The best part of my job? Making hair adornments for my friends as they wed their true loves 💕
Flowers are always necessary 💐 #thisisclassic
Sweet dreams of sweet escapes 🥀🌙 (📸: Pinterest)
I am forever in awe of those women around the world who choose to fight against impossible odds for the chance of a hope - to be female and free. I am forever grateful to my Mother for teaching me how to create with my hands and to turn that into a means of independence. And for making sure I appreciate how lucky I am to have the opportunity and freedoms that I experience living in this time and place. For throughout history and across this planet it’s a rare thing to be female and free. She sent me this quote the other day...“We are the descendants of the wild women you forgot. We are the stories you thought would never be taught. They should have checked the ashes of the women they burned alive. Because it takes a single wild ember to bring a whole wildfire to life.” – Nikita Gill
It’s quite dreary out, but I’m cozy in my office working by candlelight with rain tapping my windows. All the while wishing I was in Venice... (image source: @rosaliapark)
How breath taking is this glimpse of @svetlanatitov wearing her #gardensofwhimsy crowned veil?
Honestly, what better place could there be to make flower crowns all day? Life, infinite inspiration from nature, quiet. Such a contrast to living in a tower amongst a busy city. Someday I’ll build one...when my transformation into an awkward hermit is complete 😂
This is where I spend most of my waking hours. Offices hours are long and mainly consist of 💐 glueing, weaving, wiring, soldering, listening to podcasts (any recommendations?) and probably thinking about food.
Reminiscing about warmer weather and frolicking in full 18th century gowns with @courtneyann_brown
Finally had the opportunity to see these in person. So many intricacies of costume design to drool over ✨ #downtonabbeyexhibition
Merry Christmas Eve from my furry elves ✨🎄✨
One of my favorite wildflower combs is back in stock for a limited time! Now is the perfect time to treat yourself since I have joined Etsy’s cyber week sale and my entire shop is 20% off (link in bio)
