A travelling hat is in town

I recently had the amazing privilege to participate in an amazing idea by Australian Milliner, Tanith Rowan.

The idea is as follows: She's created an adorable vintage inspired tilt-hat, and is sending it around the world to various vintage lovers. I jumped on the idea as fast as I could.

The hat has been named "Adelaide", and she had a lovely time with me here in San Diego.

I had grandiose plans for photoshoots, but it's been very warm here, and I haven't been feeling up to par these past couple of days. But I got out the house, and kindly asked my sister to photograph for me.

My grandma recently gave me one of her dresses either from the 60's or 70's, and I felt it suited Adelaide well.

Balboa Park is currently going through it's centennial celebrations, which means loads more visitors, and my sister and I getting frustrated with finding good photo spots.

We popped into the United Nations building, and grabbed a photo with a tiny Australian flag (and a failed search for TimTams)

Then I posed in front of the famous Botanical Gardens.

I think Adelaide really enjoyed it in the park. And I think she enjoyed the weather more than I did. Haha!

It was so much fun hosting Tanith's beautiful hat. I could see every loving stitch placed into it. The hat has many more adventures to go on, and I can't wait to see where else she's headed.

I'm going to save up for one of Tanith's gorgeous custom hats, but she's also got a darling etsy shop with a few up for sale. Buy some so she can start a cozy college fund for her daughter!

And be sure to check the Sisterhood of The Hat tag on her blog, to see where else Adelaide has been!

Thank you for the fabulous opportunity, Tanith!

Vintage Flea Market Finds

Once again, the San Diego Vintage Flea Market has come and gone and I left with treasures!

I went with my friend Megan, and I actually brought my camera with me. But sadly, I only took two photos, and they were very similar to each other.

I had fun actually hanging with someone. We were both terrible influences on the other, and we laughed when some of the vendors said 'Oh I remember you, I sold you this!' After we shopped, we went and got something to eat, and our servers were wondering why we were dressed up 'so nicely'.

Alright, here's the haul!

A lovely dark blue purse, which is hard to photograph, but you'll see it in future posts!
A glove box!
Some sewing pamphlets
 I finally got a proper jewelry box!! I feel so grown up, haha!
And a big box of sewing notions and patterns. I'll touch on this one at a later post, and maybe sell some of the patterns that aren't Me.

TinyAngryCrafts SDVFM Singer sewing pamphlets

I got a BUNCH of lovely sewing pamphlets from Solanah a few months back, and I'll talk about them in a future post. These are also by Mary Brooks Picken for Singer.

I got this super cute hat from a seller I've previously bought things from before. She told me she's very happy this hat is going to me, and each time she sees straw purses, she thinks of me. I shoulda gave her my card. Ah well, next one!

Here's a quick one of me in the hat.

TinyAngryCrafts SDVFM jewelry box

I am so excited to have a proper jewelry box. I like how this one is, it has hooks for necklaces!

This little glove box was something I've needed for a bit. As I am now having a small growing collection of gloves, I need a better place for them.

I like the box still had its label on it. I tried to search for this company, and it seems they made a lot of glove boxes and stockings boxes in LA in the 30's and 40's.

I am glad I was able to share my love for flea markets with a good friend. Megan left with some cute items, and really enjoyed herself. And she told me how the flea markets are in The Netherlands, and... well my passport is still valid, and she speaks Dutch, and I wanna go now.

Knitting Break

Sometimes I go back to my roots.
Knitting is one of my relaxing hobbies, and I'm glad I know how to do it. When I get stressed out from sewing, and school work, I kick back and pull out some needles and yarn.

Now I'm working on a sweater I started last year I believe? It's gonna be another colorwork piece, and I sadly lost my original plans for it, but I'm making do.

The needles are size 2.75mm, and it's fingering weight yarn. I've worked with both previously to make socks, but this is my first time using such small yarn to make something wearable! Needles to say I'm a bit nervous. But, if I mess up, I can rip back and start over!

One of my knitting tips I can leave you with is something to keep your hands nice and happy. When working with wool and other natural fiber yarns, it'll leave your hands scratchy and sad, I use Rose Salve (and when I do get it, I have one for my hands, the other for lips, and they last!)

Are any of you knitting in the middle of the summer? What are you working on?
