Sandy Beige and Red Flower Sash

 Handmade floral sash for a little princess.

The flower is made of chic nude fabric petals with a touch of ivory tulle and has a lustrous red bead centre while the dainty tulle leaves are ivory and red.

The ribbon that the flower is attached to is fairly long, so that it can be tied into a bow and have long flowing ends. 

And it's sturdy cotton so that it can be worn time and again without showing wear.

DIY Santa Snow Globe

 This DIY Santa snow globe is our very first Christmas craft this year!

We usually make them with water but this year we're trying them without and I have to say that I like how the fake snow sticks to the glass and makes it look like Santa's in a blizzard.....

Making Headbands

I'm still making flower headbands. 

 Usually, the more I make, the bigger and more complex they seem to get.

 I start small and dainty and bit by bit they've been trying to morph into something more like these spectacular D&G flower headbands.

But most are much more minimalist still, with a single delicate bloom on a  slim metalic headband.

I've got more to photograph soon and share.

Golden Shimmer Flower Headband

My newest flowers are made with a pretty special fabric that shimmers and shines in a quiet riot of gold, black, bronze and brown.
To offset the glitz, they have a sombre -but lustrous- black bead centre.

And I've been making headbands with them.

I'm attaching them to antique bronze metalic headbands.
Some have one flower on them, some have two.

I've already given a couple away to two of the sweetest little girls!

And I have to say that I love the way they look worn.... 
Just right for the upcoming holiday season.

Flower Bouquet

These flowers were all part of an order that I sent out a while back.
It's like a bunch of some of my very favourite flowers.

These are huge and fluffy -but light as a feather- and I love the ombre gradation of gold to the palest yellow.

This little coral flower hair clip with the unexpected flecks of gold and yellow is such a joyous pop of colour that it always makes my day.

And these teal hair pins! I just adore the deep teal colour and the curly texture of the petals!

October Seas

This is what October looks like so far.
It is still sunny and beautiful but it's decidedly cool. 
It's pretty great as far as autumn goes.

Lilac and Brown Flower Headband

This was a custom order for Jennifer. 
For her beautiful little girl, in fact, who is going to be a flower girl next week in a rustic country themed wedding. 

The colours we were working with were lilac, cream and brown and these are the resulting flowers.
I made a large flower headband and a smaller flower corsage by attaching the flowers to a plush cream-coloured cotton ribbon.

And these are the flowers before I attached them to the ribbons.
I liked them so much I may make one for my winter coat lapel.....
