Here's the scoop...I use to sell hair accessories and shoes in boutiques. Then I got pregnant with the triplets & it was a done deal. Well back when I was trying to come up with a name to call my little endeavor, I thought I had settled with one, until my sister called me the next morning saying that she had a dream about what to name my little thing. She started laughing and said that it should be "Madame Pumphrey". I thought it was a little silly sounding but as the day wore on it kind of grew on me. The name presented a good mix of refinement & whimsy. I think the two words that establish my vision would be "granny chic". Modern glamour mixed with vintage handicraftness. Pretty much all of the pieces that I make have been and are adorned with a sparkly jewel....hence the glamour. Other elements like vintage trims, ribbons, netting, tulle, felt & appliques bring in an element of edge & crafty-ness.
Well I am so excited to share the below pictures my friend Michelle from Sweet Moments Design took. Perhaps I've mentioned her before:-) Honestly I had never thought about doing a full on photo shoot just for some little clips and bands but one day as I was on the phone with my dear friend Michelle I just blurted out, "Want to take some pictures of my hair accessories". She replied by saying "yah when". I then said, "How about in a couple days". "OK", she said & that was that. Rather than taking just a quick couple of shots of the product we opted for a FUN, creative, image setting shoot. I lined up a blonde model and a dark model (who also happen to be dear friends). At the last minute my little dark haired friend couldn't make it so of course who else was going to step in, tis I. Almost every single outfit that I brought were vintage and purchased @ thrift stores. One of the dresses only cost one dollar bill. I love the thrift store.
Honestly when Michelle sent me the photos I couldn't believe what a beautiful job she did. I think somebody should hire her to shoot for a creative catalog or something. If you have a vision or need somebody that does have vision, then perhaps you should consider her for your next photography session. She loves to travel too. I've heard she would even consider going to Hawaii just to take your pictures...if she must. If you want to see more of Michelle's work then go here.
Well without out further ado I present Madame Pumphrey the Etsy store.
I started out last night by posting 11 items. I have quite a few more that I need to post so if you don't see something that tickles your fancy then check back.
Again thank you so very much for your interest, nice words and support. It means the world. Man I tell you what, every time I've got the blues I'm going to do a give away.
P.S. - To whoever bought the below, thank you for being my very first Etsy sale. It will be in the mail with love.
