My fantasy HATS … and Headdresses… Magical creations, each one is a small and unique work of art. Some are made entirely with natural elements and flowers like fairy wreaths Others are for city wear, weddings and special occasions. Created with love and and embellished with silk faux flowers, pearls and threads they are made to order and each is a a celebration of the joys of spring… a Chapeau Fantastique !
Willing me towards her, her grey eyes lit the darkness aglow… Snow kept falling steadily all around us. I saw we were not alone… Her companion appeared beside her and fixed his eyes upon me. Looking up I saw a circle of many eyes reflecting the light, behind him. A mantle of grey hung from her shoulders and she wore a crown of white antlers and pearls. She fixed her gaze upon me and suddenly a warm glow entered my blood stream, pulling me deeper into her inner vortex; mesmerizing me in my tracks.
I could feel the eyes of the entire pack gazing with her, all of them blinking in unison; flickers of gold in the night.
It was Embolic. I had come out to pour warm ewe’s milk into the snow to feed the earth for her awakening in the coming spring. My dreams were in the milk… They were all written on white papers that I had shredded finely. Mixing them with my prayers, I had immersed them in the warm milk sweetened with honey… Wandering out into the night holding my warm pot of milk I searched for an auspicious place to plant my dreams. She had been watching me and following me silently.
With one nod and a sweeping gesture, the pack circled in and surrounded me…

Dizzy , I talk to trees and daisies , awestruck by the miracle of a new spring , one more time .Each spring is a miracle to me , and reborm, ideas flow through my head , swirling until I hear them like melodies , and I want to dance ; but they all want to fly . They expand in every direction , butterflies and bees …. My delight expresses itself in my love of creating beauty . I paint , I sculpt , and – I love to make magical Hats .
And what more of a delight – my strange fascination with – Hats .
I believe in Hats . Hats that can change the way you look to the world , and way you think , and the way the world sees you . Hats are objects of power , dreams and secrets are held there if they are special enough , and fantasy hats are the best if one’s intent is to make magic . .
Fantasy hats are always stitched by hand and created with love . . they have spells and incantations sewn in with their stitches . Fetishes and jewels hidden in silk seams . They are like visible dreams and spells put out to the world when one wears one … and can have great power … as every young girl knows , and as does every witch , and the wise shaman ….
I love to wear , and to create Hats .
When one takes a chance – and steps out of a comfortable anonymous zone , one opens the doors …. Suddenly the veils fade , reality changes , so subtly , welcoming whatever dreams you have been dreaming to step into your life …. A hat can transform its’ wearer …. i opening doors , casting spells , and bring magic into your life .

small , but eloquent Where would bigness be without the small ?
It is the detail that brings the smile , the finishing touch … the sense of whimsy .
The detail brings sparkle , the light in the twinkle of an eye … the curl in the corner of a mouth … A love letter hidden in a bodice , and springtime reflected in a young girl’s eyes … and a little hat – on a pretty girl’s head , especially in springtime , is a delicious delight . a little thing , but such an eloquent statement … A wonderful bit of whimsy … a lace collar , a jewel , or an artwork of hat speaks , sings , and has a presence and personality all its own .
A small detail , and a small package perhaps , but with it comes amazing style …A silk satin chapeau , pearl embellished , trimmed with ostrich feathers ,hand made and fit for an heiress from the Great Gatsby Era , this little detail creates magic as soon as it is put on . Perfect in lieu of a veil for a very modern retro bride …. and for a Twenties style , Gatsby influenced wedding ensemble .
Available by custom order directly from NatashaVon ,or on Etsy https://www.etsy.com/listing/150145681/silk-rose-and-ostrich-gatsby-wedding
Photographed and styled by the designer , and modeled here by Julia Fairchild.
I love the Twenties style and era , and especially the beaded and embroidered gowns . They have been an inspiration in my work for years … and I also love to sit down , an embroider myself … having learned from my mother and grandmother as a small girl
It is like a meditation , and gives a sense of peace , and calms the spirit . http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/34381-natasha-von-rosenschilde-designs-dresses-great-gatsby-style/
The garments are time less beauties , and are art works in themselves , so unique , and art never goes out of fashion … These dresses are perfect for a fantasy of a wedding , o an evening of magic dancing the night away in a gown that clings like warm , molten metal as if hugs your body in motion , and heats up from your skin . .. The the touch of teh glass beads hug every curve , and touch of the dress feels like a caress …Related articles

A Bed of Roses
Thinking of you , I close my eyes , and I am lying back on a bed of roses ,
Their petals caress my skin ,
a sacrament of bliss .
I sigh ,
the murmur of love escapes from my heart ,
juice escapes from the flower
and throbbing between my thighs ;
sweet , like honey ,
my crystal nectar
for the bee.
I dream a moment longer ,
And feel your kiss
upon my lips .
Open to receive you ,
a sacrament of bliss ,
nectar exchanged from your lips
to mine ,
Your curls falling over my face like tendrils from a sacred vine .
encircling me with the sweetest bondage ,
for this ,
from , ” My Unchained Heart ”
a compilation of poetry and prose ,
copyright , Natasha von Rosenschilde , 2013
I want to write your name in blazing arabesques upon the sky . I see it now , before my eyes ; the letters of your name – huge curling tendrils ; silver and black on sky blue pink , painted with infinity . The letters become Arabic calligraphy ‘ alive and moving , writing the names of all the lovers we have had since forever started , all the lovers who have lived , all the lovers who have died for love . And each name turns into a paisley from a cosmic egg ;
a psychedelic Shamballa all written on that sky .
One paisley swirls , changing colors , and becoming another ; merging with another name, and they all keep on swirling into each other ; creating new universes as they meet , dance , and multiply .
I close my eyes ,
In the end ,
they all become your name .
in praise of your beauty .
Forever emblazoned on the sky .
Your name is love .
And all sounds become one .
The song of the stars ,
your name .
And I can hear it
Throughout the heavens ,
As it resounds
Through my heart ,
And the angels all sing it ,;
Your name is love ,
And you are my lover ,
Our dance makes the Earth smile ,
And the heavens
and the guitar sings .
Fractals , I believe ….
My body reflects them ;
I am all made up of fractals .
The paisleys now swirl inside of me as well , and I continue to dance for you .
Swirling , the movement is a genie and takes over my body .
I must remember to light candles
for the souls
of the dancers
and all the lovers
who have danced,
and who have died
in the name
Our eyes are dazzled and blinded when we see red … The color speaks to us of love and passion , warming the chill of February with its glowing fire, as does a red silk rose on a black fox hat worn by an elegant gypsy Black lace adorned with antique jet and rubies drapes her shoulders . . Red roses speak of passionate hearts and love on fire … The red silk skirt speaks of a wild rich sensuality , and brings us to the contemplatio of desire . Is it the beauty of the color red that provokes passion and desire , or is it desire itself that makes us see red .
A portrait of a lady in red and black … mysterious , modern and elegant , yet somehow timeless and tribal . Black lace and velvet, red silk billowing in a wide ruched skirt over black leather , high heeled boots , and a black fox , Russian style hat lined with red satin , embellished with a red silk rose … Classic romance celebrated for Valentine’s Day by a true modern romantic ; an elegant gypsy .
A joyous Solstice and Holiday Season to all , and a Glowing Yule .. keep the faith .. and keep shining out the light …with love .
Julie , in the sky with amber and golden jewels … a hand carved honey amber heart , encased in silver arabesques and curls , sits in her fingers , capturing the light , and shining it outwards … On her finger , she wears a golden Lion , hand made and one of a kind , a sculpture in gold made by an artist’s hand , and cast . Pearls and coral jewels bedeck her crown , and a young deer’s antlers gathered by the native hunters in the forests of Quebec pay homage to the woodland Goddess who protects all animals and woodland spirits .
