"Mum's the word ♥"

Mother's day on March the 14th heralds the start of spring for me, but also makes me slightly panick, as my own mother has her birthday in the same week! Now is the time to get organised and find gifts to mark the occassion. I have created a small range of corsages, made from vintage fabric and trims, of which I have pleanty!! The fun part has been hand dying the fabrics to get all the cheerful colourways. The corsages all arrive in a pretty decorated gift box, with tissue paper. A joyful gift for mother's day, Easter, or any of the up and coming spring festivals ♥

" Let them eat cake! "

The recent Burlesque event " Amour Burlesque ", was a huge success here in Leicester, with tickets selling out. While I don't have photos of the night to display yet, let me show you some of the hand beaded pasties I make for the professional dancers to twirl and sparkle on stage, or for glamorous girls to display on their dressing tables.
I like to think of the pasties as little cup cakes on a cake stand in Marie Antoinette's boudoir!
Most of my hand beading takes place in the summer, whilst Mr. Tony and I are on holiday in our secret hideaway in beloved Cornwall. I sit by the huge log fire, or by the stream to enjoy my work! It would be much too time consuming to make the pasties during a working week!

" Hearts on Talulah "

Valentine's day is almost upon us and is quite a hectic busy time for Amber and myself at Talulahblue. There's the 1920's flapper Burlesque show to get ready for and numerous orders to finish. The fluffy pink garters have almost sold out in my Etsy shop and the heart shaped glitter pasties always cause a stir. Here are a few of our favourites...
Happy Valentine's day on Sunday, wishing you all love and peace ♥

Bird Cages

I am always trying to think up new and exiting products to list in my folksy and etsy shops.
It's always best to offer great value for money, never more so than right now, especially when you make luxury items, like moi!!
So, although my cocktail hats are simply perfect to wear at a wedding or posh occasion, my customers may want something with a more contemporary feel.
I've started a range of simple veils, which are inexpensive, young and flirty.
They fasten simply with a single salon clip and can be worn alone or with an added flower.
Here's a selection of birdcage and mini veils, more designs to come later xx
