Morning lovely People!
Hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend. My friend Alex and I managed to chase the sunshine and spent the last 2 days of the jubilee weekend in the Lake District climbing Scafell Pike. The sun shone all day and as a result the views from the top were amazing, plus we managed to squeeze in a few beers in the last hours of the sunshine after the climb which was just lovely! If you love trekking and enjoy a bit of a scramble then Scafell Pike will be right up your street – it’s a beautiful part of England.
Today we bring you the genius designs of Migonne Handmade. Another Etsy treasure, Jennifer Wood (creator of Migonne Handmade) designs the most beautiful bridal headpieces and accessories. Each piece has been inspired by her career in floral design and love for embellishment, decorative forms and above all, pretty things.
I think you’ll agree that, after viewing the oh so pretty images below, each piece has such an endearing romantic classical feel but is also very different to anything you have seen before. From earthy designs that echo the days of Maid Marion to vintage lace pieces that would not look out of place on a 1920’s bride – there is a beautiful piece for every style of wedding dress.
Here’s some of our favourites.
Keep your eye out for the cherry blossom shoe clips – they rock!
