Letter M


Hi Everyone!
Another Tuesday already, and another month is upon us!  I hope you all had a good Easter. It is nice to see some sunshine here today.

For my tag this week I have chosen M is for Millinery.



 I used a millinery calling card from The Graphics Fairy
for the base of my tag. I made a hat from a piece of old hat. ( I knew it would come in handy! When I was doing City and Guilds at Windsor we used to be given old costumes from a school acting cupboard to use in our textiles work, and I saved the pieces of hat for future use!) I trimmed it with lace flowers and ribbons. The idea of millinery was inspired by my favourite book of Victorian fashions, which has some marvellous illustrations, and I have used this as a background for the photograph.
I enjoyed your L tags, and thanks for your kind comments on mine.
