Anybody can wear a bow, but...

We have Cakies! Today when I checked the mailbox I saw our package, which we ordered from Etsy. I bought a little flower hair clip for Suzi, and she sent me an extra one free for being one of the first ten customers! We got red and lavender. Here they are:


Aren't they precious? Suzi had to have one because she'd never seen any hair accessories like these and she loves to have the newest things. Plus they are handmade with love rather than mass-produced and it shows. I also think the packaging is so cute.

When I opened them Grandma and Grandpa hadn't brought Suzi home yet, so I couldn't resist trying one on myself. (You know you would've done the same thing.) So now we know they can handle a lot of hair but also stay put in just a teeny little hank of hair!


Here's Suzi wearing her lavender one and riding Betty Butterfly:

I'll have to get some better pictures later. She was having such a good time rocking it was hard to get a clear shot. These Cakies are adorable and if you have a girl you need to buy one! I also enjoy reading the creator's blog. I love to be creative and (try to) make things, and this blog is so inspiring with all the beautiful projects and bright colors.

And here is a random picture of Suzi eating pasta for the first time. I enjoyed watching her, but I did not enjoy cleaning it up. Next time we'll have penne pasta in small slices instead.

Too cute! I also enjoy her blog since you introduced me to it. It makes me wish I had a little girl. :) Oh well...I stick to the dirt and trucks!

That child of yours is toooo cute! Is it just me, or are you putting sun-in on her hair? ha-ha!
You'd better curb her internet surfing. She'll be ordering off etsy when you're sleeping!

Oh she looks so cute!!! Thanks for the blog lovin'!!! And yes, adults can wear Cakies too! Why not?!! I do (and at the boutiques here I hear that adults are buying for themselves)... and I have bigger ones coming out soon, for those who want more pop in their hair!!! Suzy is absolutely adorable? Do you mind if you send me an image of her wearing her cakies, we are in the process of making a website and postcard and would love to have an image of your daughter rockin' hers?!!
