Recent Purchases and a Gift

Here is an array of things i bought in my local charity shops.



And this is a gift  from my good friend Ray (because he knows I love sweetheart brooches and badges), who is 83 years old. It's from WW1 and it stands for 'Royal Flying Corps'.


Will Write Soon!

Mad Spring Hat

I decided to make myself a springtime hat (even though we are in the midst of summer). 

It was inspired by a hat I saw in my book 'Forties Fashion: From Siren Suit to the New Look', which by the way I highly recommed you perchasing if you are a lover of authenic 1940s fashion. 


These two hats are quite similar to the hat I was inspired by

And here is mine. Not amazing enough for Ascott but it will do me fine. I might add some netting which I think will make it look prettier.


Thanks for reading!
