how 'bout some ladies in hats

we made friends with men in hats...
wasn't it about time for some ladies in hats?
and what better time for a fabulous hat than Spring time?
When we were little girls, my sister and I would get
a new Easter hat each year. I love hats. I love a lady
in a big, glorious hat. It just screams confidence!!
And don't even get me started on some fab vintage hats from
the 20's!!! swoon. Love 'em.

These little gals are still in progress.
I think the yellow hat lady will get a big lace bow around her
hat. They all need a bit more paint and a coat of glaze and
of course I need the "just right" funky text for their
busts. wanna see a snippet of my prized possession little
vintage book?

I have other old French school books, but this one is the best.
I don't know what I'll do once I've torn every word out of it!
Love scouring through this book.

So, I'm off to enjoy the sunshine today!
Just wanted to show you that I AM working on a much
needed SPRING update for later this week.
I'll have a few Easter inspired goodies, women in hats and
some Spring lulette houses. More details soon!

I'll leave you with these wee lulettes that are headed
off to Sweeden. I would LOVE to visit Sweeden. If only
I could fold myself up and sneak inside the box!!


Happy Sunday!

I'm right there with you on the 20's. I wish I could dress in all the styles from back then. The hats were great too. I really like the Lulettes you are sending off. Whoever gets those is a real lucky ducky! Enjoy the lovely weather, it snowed here last night.

So are you learning French or do you already know it? I took 4 years in high school but I don't feel like I retained much. Your lulette houses are adorable! I wish I could be your delivery person for those. Bon chance mon amie!

Jessica said...

love everything ... especially the lulette houses that are going off to sweden!!! i still haven't given up the idea of asking you to do something custom for me ... :)

LuLu said...

Bonjour wonderful Jenn! Your little Hat Ladies are so special, so springy and so old fashionably pretty! And your Lulettes houses are so cute, they could be an assortment in a candy box! Ah! French here, French there, French everywhere! I am always surprised at the number of artists who now use French words or sayings in their art. But again, French has always been kind of exotic, right? When I was younger and traveling with my back-pack, I was often ask to speak in French, just becauses, ohlala! it sounded so cute! It always puts a smile on my face ... A bientôt, chère amie et passe une merveilleuse semaine! Bisous, LuLu xxx
