Crown Of Flowers


 Floral Crown: Made by me
Singlet: Vintage, Thrifted.

Today has been one of those lovely lazy days that I adore. Caleb and I packed a picnic lunch and drove up the hills to relax and enjoy the sun, then I spent the afternoon making this flower crown that has been on my mind for longer than I can remember. Hopefully next time I will be able to make a more delicate piece with little blossom flowers.  I have special a surprise brewing for my Trade Me  followers that I have been working on for weeks. All will be revealed in my next shop update. Oooo!

  9. who's the talented one now? this is so pretty!
    i'm following your lovely blog too. i relate sooo much to competitive thrifting, i get the exact same way with getting bummed out when ANY hipsters are in the shop and freaking out thinking they'll get the good stuff before me. it's a problem x

  17. Great work! It really goes with your new hair, also the colours suit you perfectly.
