to jewellery and accessory making.

La Belle et la Bete ~ Gala Nocturna 2014

Meeting the Beast at the ball

Meeting the Beast at the ball

A wonderful evening spent at the Gala Nocturna ball with the theme Beauty and the Beast, held in Antwerp and this year the evenings venue was the Antwerp Zoo. A brilliant ball room, majestic stair case and winter garden. I hope they hold another one next year and I can’t wait to hear the theme and venue.
