Take10 - Crown & Glory

Photobucket

Photobucket
This month's challenge involved us selecting something from hand-made accessories designer Crown & Glory. We were each able to choose something from the shop or request a custom-made piece. I dug out an old photograph I had sourced awhile back from my inspiration folder and presented Sophie, from Crown & Glory, with my idea. What she came back with (in record time) was exactly what I had in mind, a beautiful pink/peach floral headband, perfectly whimsical and feminine.

Check out what the rest of the girl's chose this month also, giving a very warm welcome to our newest member Lucy who will now be taking over from Sabine - Susie (Take-out in Couture)~Sherin (Hi-Fashion)~ Ellie (Pretty Much Penniless) ~ Vicki (Magpie Girl) ~ Sarah (We Shop)~Harriet (Where's Harriet) ~ Lucy (Snippets of Shiny Thoughts) ~ Jen (A Little Bird) ~ MJ (Dreaming Spires)...
