Vaarks on parade

Fed up being back at work after a long weekend? Let me make you smile…

To celebrate the coming of spring, there has been much silliness in Vaark Land. These are the contributions from Chez Snail to the Twitter Vaark Spring/Easter/Oestra bonnet parade:


First we have Arnoldo in his top hat


Next, Iolanthe in a more traditional bonnet


Then Rosalind in a fascinator inspired by Alexander McQueen’s 2008 spring collection (really)


Snailvaark in a classic


And, finally, Tali as a daffodil

And the group together:

You can check out more wonderful creations from my fellow vaark owners on our Pinterest board. Oh, and if you want to make your own mousevaark, Danielle’s pattern is available to buy here.

Did you do anything silly over the weekend?

  1. And when next feeling silly you can always aard some more 🙂

  2. This did indeed make me smile – thank you!

  3. Oh yes, I did something silly, but not quite as fun-silly as your vaarks! You will not be surprised to learn that it’s quilt and sewing based, and involves a deadine…. I find the button-on tails such fun!

    I’d like to know what you have been drinking and can I have some please?? 😀

  5. I did nothing near as fun as that! But then, I don’t have to go back to work either 🙂 All the headwear creations are wonderful.. I am particularly drawn to the Alexander MccQueen inspired topfer and would absolutely wear one should such a creation and a matching occasion ever collide!!

  6. That’s been the most fun I’ve had all day. Thank you. :)))

  7. My long weekend silliness was of the physical variety, hauling my aging frame up cliffs in the name of fun. Your craftiness is wonderfully daft and smile-inducing. 😀

  8. Thank you … what an antidote to the “news” I feel I must pay at least some attention to!

    • I am trying my best to avoid “The News” and when I do encounter it, I keep reminding myself of the wise words of my friend Sarah: ‘It’s not “The” News, it’s “Some” News’. Other News is available!

  9. Beautifully bonkers!

  10. They are all great, but I particularly like the daffodil outfit!

  11. Hahaha! Those are some stylish Vaarks! I can’t wait to see their teeny Hallowe’en costumes 🙂
