margolily treasure hunt

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011


 One of the biggest treats for margolily is all the gorgeous treasures I am lucky enough to work with! Here are some pieces collected by magpie brides for their bouquets and headpieces. Just now I am on the hunt for crystal, pearl and rhinestone vintage jewellery…a weekend ahead of the best kind of shopping and rummaging I think!  I popped in to new place Ruby Tuesday’s Vintage Boutique last week and came away with a perfect gold brooch for a bridal haircomb and also a fandango pair of cherry red high heels for Margolily herself!  Glasgow Vintage and Second Hand shops look out!

margolily is a winner

I won a camera! Very excited and now taking photos of everything I see. I will resist splashing exclusive pussy cats in boxes photos everywhere and you can have a peek at some new pieces I’ve been working on for a supremely stylish bridal party. Mother of the bride in mink and pearl alongside her beautiful daughter in lace and new margolily vintage pearl hairpins!

Now back to occasional sewing and cat in box photography xx

margolily and giant flowers

Saturday, May 7th, 2011

A week spent pondering the glorious and outrageous headpieces worn by guests at the Royal Wedding!

Loving Queenie’s primrose yellow! Adore Miriam Gonzalez Durantez in her coral flowered turban, plan to make myself something similar for the host of weddings I have this Summer! It may detract from the giant bump in the enormous maxi dress! This is it – my silk flower making course of last year is coming back to me! Giant flowers to accentuate a giant bump! Here we go! Just finished such a treat for a beuatiful gold wedding in Surrey, inspired by gorgeous Paula’s margolily headpiece of last Summer xx
