Crowning Glory [Crafty]

12 Sep

Surely I’m not the only one who from time to time thinks, “mama needs a headdress!” Crazy statement head wear has been calling out to me lately, and due to what seems to be the universe’s signal to act now, I think I’m going to make something happen this weekend.

flash mob

Today on Oh Joy! I saw a link to the new ban.do couture collection, Black Label. There was a pom pom headband explosion that took me straight back a couple weeks to the KEXP/Bumbershoot Music Lounge performance by Niki and the Dove that I’d seen.

Malin was rocking this silk floral headdress that made my heart skip a beat. To the soundtrack of their set, I sat in the front row gawking and wondering how/when I could make one for myself. The issue of when I would ever wear it was secondary. (Any suggestions you have on that front would be greatly appreciated.)

It just so happens I have a million (100) leftover yarn poms I made for a friend’s baby shower sitting in a box just waiting for a new purpose. See some below in all their furry blurry glory. Their time has come!

    Oh, Sarah! You always know how to make me LOL! That was your best opener yet!

    Suggestions:
    1. Concerts (Do the youngin’s still call them that?)
    2. Any event/special occassion, such as–oh, like BABY SHOWERS (Hint, hint!)

      Ha! Yes, as in touch as I am with the whippersnapper set, I do believe they’re still “concerts” or “shows,” and I could probably make that happen. Even with my crazy accessories, I’m not sure I’m that bold, though.

      This baby shower suggestion. Now that’s something with people I know and who know what they’re getting into with me — that could definitely work.
