I’m resurrecting this post (4 Jan 2014) with an update on afternoon tea at Neverland Tea Salon. I had afternoon tea (I refuse to call it High Tea) at Neverland Tea Salon last November with my friend. Four years ago,... Continue reading →
It’s the first Sunday post-Once Upon A Time S5, so I would like to cheer up my fellow international OUAT-fans with another OUAT destination to visit if they’re ever in Vancouver, British Columbia: Fort Langley. In my World of OUAT... Continue reading →
With two days to go until Once Upon a Time S5 premieres, I’d like to introduce my fellow Oncers to the period dramas in which some of our recurring, former, and new cast members have been or will be. The... Continue reading →
*NOTE: I apologise in advance for the low-quality photos. These were taken three years ago with my phone camera. You may recognise the interiors from watching Twilight, The Flash, and most recently, in Once Upon A Time. The main ‘waiting... Continue reading →
Today I am dressed up as Belle from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and Once Upon a Time. I’m surprised I never dressed up as one of my favourite princesses in the last 20 something years. I’ve been Snow White,... Continue reading →
I’ve been meaning to post my photos of ABC’s Once Upon A Time (OUAT) locations for a year now and what better time than now, when the cast & crew are back to film S3? 🙂 This post is dedicated to... Continue reading →
Today I am going to introduce my first hat that I made with The Saucy Milliner. 🙂 In November 2011, I blocked a fur felt hat on a vintage Art Deco (1920’s) asymmetrical hat block (the ‘helmut’ cloche, I believe).... Continue reading →
Mad about Hats!
Today's (Oct 17) Vancouver Sun article features hats by The Saucy Milliner, a local milliner was creates couture hats and fascinators for women and recently, children (The Saucy Pups line).
These hats are fur felt hats blocked on new and vintage wood blocks in various shapes and sizes. Everything is hand-sewn and NO gluegun is EVER used for trimming the hats. Lots of hardwork is put in precision cutting and sewing that every owner of a Saucy Milliner hat is sure to have the best atop their head. The same goes for fascinators made of horsehair, sinamay, crin, parisisal, etc. No gluegun. This is what differentiates the Saucy Milliner from other couture milliners based in Vancouver.
Furthermore, for those of you who watch Once Upon A Time, she was the real 'Mad Hatter' who created the Mad Hatter magic portal top hat. If that top hat isn't something you can imagine yourself wearing, you may have liked her Princess Abigail riding hat in S1. ;) Wasn't it beautiful?

I know you will love her creations as much as I do! :)

Magic returned to ABC (or CTV for us in Canada) last Sunday, 30 Sept, after a summer hiatus from Storybrooke in Once Upon A Time (henceforth referred to as OUAT). Now that all of Storybrooke remembers who they really are (i.e.... Continue reading →
