I dressed pretty simply last Wednesday because I wanted my new favorite purchase to really shine:
Yup, I got a GORGEOUS fern-leaf headband, handmade by Betsie Withey and sold in The Faerie Market, her Etsy shop for crazy-awesome fiber art. (You may recognize it from one of my previous Things I Did Not Buy entries–guess I can scratch this one off the list.)
Seriously, though. So pretty. And it arrived lovingly tucked into an equally-pretty decorated package, along with detailed care instructions and a sweet written note from its creator. It made me feel so special, and was a super-nice pick-me-up on a tired Tuesday afternoon. It’s also really comfortable–the wire band doesn’t dig into the sides of my head like most plastic ones do–and, as I said on Twitter, it makes me feel like a forest princess.
Oh yeah, and I wore some shoes or whatever. But the headband! THE HEADBAND. Tia may be getting one of Betsie’s creations for her birthday this year whether she likes it or not.
