Remember when I mentioned a few months back that somebody was getting married?
Yes, yes…while the nuptials haven’t quite taken place, the party has been presented their headwear for the big day so I am free to share them with you, my little doormice (all 8 of you!)

And here is the bridal piece, in its full glory. I’m very proud of this one; the tatted lace base was provided by the bride and blends with the rabbit perfectly. I am eager to see photos of all the beautiful girls wearing these on the Big Day!
