And now, for something completely different...

It's easy to get stuck in a creative rut, even when your craft is something as outlandish as tiny hats. Despite a seemingly endless pool of ridiculous inspiration from which to draw, in the past few months, my efforts have been dry, dull and tedious, to say the least. Rather than give in to the tiny hat block before me, I decided to branch out a little bit.

For the past month or so, I've been trying my hand at vintage-inspired headpieces. This new line, called MOTH (a softer acronym for Ministry of Tiny Hats) is an exercise in restraint for someone like me, who finds it difficult to stop at just one color scheme, idea or mood. (I tend to be a little all over the place, which can be good for creativity but bad for business.)

MOTH collection

In autumnal reds, yellows, browns and blues, these fabric head adornments are more versatile than your standard miniature hat, and certainly more wearable for the down-low fashion follower. These will be available starting next week at Clove in Midtown Atlanta, and eventually, on Etsy. Earlier this week, MOTH made its official debut at the W Hotel's DRINKSHOP bar for Clove's Fall Preview show, Har-Vest.

Look for more images of Clove's entire fall collection, coming soon from excellent Atlanta photog, Jeff Wolk.

On an unrelated note, Ministry of Tiny Hats is now on Twitter! Please follow me there!
