dandelion crown…
Posted in child's play, DIY, yellow January 9th, 2014 by pia


The other day Laly and I went for a wander and picked some dandelions as we strolled.


When we got back home I braided them together to form a crown, pushing the shorter stemmed flowers into the weave as I braided. We didn’t have enough for a full crown so I made it a half crown, attaching it to a torn piece of floral cotton fabric.


Small creations give me such delight at the moment. And to see them enjoyed and appreciated by my little one swells my heart.

    She looks like a little cherub, absolutely adorable. Dandelions seem a very long way away here in London…

    P.S. Dandelion is my daughter’s nickname. As you know, in French it means “teeth of the lion.” It’s very appropriate in her case! :)

    thank you so much Tara! I miss being there very much, I know how much we’d enjoy spending time together if I was still living there. Hope to visit later this year, I’ll let you know xx

    Beautiful photos Pia. My daughter has 20 month old twins, May and Alice, and I look forward to the summer months here in England, so I can create this beautiful look for them too.
