A tiny pink barrette and a warm welcome

First and foremost I really want to welcome all my new readers/followers and thank you all for the support you've given me with my very first bakeshop project! I'm really excited to tell you that I have more projects planned and in the pipeline =)

This adorable little pink barrette is my favorite hair accessory at this point in time. It's really tiny which makes it prefect for me as I have such thin, babyish hair - and it's PINK, perfect for summer =)

As I couldn't find any barrettes in the crafting store this small, I bought an (pardon my french) ugly, cheap one, stripped it of decoration and made it from that one. It also turned out much cheaper then buying an "empty" one at the craft store. As all of it is covered, the little glue residue I got from the original bow doesn't show at all in the end. I took some pictures while I was making it so there might be a tutorial coming up on how to make one for yourself, it's really quite easy.

Oh and on a side note, the plant on our balcony I took the pictures in is flowering for the first time in the 3 years I've had it. I'm so glad, I had no idea it had such adorable, tiny pink flowers!
