butterfly and acorn

I seem to have developed some kind of acorn-addiction. There's just something completely irresistible about their appearance, shape, style and pattern, in nature as well as design. As it is still summer I won't be sporting anything acorny soon, I think. But still, a gal can dream and wish for more acorn in life.

To be honest, in this case of hair clips it wasn't the acorn and leaf that first stroke my fancy, but the incredible looking felted and stitched monarch butterfly.

It's about life sized with its 35 x 75 mm and just stunning irl too, ah, such a pretty, pretty hair ornament (I chose a sturdy French clip, but you can get it as a brooch too) I'm sure I will treasure for a long, long time.

And well, the acorn and the leaf aren't half bad either. Obviously. Acorn rocks.
