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.

    That headband looks super cute on you! Always nice to cross something off your “Things I Did Not Buy” list 🙂

    That headband is so cool! I’m terrified of buying headbands in case they end up pinching – my scalp is very picky – but one of those might be worth it.
