crown and glory

A couple of weeks ago, I received an e-mail from Sophie, the founder of the wonderfully whimsical company,
Crown and Glory
.



Crown and Glory began just over a year ago, in early 2010. Starting out by creating hand painted butterfly pieces, Sophie's shop has expanded enormously, now stocking a range including floral headdresses (made to measure), bird themed accessories and fabric headbands. The perfect place to find something beautiful to dress your head!


Sophie was suggesting that we did a product swap (seeing as we were both big fans of the others creations!), and how could I resist such an exciting offer? We talked about which items were our favourites, but it was all a surprise until we received our parcels!





Since I finally got my hands on my parcel on Wednesday afternoon, I've been itching to try out the beautiful hair slides and very cute teeny tiny swallow brooch that Sophie kindly sent me.

Flight Bobby Pin Set £7.00
Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Polka Dot Bobby Pins £2.00
I can't believe that the little polka dot bobby pins are only £2.oo for a pair (you can choose both blue, both pink or a mixture of the two). 

Flock Brooch Free gift
I was also pleased as punch to receive the tiny swallow brooch, which is a free gift with every order from Crown and Glory. It is seriously cute, will definitely be adorning my cardigans from now on!


The Flight bobby pin set is so beautiful, I'm so glad that Sophie chose these for me. The vintage floral patterns on the swallow are definitely me! I rarely wear hair slides these days, for some reason I always seem to think that they make me look like a little girl, but these feel very 'grown up', and as Sophie said in her letter which she included in my parcel, Every bird lover deserves a flock of gorgeous swallows for their tresses. I absolutely adore them, and have already had some admiring comments from people :)







Sophie has kindly offered all What Katie Found readers 15% off their order when you enter whatkatiefound at the checkout, visit the Crown and Glory shop here, and you too can beautifully dress your tresses! :)
