These hair trinkets are made from floral parts left over from between the 40s and the 50s. Not long ago, the principal of a hat-making school in Philadelphia passed on and they discovered a stunning collection of beautiful floral pieces kept away in the school’s cupboards and drawers, made in Germany from a time long, long ago. Then, not long ago, too, we got a tiny part out of this precious collection and I turned the sad, loose parts into either time-preserved gems or time-ravaged ruins: you decide.

Time sort of stands still when my gaze lands on their rich color and soundless stories.

Our tree made from four hangers, twine and wrapping what seemed to be raspberry plastic fruits!

Honestly, there’s no other way I would be happy with a tree in the store.
