more flowers in her hair

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. It seems to be the time of year when everyone starts traveling. I honestly think I am one of two people I know who are not out of town this weekend. In other words, I had plenty of time on my hands the past two days which leads me to the following post...

I've been in the middle of making a bunch of 1920s inspired hair accessories with feathers, beads, lace, you name it (which, incidentally, I will try to post pictures of if I ever do finish them). I decided to go the DIY route because a) I could never find anything in stores until recently and b) once I did start seeing things like feathered headbands and beaded head-wraps they were all quite pricey and not exactly what I wanted anyway. And so, when I came across this rather fitting post on the cherry blossom girl last week I was further inspired. As you may know from similar posts, I am already a strong believer in the hair + flower combination and so it was logical for me to go a step further with my current obsession... a fabulous flower crown




more pictures on my chictopia shortly. cheerio!

Ooh, those are lovely. I'm addicted to head pieces like this. I wish more people wore them. :)

Your crown looks lovely! I saw that post on Alix's blog, but there's no way I can handmade anything, it's just awful, no talent for these practical things at all, so bad, as I LOVE hair accessories. I hope you get to finish all the accessories you have in mind, and don't forget to post them here. It sounds wonderful what you're doing:)

Wow, that is so pretty! It would be so perfect for the summer. My best friend wore something like it on her wedding day and it was amazing....
