Flower Headpiece

Me:  Mallory let's practice your spelling words.  What's one of the words?

Mallory:  Contrasity

Me:  Contrasity?  What's contrasity?

Mallory:  MOMMA! You teach FIFTH Grade!!! You know-like two petes can fit in a quart.  How much something holds.  Its actually a pint.  Not a peent.

Me: What's the big "C" word again?

Mallory: Contrasity. It actually starts with an "A".

Me: You sure its not capacity?

Mallory: OHH! It's compacity.

(The headpiece was inspired by Miss Ruby Sue on  Check her out-she's awesome! I made a wired ribbon flower and two fabric flowers to make this one.)

New edition:  You can't see much of it, but I worked just as hard on the "backdrop" of this picture, as I did on the headpiece.  It is an old bed (and some flower pillows) that has been in my attic for as long as I have had an attic.  Not even sure why I had it.  Wish I had taken a before pic, but I am sure you can imagine the yellowish white that happens to things that have been in an attic for years.

And here it is now.  In case you like this color as much as I do, it is called Grand Day Green from the Disney collection from Behr paint at Lowe's or Home Depot-I can't remember which.  (And no, it is not more expensive just because it says Disney on it.  I know-shocker!)

I am linking up to the party at Miss Mustard Seed!  Check her out!
