  1. Melissa, I love this current theme of hats. These 1:6th dolls are gorgeous. I have a weak spot for Victoire. Her attitude is wonderful. The backdrop for her is interesting.

    I enjoy your site.

    Thank you,


    1. Many thanks Don! I do love quirky, whimsical hats. The backdrop for Victoire is a fashion illustration by Eric from an old book. Melissa

  2. Oh, the utter variety of textures, colors, and cheerfulness with which these ladies can dazzle the world! I adore how the colors in the chapeaux highlight the beauty in each woman's face! The forecast for Fall is pretty indeed! --Monsieur Érik

    1. I very much appreciate your lovely comment Monsieur Erik. Thank you! Melissa
