I don’t think I’d met anyone who don’t like Alice in Wonderland.

Well, I never heard it before, but it sounds uncommon nonsense.

hat tilt!

Zara Carpenter hails from a little town of Chatham sitting idyllic in the garden of Kent, England. She makes hat. Pretty hats put together with finds from her travels. If you like these, it’s almost certain that you like artists and writers like Mark Ryden, Edward Gorey, Oscar Wilde, Lewis Carroll and Angela Carter too, all of whom she draws her inspiration from.

At twilight, nature is not without loveliness, though perhaps its chief use is to illustrate quotations from the poets. – Oscar Wilder

Is it any wonder most of her ideas pop from the natural muses around her at night?

I wonder what I can use for my photoshoot. I had just spent the better part of my Saturday creating my props! and I want more! I love the little details like the wrist watch on the guy’s jacket and the bouquet… and of course, the cute top hat! Now, any ideas, please feel free to drop them in my comment!

Oh my ears and whiskers, how late it’s getting! Though slowly but surely as we start to put things together, I just confirmed my batchgirl Jan to be my actual day photographer! I just love her eye for details and beauty.
