Dreaming Twiggy's tete à chapeau!!

As I wrote some time ago, one of my favorite pastime is to spend weekend in flea markets, looking for amazing and unique old-fashoned treasuries. Yet I omitted to tell you that, above all, my dream is to find some day a Twiggy "tete à chapeau". This dummy head, used to displays hats in fashion stores, is often called "Twiggy" because it very similar to the face to Twiggy, the famous 1960s-1970s model. It would be really a dream for me to come one day to a flea market and to gather one of these heads...

... waiting for the arrive of that day, when a lucky me will be able to bring at home it for few euros, this cute item gave me inspiration to produce a wide range of little stuffs. For instance, I hand carved a rubber stamp with the shape of Twiggy with which I've then produced a necklace with shrink plastic. I have also remake a some of little dolls-necklaces, that you can find on my etsy. Finally, I've taken decision also to write a tutorial, with which you will be able to make your customized handmade retro doll necklace! You can find it on etsy as well. I hope you like all these things!!!

They're great the Twiggy heads!!
Last year on holiday in southern France, i saw a few in a pharmacist's shop, they looked beautiful and were used as decoration! I've regret it ever since that i didn't go into the shop to ask if they couldn't sell one!! We're going back there this summer and this time i'm going to ask!! Hopefully they're still there!
