My latest cool Etsy discovery? Kanzashi. These beautiful, intricately folded fabric flowers are a traditional Japanese hair adornment, and I’ve been noticing them all over Etsy lately! I just think they’re so stunning – like little pieces of wearable art. Here are 5 of my favorites.
1. By mizusugi.
2. By littlecookie.
3. By gochemoche.
4. A more elaborate example. By AtelierKanawa.
5. This one shows how they are worn. So lovely! By hanatsukuri.
In geeky English-major news, I realized today that I’ve been reading way too much Wordsworth for my British Romantic Poetry class when, in casual conversation, I had to fight to make myself to say something was “so worth it” instead of saying it had provided “abundant recompense”. Yikes.
Have a wonderful weekend!
