The girl with flowers in her hair...

 

What is it about a girl with flowers in her hair? I absolutely adore it. It's kind of Maria Von Trapp meets Marie Antionette at a Grateful Dead show. Anyway, a sweet young friend of mine was going to her first prom last weekend so I made this for her hair and she couldn't have looked more beautiful. I would have loved to put her in a peony and confederate jasmine laden crown but I got the vibe that might be a little over the top. You know highschool, making a statement makes you stand out, and standing out makes other girls jealous, and making girls just the right amount of jealous is seriously tricky. So I went with a smaller clip-in piece made from a gorgeous rose out of Katie's yard, some dusty miller, lamb's ear, scabiosa and jasmine from mine and a couple dreamy aubergine ranunculous I scored at Davis. Love...
