The Absinthe Fairy

Do you ever feel the need to write and yet have absolutely no idea what to write about?

I am constantly in this state of confusion myself.  I'll have an idea about something to write, yet as soon as I sit at the keyboard, my mind goes completely blank and I've no idea what it was that I had intended to say.

So, since the train of thought has once again derailed, I think I will just share my newest hat creation ~

 I call it The Absinthe Peacock.  You can see more photos of it (as well as my other hats and jewellry) in my studio Imaginary Relics over on Artfire.

Just for the heck of it, here's a couple of modeling shots as well ~ 
This photo I like to call The VooDoo Queen.   
It really has nothing to do with voodoo, it just seemed like an appropriate name for the photo.
The hat I'm wearing is the Burlesque Queen

Same hat, same dress, completely different photo vibe.

I love taking photos and then playing with them in Photoshop.  
It's so much fun!

Time to get to work on something interesting.  I am attempting to make mini steampunk goggles out of leather and watch crystals.  If the experiment is successful, I'm not sure if they will become a necklace or get perched upon the brim of a new hat design.

Whatever the outcome, my workbench is calling!

Peace, love & light.

The October Market

The October McDonald Street Market was just as much fun as the fledgling September one.  I think this is going to be a great monthly venue and am thrilled to be a part of it.
 I think my tent looked even better this time around with the changes that I made to the displays.  I've got a couple more changes in mind for the November market.  Hope to see some of you there!

Peace, love and light!

Pondering The Past While Building a Future

Do you ever feel like you missed out on who you were supposed to be because you were too busy being the person everyone else thought you should be?

Or have you ever felt like a has-been who never was?

Okay, so those things may sound self-pitying but I think it's okay to feel that way sometimes as long as you're not wallowing in the feelings and are actively working toward a change.


I always was a late bloomer.  But that's okay.  Better to bloom late than not at all.

Peace, love and light!

A Slight Deviation

I had planned on writing all my October blogs about Halloween.  I LOVE Halloween!  My studio has Halloween decorations displayed year 'round.

Well last night whilst watching Journey To The Center Of The Earth on YouTube 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crmtwfdjoJ0&feature =related

I got the funniest error message I've ever seen and just had to share it with you.  After I selected the next part (I believe it was Part 3) instead of the video showing up, I got this hilariousness ~

Sorry, something went wrong.
A team of highly trained monkeys has been dispatched
to deal with this situation.
If you see them, show them this information: 

Followed by a bunch of gobbledy gook code looking stuff.

Luckily, when I hit reload, my video showed up and I was able to finish watching the movie.  Sadly, Gertrude the Duck gets eaten by the evil Count shortly after this photo was taken ~ 

Halloween blogging shall resume tomorrow!

Vintage Hallowe'en

I adore vintage things.  For me, they bring back memories of simpler (better?) times past.

I'm especially fond of vintage postcard art.  Someday I'd like to have a collection to display in a gorgeously shabby chic vintage frame.

Here's a few of my Hallowe'en favourites ~
