First three photos by me, second lot of three by Roses and String people .

On Tuesday night I attended a little crafting class to make my own floral crown, down at Queens Parade in Willesden which I have blogged about before here . It was a fun evening with cake and wine (always good), and everyone made very different looking crowns. All you need is gardening wire, gardening tape and some flowers. Easy.
I'm not sure I can rock this on an every day basis, nor am I going to any festivals or weddings in the near future, but we'll see! (I look awkward as it is in the last picture..)

  2. You're bringing out your inner Frida Kahlo, flowers absolutely suit you :-) I say wear it around the house at the end of a bad day for a pick-me-up!

  3. Hi,
    Many creativity. Great picture esthetics perfect...
    The resolution is poor, we are in the age of high resolution - 10 years late ! : this is the weak point of the blog.
    imageshack and flickr - they are obsolete.
    Choose Picasa, imgbox.com or imagebam.com with free registration.

    Continue your great job.
    Bye.

  5. Creepy comment round two! You look wonderful here! And you look into your crown in that 6th picture ehheh tres studious rachel! xoxox

    ps Rachel did you know imageshack and flickr are obsolete?! Cos i did not!! I feel we should both definetly follow the trustworthy and not at all spam comment from the anonymous Carla B! Im sure she is giving this helpful advice out of her own niceness and she in no way works for picasa hehhe xoxox
