Loving the vintage vibe!

Here's where I'll share my obsession with vintage fabric! It's taking over my house!

I'll sharing with you my favorite fabrics, my 'adventures" in dressmaking using vintage patterns, some home furnishing ideas and no doubt I'll be telling you about any exciting finds! Love to hear about your vintage adventures too!

My first Shop was AudreysCat ( online shop May 2010) , but my new logo / name - WittyDawn , arrived Jan 2014.

I hope you'll have time to browse my shops too !

it's ALL about Hats....

We've been talking about hats on the forums - and admiring made by Sophie of http://folksy.com/shops/imogensimagination . She makes super hats with flowers, birds and butterflys on them like this - very retro!

And in particular we've also been talking about BIG hats so I scanned a picture of my BIG wedding hat! from Droopy and Browns .... a LOOONG time ago ( the hint is in scanned ....no digital camera then !)

It's all been a bit 'hat'y' this week as I've also just recieved my leopard print and red lace Bubble Betty rain hats http://www.bubblebetty.com/ - devine! now I WANT rain! look out for more piccies of me in my Bubble Betty's to come - even if it's sunny.... (oh that isn't me in this photo it's one from Betty's website ....!)

Christmas ... IN JULY !

Ok I know our Summer weather has been dreadful but making Christmas stockings ? ...REALLY ?

However if you craft to make a living ( well sort of...!) then you won't be alone. Lots of crafters I know are starting to think about Xmas and if you want to stand a chance of being featured in the Nov/Dec editions of magazines then they are looking for items NOW!

So I'm getting busy - here's some of my new Xmas stockings in a luscious vintage ruby red sateen ( 50s/ 60s) - if you like 'em let me know !

All together now..."Jingle bells, jingle bells...."
