I just received my hat today and it's beautiful! Great quality and the shipping was fast! I love my new hat!


The happiness of hatting.

I discovered my love for creating at a very young age. I was constantly making clothes and furniture for my dolls, miniature houses to re-arrange, and art for my family. My parents were encouraging and supported my multi-medium dabbling. When I finally discovered millinery through theatrical costume design I was instantly smitten.

Sometimes creating new things can be a challenge. I like to work with an open mind. I allow the materials to speak to me as I work, adjusting and making changes as I go. Because of this, none of my hats are ever exactly the same. I currently work in the middle of my kitchen, taking over our entire dining room table, the coffee table and occasionally my hubby's desk too. Sometimes my little boy even offers to help, usually by modeling my newest flower barrette.

Some day I would love to have my own studio space, but I do enjoy being able to just pick up a hat and work whenever I feel the urge.

I love spending time with my hubby and my little boy. They keep me smiling when I get frustrated.

I am currently not shipping internationally because of the cost. If you really want an item shipped internationally contact me with a specific location and we can figure out how much it would cost.

I will accept returns up to 3 days after the buyer has received the item. I will not be able to refund any shipping costs.
Additional policies and FAQs
Wool hats ease to the wearer's head over time. Please make sure to check your head measurement before ordering a hat. Hats that are very size specific will be labeled as such. Most of my hats are water resistant though not waterproof. Hats with vintage pieces and feathers should be stored with care. All hats are spot clean only.
