Heralding Spring


I've always wanted to wear flowers in my hair, but never really had the chance. I was a bridesmaid in my 30s and a circlet headband wasn't quite the done thing.

So, discovering this beautiful idea from www.decoratersnotebook.wordpress.com that I came across via Laura and Lou was a bit of a childhood dream come true. 

Making a spring or primavera crown is so easy and a chance to indulge in your feminine side if you like. In medieval times young women wore crowns of May blossom in their hair to mark the changing of the seasons and I really enjoyed marking that in a little way.

When the showers stopped today I for foraged in the garden for ivy, narcissi, primroses and primulas and spent a lovely time making and snapping. Now my teeny blooms are on the kitchen table to enjoy. Happy days x

Very pretty - beautiful colours. I have to make a hat for the Easter Bonnet parade at school. I was thinking of a comical nest with my bird puppet in but something like this would be so much prettier! x

What a truly beautiful announcement of Spring appears in these photographs! How well you wear the crown, too. I particularly like the way the edges of the photos show additional flowers in your garden.

It really suits you! It also made me feel very spring like, we have a churchyard just over the road that is awash with primroses right now and I think they are such a cheerful flower. Daffodils will always attract big smiles, but primroses give you a lovely gentle feeling like we're coming out of hibernation. Antonia x
