Autumn Revels is Revealed


A custom witch hat has taken to broom. Autumn Revels is a work in black velvet and smashing pumpkin hues; rust, copper, orange, bronze. Butterflies and bees and poppies. Fine vines winding and wrapping.

For every hat that finds a home, a piece of me goes with it. Be warned ;) For I sit, and sit, and sit with each one, fussing and adjusting, adding and removing. Until it is just right in its imperfection. For I know that somewhere there is a witch dreaming up her personality to me, projecting herself for me to conjure the threads of her special creation. And hey, if I don't hear you, you can always convo me at MermaidenCreations for a custom order!

You always thread words together in such a pretty way! Hats, too, of course. ;D

Oh I wish I had a hat of yours. In NZ we celebrate All Hallows here in spring. How crazy is that! From this year on I am flipping the calendar to have Halloween in Autumn..pumpkin season.

It's beautiful, Julie. I can practically feel the crispy autumn air (I'm going to try to carry that with me on this weekend's training walks!).

I am the lucky one to roost under this incredible hat. Wish you all could see it in person. I was happy to finally treat myself with a Mermaiden original. Julie, thank you for knowing just what I wanted and making it better than I could have imagined.
Boo..
