Austentation: A Fashionably Fun Pastime

Since Austentation: Regency Accessories was first launched in 2000, I have had the wonderful opportunity to meet many people from all over the world who also love Jane Austen and the Regency period. Thank you for making my work so much fun!

I discovered an interest in hats, especially those of the Regency period, while reading Jane Austen's novels. At first I began making them, just to "see if I could". I made my first as a Christmas present for a friend enamored of Pride and Prejudice. Finding that I really enjoyed it, I decided to pool my talents and create a custom shop ( The Etsy portion of my business began in Ocotber, 2011, giving me the opportunity to sell ready to ship items, like trimmed bonnets and jewelry, as well as wonderful vintage finds sourced from the amazing Brimfield Antiques Show, held three times yearly, here in my town.

In addition to fashion and jewelry, I love working with miniatures and have created eight dollhouses to date. Now that I have daughters, I also enjoy creating custom doll pieces to fit their 18" dolls. Here on Etsy, you'll find a blend of our interests- a sort of "Ladies Paradise" if you will, encompassing our fancies of the moment. Sometimes my mother or sister, both talented seamstresses, will help me with sewn orders, and my husband Kent, takes the wonderful photos which you can find all over both sites.

God has certainly blessed in the years since He first gave me the idea for Austentation and none of this would have been accomplished except through HIS grace. He IS the author of creativity, and nothing is possible without Him ("All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made." John 1:3) We truly do serve an Awesome God!
