Friday Favorites

Another Friday! Yippee! We have Family Date Nights on Fridays which my girls look forward to immensely - it means spending Friday evenings snuggling on the couch after a dinner of comfort-food watching a light-hearted movie. It also means two whole days of "daddy stays" which is also a wonderful thing to look forward too.

Since my girls are the biggest focus of my life lately - we are going back to little girl items for my Friday Favorites. This group of items comes from the EtsyMom Team - to see more items from EtsyMom, feel free to click on the box to the right!

I love doing my girls hair. When I was a little girl, I would spend hours brushing and styling my dolls hair - I even have a book on how to style doll hair. A nice chunk of the blogs to the right are hair-do blogs - I read those every morning to see what to do to my "live dolls" hair. Its because I love doing my girls hair, that I started making hairbows to begin with! This post will be all about hair, more specifically wool-felt hair clips. These are clips that I don't know how to do but boy are they adorable!

First is a lovely Matroyshka hair clip from Neskat. How cute are these?! They come is several colors and the little doll print is just adorable. The hand-stitching around the edges really finish the clip off. Check out the whole shop for so many choices in hair clips, pacifier clips, bracelets and more!


Second is a perfect pair of Minnie Mouse ears felt clips from PammyDawn's Shop. Maybe its because we are hoping to have a family vacation at Disneyland in July, maybe its because I have loved Disney all my life, maybe its because I still have mouse ears from when I was a kid and am feeling nostalgic - either way, I have to have these clips for my girls! They are just too cute for words! This shop is also filled with all kinds of goodies, the felt butterflies are just exquisite!


These wool felt flowers from Maya Papaya's Shop are perfect for spring and summer. The color options she has are fabulous! And she has just about any felt clip you ever possibly think of! Bumblebees, owls, kitty cats, apples, gold fish - you name it, chances are you could find it at Maya Papaya to put in your hair!


This pair of needle felted bobby pins from Julie Persons shop could be for my little ones or for me! Needle-felted wool is just amazing and this shop is filled with so many lovely items from hair accessories to necklaces to even sculptures and dolls! I had a hard time picking just one favorite! You have to see them to believe them.


And just for kicks - here is a sneak peek at a twirly dress I just finished and will be listing shortly much to my daughters chagrin.


Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend!

Our fridays are movie nights. Movie, popcorn, slumber party in the living room. It's a great way to start the weekend.

I was like you when I was little-I loved playing with hair! I am so excited to have two living dolls of my own. :0) One hates to have her hair brushed, but whatever.

Very cute picks!
