Butterfly Headband

I figured out that while I am up posting so late here it is actually 10:00 a.m. Paris time, thus another reason why I should live there someday.

Today I wore a handmade leather butterfly headband from Crimson & Clover boutique (http://crimsonandcloverboutique.blogspot.com/). They have really affordable vintage clothing in Sacramento. I believe this headband is made by one of the owners Nicole of Flaming Hag Folkwear (http://flaminghagfolkwear.blogspot.com/).

It reminds me of vintage leather hair barrettes that my mom gave me. Here is a detail shot:

I’ll be visiting the store tomorrow to try to find a necklace for the Neo-Crocker event and excited to see what they have. The other owner Kara of Porkchop Rules (http://porkchoprules.blogspot.com/) makes beautiful necklaces from recycled charms. You’ll see some great examples on her blog.

  4. Hey I forgot to tell you- I have never painted the bottom of a pair of shoes before, but what a great idea! I bet if you painted them with something like nail polish and then bought those non stick pads to put on the toe and heel you’d be golden. Let me know how it goes!
