Bristol of Honey Bend Vintage is hosting the above Kentucky Derby Hat Swap. Eeek!! How fun will this be?
My grandmother was a milliner. In fact, she was the original Jane-of-All-Trades. From dressmaking, hatmaking, hairstyling to running her own restaurant, she did it all and did it well.
I hope that some of her talent in the millinery area rubbed off on me because I have joined this swap. Ideas are floating through my head and I am trying to get them all to come together in some cohesive form.
My frame of reference for the Derby is very limited. But Ascot is another story. Picture My Fair Lady, with women in hats that defy gravity and Audrey Hepburn looking sleek and elegant in classic black and white. Ooooh. Aaaaah.
If your interests lie in making things that are fanciful and unique, head on over and sign up for Bristol's fab swap!
I cannot wait to see what these ladies make.
