I thought, once I was married, my days of searching for beautiful dresses and putting together wedding color palettes would stop, but that was before I began creating bridal hair pieces! It is just so much fun.
I often flip through pictures of gowns when getting a sense for a hair piece I want to design. One of the designers that I keep coming back to is Adele Wechsler. She designs simply stunning fair trade gowns out of organic hemp/silk and vegetable dyed silks. A few of my favorites are River, Fern, and Cassia. I wore the Fern dress for my mountain top/woodland wedding this past August and I felt gorgeous!
Somehow I came across this magnificent gown that would be perfect for a woodland/fantasy wedding. Its green, its gorgeous and simply magical. Someone please plan their wedding around this dress! I would love to make a hair piece to go with it!
It is by Uptight Clothing in the UK for those of you interested ; )

The show in Essex was a week ago now, and I'm still not entirely unpacked! I've been fighting off a nasty cold and sinus infection all week and all of my energy has slowed to a halt. It is a bit daunting to walk into my workshop right now with things half unpacked and hardly any floorspace to move around in, but I will start the process this afternoon!
The show in Essex was a great experience. I merely broke even with my booth fee, but I guess it is all part of the process in finding which shows are for me. Next year, I think I'd like to try the Stowe Arts Festival.
My last show this year is on November 12th, in Morrisville, VT at the Peoples Academy Gym. It will benefit the animals at the North Country Animal League (where my husband and I adopted our two kitties, Luke and Leia). If you live nearby, stop in from 9-3 and support local crafters and artisans as well as animals in need!
Though small, this show is particularly important to me. Not only was it the first craft show I ever did, but I always like to support NCAL. I don't know what I would do with out my kitties! They keep me company in my workshop, and make sure I am adequately distracted : )
