{a crown of blossoms}

Just as Sofia Coppola's commercials and print ads for Dior have begun a love affair with balloons, Alix's Cherry Blossom life has city girls everywhere fluttering around like lovely wood nymphs wearing crowns of blossoms . . .

{more lovely headdresses:}
* the cherry blossom girl
* paper flower tiaras
* tiraras & headdresses
* blossoms on the side

Lovely! On a day that's kind of grey with the promise of rain this afternoon, daydreaming of lolling about in grassy fields.

Both pictures are striking in a sweet and innocent way. I remember making "crowns" out of little flowers I found in our yard. As silly as it sounds, these pictures also remind me of Maid Marion in the wedding scene in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, which I've always loved because she wears a crown made from flowers. Sadly, I loved that movie!

I made a crown from a weeping willow tree when I was a kid and had my hair consequently infested with bugs! These are so very lovely though, I'm tempted to try one again :)

These images were just what I needed. They are so pure and innocent. Everything has been so busy and dreary. With the state of the country right now, it's all anybody is talking about... and I'm over it. These make me want to be 6 years old and go pick a bunch of daisies:)
