Thank you Ali

Thank you Ali for making my day so special. When the postman came and I opening the envelope I was delighted with your card. It made me smile.

"How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it."

As the world gets faster and time seems to fly it is lovely when someone takes time to say thank you. So thank you Ali for your photos and allowing me to put them on my blog.

More photo's of Aiveen

Thanks Aiveen for letting me show you these photos on my blog.
Bright and beaming as always. Yes I did make her head piece as well as her dress and lace ensemble.

The bridesmaids had a one shoulder dress made in silk dupion to compliment Aiveen's dress and lace jacket. I made brooches for the shoulders, with 3 dimensional of leaves and flowers, that can be removed so that the girls will wear their dresses again as evening dresses.
Aiveen's Mum is also wearing one of my creations. Her accessories, her midi (head piece), her jewellery and her bag and shoes were all made by me to complete the look.

Cheery Thoughts

I had a horrible start to the week. Sadly I was at the funeral of a lovely girl Christine who was a bridesmaid of one of my brides. What a cheery girl with a zest for life, who seemed to pack in so much to her tiny life. So her legacy to me is to live life to the full and make a point of doing all the things you want to do as we don't always know if we have tomorrow.
Thank fully one of "my old brides" called to see me and show me her photos and gave me good news which cheered me up.
Thank you Aiveen for sharing your photos, the smile on your face says it all.

I have a little book of cheery thoughts, here is one to ponder over.
Cheerfulness has been called the bright weather of the heart.

Fascinators or hats

I heard a new name for the in between a hat and a fascinator this morning, it is a midi. A french word pronounced rather different than it is spelt. However I do think that something bigger than a fascinator and not quite a hat is the in thing.
With Ascot this week there has been plenty of inspiration.
I do enjoy making head wear, my clients seem to give me artistic license. I usually pin my creation together so that it can be approved before I finally assemble it. Usually if I have made the outfit I have a good notion of what the client will be happy with.
