A Big THANK YOU To My Newest Photographer And Models


I was thrilled when pinup photographer Autumn Luciano contacted me to do some photo's of her models wearing my snoods. Having looked through Autumn's portfolio I didn't hesitate a moment knowing the photo's she would take would be amazing!
Autumn worked with the yellow, cherry red and white snoods and came up with some spectacular shots. The lovely models are Frankie Louveles (red and yellow) and Valerie Boerema  

Autumn is also currently working on a pinup calendar called Pin Ups Love Pussycats.
Pin ups love pussycats is a calendar project consisting of the donated talents of many wonderful ladies. 100% of the profits from the calendar will benefit The Mid-Michigan Cat Rescue, in hopes to secure a larger facility to house the ever growing population of homeless cats through out Mid-Michigan. MMCR is a NO-KILL organization.
Please check our her Facebook page to help out a very worth cause!

Jitterbugdoll's Custom Snood

A while back the lovely Miss Amanda Lee contacted me with an idea for a snood she wanted. She liked the beaded open crown snood but wondered if I could make a version of it with a narrow headband. I adjusted the original design for her and here are the photo's of the results. I think it looks wonderful on her! Thank you Amanda!

Memories of Farley Granger

Hollywood lost another old movie star yesterday. Farley Granger passed away yesterday at the age of 85. Most know for his roles in Alfred Hitchcock's "Strangers On A Train" and "The Rope", one of his lesser known films and one I really like is "Side Street". If you ever catch it on TCM be sure to check it out.

Back in September of 2007 my husband and son attended the Pine Bluff Film Festival and had the opportunity of meeting Mr.Granger and viewing "Strangers On A Train" in a historic old movie theater. It was a lovely experience. Here are some photo's from that night.

Anchors Aweigh!!

One of my very best clients had a request for a 1940's style popcorn stitch bag. I used my Lillian vintage pattern to make her this darling bag in navy blue with a nautical print lining and tiny anchor zipper pull. The handle is accented with clear sparkled plastic rings.
