A Rebelling One Year Old and an Etsy Giveaway

It's happened. I knew this moment would come, but I was hoping I would have had a few more months. It's tragic, really.

Ivy is rebelling.

She no longer appreciates the constant hair accessories I try to force on her sweet head. All her headbands have been terribly neglected in the last few weeks. Sigh...

I've been trying clips with moderate success, but I have to be tricky. I take 2 clips and put both of them in Ivy's hair practically stacked on top of each other. She then proceeds to pull the top one out and be none the wiser about the second one. It works. Usually. And when it does, I get photos like this.



LOOK at all that beautiful hair. Ivy is wearing the sweet swirls clip from Bloomz on etsy. I adore felt and Leslie makes some wonderfully creative accessories with it. I need to get my hands on this one next.




Isn't it edible?

Leslie, the owner of Bloomz has offered to give one of you a $10 gift certificate to her sweet little shop. To enter, head on over to Bloomz and let me know in the comments what you would choose if you won. [Side note...if you do win, you're allowed to change your mind].

I'll choose one winner at random sometime on Tuesday, April 27.

*Giveaway is open to everyone, even my wonderful friends overseas.

GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED.

  1. Oooooh - the fishy friend one. Or the watermelon. Or the pink and brown mix and match. The glitter ribbons are so cute! Okay, I will stop now. Great stuff though!

  6. ooohhhh! there's so much to choose from, but i think i'd go with the Wool Blend Felt Flower Headband Hot Pink, Turquoise, Grape, and Chartreuse...LOVE the color combination!

  7. So many cute things in her shop! I love the skinny elastic flower headbands, and the regular headbands with lots of felt flowers on them, ooooh, and the star snap clip! And, what a great idea putting two clips in one on top of the other. My Ivy is rebelling also. She now does better with headbands than clips, but maybe we should try the double clip trick! =)

  12. I also am a huge fan of felt clippies! I just found this shop recently and have not yet ordered. I love the pink fishy and the barbie pink flower and the cupcake. I could go on and on...

    ReplyDelete
  13. I LOVE the one in Ivy's hair...I'd pick that one for sure, and probably the trio of wool blend clip - it's so unique!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love the Felt Flower hair clips - especially "With a Touch of Silver". Cuteness! Thanks for sharing...although, I don't know if V would wear them just yet either even if I win. She let me put pigtails in her for two days...and, since then it's a battle, so I just don't even try right now. But, her hair is getting longer (finally!) and I want so much to play with it and make it look oh, so cute.

  15. in ivy's defense, i get terrible headaches from headbands & clips. i remember ripping bows & headbands off of my head & my mom getting extremely upset. but now we know why.

    [then again, she could just be rebellious. :)] but at least she's precious!

  16. the sweet swirls wool clip is really pretty and I also like the shades of purple wool blend felt flower headband

    ReplyDelete
  17. Any of the sweet fish! I love those little guys.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I really like the one you choose, the ice cream head band....Trinity "adores" ice cream so having it on her head would be a treat for her....oh...by the way, thanks for opening up to us international folks....we were beginning to feel a tad bit left out- ha!

  19. All right it was hard to choose what I would like since they are all so very cute, but I think I narrowed it down to these...Wool Blend Felt Flower Hair Clip in Chocolate Brown, Aqua and Some Pink

    Pink Chocolates Wool Blend Felt Flower With Leaves Alligator Clip

    Itty Bitty Pink and Brown Ladybug on a Wool Blend Felt Flower

    Wool Blend Felt Flower in Candy Apple Red, Periwinkle, and Yellow

    But I am sure the list will only grow bigger when I go back and look again. :)

  20. I love the cupcake and the fishy ones. SO cute.

  21. The cupcakes are my favorite! So sweet.

    I also found a few headbands for our baby girl's baptism next month. Now I just need to choose between them all!

    I'm sure it'll be a passing phase with little Ivy... before too long she'll love them as much as you do. :)

  25. itty bitty spring alligator trio set! I have to be sneaky with Eliza too...

    ReplyDelete
  26. How can anyone choose?! Harper is in a wedding this fall, wearing a navy dress, and I'd love to put the shades of blue headband with the flower trio in her pretty curls. Who knows if she'd keep it in, though! Wouldn't matter - just one picture would be enough :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the Sweet Swirls, but they are all so cute!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. My daughter does the same thing. We're just now getting to the point where she'll keep things in her hair...sometimes. :) If I had to choose (and who'd want to limit to just one???) I'd chose the "Intrigue In Blushing Hand Crochet Hair Clip". I love all things crocheted and it's a beautiful piece.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like the sweet little fishy, I like all the fishy ones!! My daughter has rebelled with anything in her hair from day one. They look so good in her sweet little curls. Just now she occassionally will ask to where one to school but won't let it go in her hair past naptime. I am hopeful though!

    ReplyDelete
  30. augh! i'm dreading this very realistic possibility in my future.. i have way to many cute headbands for that! :) defintly the sweet little rose felt flower clip is my pick. my favorite felt flower headband lady is closing her shop (hairblooms) so i had to buy up everything i was wishing on so i wouldn't regret it. :) felt flowers are the best!

  31. I would choose the Sweet Baby Butterfly Hair Clips on Itty Bitty Alligator Clips! so cute!

    Yay, thanks for including those of us from overseas.

    It's coming up to winter here in Australia, so even though I love the clips, I would probably chose one of the gorgeous hats.

  34. Ribbon Lady Bug Please! I can't wait to put it in my 16 month daughter's adorable, crazy curly, rebelling hair! Blessings to you. Jessica

  35. Oh my goodness-those are ADORABLE! I love the "sweet little rose" felt clip! Too cute! Thanks for another addiction :) Madelynn needs to hurry up and grow some hair. Though right now I just attach all of her hair clips onto headbands to create my own :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm lovin the sweet baby butterfly clips---although I'm not sure who would enjoy them more, Lily or Mari!!! Miss you Bri :) Jess

  37. Love the Itty Bitty Snap Clip with Crochet Cotton Flower in Orange, Yellow and White!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I like the glitter clips as the pink one would go perfectly with the dress I purchased for my daughters second birthday!

    I also like the Sweet Baby Butterfly Hair Clips on Itty Bitty Alligator Clips now that spring is here they would be perfect with my daughters spring and summer clothing.

  39. I would love the Summer Fun Itty Bitty Alligator Clip Trio for my adorable niece! Her hair isn't quite there yet, but soon it will!

    ReplyDelete
  40. They're all so cute! With a one month old daughter (who has A LOT of hair!), it would be tough to decide... I'd probably pick a few of the felt flowers and probably the strawberry clip.

    Thanks!
