It's been so long!  I promise this won't be a downer of a post!  In fact, that was a grunt of relief.  I've had two very big custom projects to complete, one of which has been completed and shipped off (should arrive today!  Eek of excitement!)  and the other which is 75% done.  I have three big craft events coming up (listed below), and I've also been working on some pieces here and there for the holidays, filling Etsy orders, restocking local shops and trying to keep up with life in general (and the gutters falling down and the broken fireplace and the cat that has been using my dining nook as her private powder room...)  But life is good!  Busy, but good!

Here is some of the custom work I've done recently:
Father of the Bride, Father of the Groom, Grandfather's Boutonnieres with vintage watch parts

Groom, Best Man, Groomsmen Boutonnieres

Grandmother's Corsages with tiny sprockets at the end of the curled copper wire

Bridesmaid's Fascinators - Maid of Honor is far right

Wedding party - a nature/steampunk-light theme

Custom hair fascinator to sit above the left ear, paired with a bandeau style veil.

Fascinator with a single red rose, vintage black velvet millinery leaves and black satin ribbon

THIS is why Etsy is great!  Anything you can imagine can be made for you.  You can post requests using the Alchemy feature and take bids from sellers, or contact sellers directly to see if they'll work with you to make custom items.

If you need a custom order for fascinators, bridal hair accessories, bridesmaids gifts, boutonnieres, corsages, veils, etc. made from feathers, silk flowers and interesting vintage pieces, I'm your gal.  I'll work within your budget and try to create something very special and unique.  These pieces were all painstakingly crafted.  What can I say?  I love a challenge! 

My dad was impressed with my custom items, so that made me feel extra good about them.  Here are some of the items you'll see at the upcoming craft shows!
Vintage poodle pin, french veiling, white maribou and pink goose feathers

Vintage findings are featured in these pieces

Wedding fascinator with something blue and a little white dove

Reconstructed flower, Czech glass bead center and forest-y feathers

Christmas fascinator, flower made with feathers and vintage finding
And here's the list of where you can get up close and personal with my flowery, feathery goodies!  Come try them on!  Get all your holiday shopping done early this year!  And don't forget how important it is now more than ever to BUY HANDMADE!!!  :)
