old hat, new caps






lovely new/old hat arrived last Sunday in a bin-bag full of clothes, Autumn is good like this, generous with nuts and fruits, and clothes it would seem; as soon as I walked by the studio GhostBird called out to me: 'hi there, nice hat, d'ya think you could make something for me as well?' 'like what?' 'like that oak leave twig you brought back with you this morning, how 'bout sticking some pretty feathers in there as well!' He looks very fine indeed and can carry off anything I think





 Upon which many other gang members wanted a hat as well, 'Fancy Dress, hurray Saskia, oh yes let's!' So I fiddled with these tiny acorn caps and fine feathers and tried to find heads and hats to match; I'm afraid I didn't have enough to go round, and some heads were just too small....however they enjoy admiring each other just as much as having a hat themselves; here's a picture of some of them..... getting all of them together and then sit still was quite a challenge...perhaps another day
Found a pair of legs in the garden the other day, I thought the OBK might want to use them, but he said No. He said he was now so used to his stick body he wouldn't be able to walk about on legs anymore, better give them to somebody who can still use them he said. We will wait and see who arrives on our doorstep then.

Thoroughly charmed after midnight, and just what the doctor would have ordered for this gloomy Fall Manhattan moment. I've begun to rummage 'round my own stash of stuff for change of season. Wonder who will come to claim those fine legs.

Bird feet or antlers or pen marks...they are wickedly calligraphic. Everyone, especially you, looks dashing in your hats.
