LET'S TALK ABOUT HATS
Part of what I do for a living is to make hats. It is I suppose rather an old-fashioned thing to do - but I prefer to think of it as a new fashion, or to be more precise, re-fashioning. I often re-fashion things that I find in flea-markets to make my hats. You come across such beautiful things. I'm a big fan of markets, jumble sales, brocantes, garage-sales, clothing exchanges, e-bay, street-finds....the possibilities are endless. You are guaranteed to find at least something unusual that will excite you, and that will have a story attached to it.
