Its... Fascinator Friday!

I can't believe its Friday already this week, just not sure where the time has gone! Its been a busy week for me and the little one, with Baby Sensory class on Monday, a day of hat making on Tuesday, visits from Auntie Helen and Grandparents on Wednesday and 'real-life work' for me at the end of the week! And in between it all we've managed to sort out buying a new family car too!

The glorious summer weather has finally returned to Scotland ( it was 21 degrees C yesterday and promises to be hotter today). So this morning I've been busy searching out some beautiful fascinators that embody the spirit of summer to share with you!

First of all is one of my pieces that is available on a made-to-order basis. The Strawberry Dream Fascinator was originally made for friend and photography student Mari-Claire Francis and is now available to order in either its original hot pink colour or the colour of your choice. Handmade in shot silk, edged with matching satin bias, with lashings of matching veiling and three hand sculpted strawberries this fascinator is sure to get heads turning at your summer event!


Next up is this stunning 'Lily Pad'  fascinator from Anna Shoub. Made from twisted seagrass straw with a beautiful handmade flower created from a vintage handkerchief meaning that each fascinator will be unique! This is an unusual piece from a very talented designer that will certainly be the crowing glory to any outfit for that summer wedding or party!

I also recommend checking out Anna's Blog 'The Hat Junkie' -

And Finally... if you're after something a little more macabre, then why not this 'Death-Glam Hawaiian Delight' fascinator from Cara Crass! A gorgrous confection of bright orange simamay with magenta feathers and veiling, yellow orchids and a little guinea fowl skull! Divine!

Thats all for this weeks 'Fascinator Friday', thanks for reading and remember to come back next week to check out more creations and finds. Next week I'll be focusing on Bridal Fascinators!
