Fig Leaf


The perfect headcovering for church!  This ‘Grand Coiffe’ is from Little Huggs Historic Reenactment Costumes.


This is a swimsuit from Veiled by Design.   I know it looks nuts at first glance.  But look again.  They’re genius.

experimetal-on-etsy-criss-cross.jpg                                                         My favorite cross pendant was made by the very talented  ‘Experimetal <aka> vtakahashi.’  You can find her shop on etsy.  Oh — and that stone in the middle? — you can spin it!  How cool is that???                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                gottaoblongsuper06.jpg                  I am now the happy owner of one of these large sun-safe hats from GottaHavaHat.    The one I have (shown in the picture) is the Oblong Brimmed Super Sun Hat and it comes in some great colors (made out of Solarweave, which is a high tech solar protective fabric that has an “Excellent” UV protection rating of 40-50+; it’s nylon supplex, so it’s lightweight, breathable and dries quickly).  Note that she’ll line the underbrim with some beautiful cotton batik fabric — and you get to choose the one you like.                                                                                                                                                                        softhatscom2.jpg  Just in Time has some nice and comfy cotton hats.  They’re created for women who have lost their hair.  If you have hair, some of the styles might work better than others.  Send Just in Time an email if you have questions.                                                                                                          chemo-chicks-headwraps.gif Headwraps from Chemo Chicks.                                                                                          jerusalemtwiststep41.jpg has wonderful scarves — and they’ll show you how to tie them!                                                                                                                                     shellyadaptations4youturban.jpgThis is the Shelly turban from Adaptations, Inc.                                                  opa324547320_8a24108a68_m.jpg  Cerublu!  Need a fabulous crocheted hat?  Fiber artist Cerublu will make one for you!

  1. Thank you, Marysia! (I’m told by Asiunka on the Flickr group POLAND that these comments mean: “simply super idea” and “your website is great.”)

    I have no Polish. At all. Yet. :-)
