I will be ordering hats&Bonnets from America and offer these for a special pre-order price! All hats are unadorned and can be decorated to your wishes. The hats will be shipped from the Netherlands.
I already have 30 pre-orders, so it will be a while before I order hats again. All hats that have not been pre-ordered will be offered up for sale on an event I am attending on the 14th of October (in the Netherlands) and afterwards in my webshop, for the regular price. Don't wait too long with placing your order! You can do so by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org

The straw Bonnet is suitable for the Regency Period. The red Bonnet too, as well as the early Victorian period. The small Bergere is suitable for the 18th century (although someone ordered one for an Edwardian outfit) and the big Bergere can be folded in different styles suitable for both the Regency and 18th century.

The Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery on Tchoupitoulas Street // @old77_hotel #nola#hotel#chandlery
So glad we stayed at the Old 77 earlier this month. Picture a charming 18th-century warehouse building turned hotel and chandlery, complete with a warm Louisiana contemporary design, and well-curated local goods. Amazing accommodations, friendly staff, and a great café @toutla and restaurant @comperelapin.
[The Last of the Mohicans. 1992]
Based on the novel by James Fenimore Cooper, published 1826.
Mahican, their name means "the people of the waters that are never still." Also known as River Indians by the invading Dutch and English, the 'Mohicans' were located in what is now known as the upper Hudson River valley.
A highly romanticised version of the feud between native dwellers and foreign settlers, Daniel Day-Lewis was, however, a very solid investment as the go-between, Hawkeye.
Chinoiserie! 18th Century Europe was mad for Chinoiserie – Mad and as crazy as the 17th C Dutch Tulip Craze - and I still am! Every country seemed to have their own version of an East India company bringing back small, valuable cargo such as porcelain, fabric and wallpapers. Even the King of Sweden in his northern icy post was not immune. Adolfo Frederick built a Chinese pavilion as a birthday gift for Queen Lovisa Ulrika in 1754! Roco-co-co-co and grand, the pavilion was a showcase for all things Chinese. Porcelain vases, life sized Chinese figures, boxes, jades and paintings dominated every room. Extraordinary yellow lacquer panels were inset into the walls of the - yes! You guessed it - yellow drawing room. Lacquer was a complete novelty to Europeans – and China with her doors closed to all Westerners lent an exotic air to these Chinese treasures. Decorated walls done in the style of Pillement (proving France was really the trend setter yet again). The fantastical Chinoiserie decoration of the green salon is one of my absolute favourite rooms. As fabulous as the pavilion is - you really must plan your visit to coincide with a performance in the tiny 18th C opera house. Candlelit performances with original instruments and stage decorations are truly a wonder. #DrottningholmPalace#ChinesePavilion#Chinoiserie#ChinaTrade#Pillement#18thCentury#RococoPalace#Interiors#DesignerEye#Dècor#BlueAndWhiteDecor#RococoDecor#InstaChinoiserie#Decorator#HandsOfAWorker#GarrisonRousseau
There is a stained-glass window at St. Peter & Paul Parish Church, Olney, which depicts John Newton. We have a small reproduction at the museum. Many of our visitors take the short walk to the church afterwards to see the window and Newton's grave.
