Weekend Pick Me Up: Silk Butterfly Hair Clips from Kate's Cottage


Sometimes I need to get butterflies for hats or other accessories, for instance, a friend was looking for them for her wedding this past January...but the only ones I've ever been able to find are crappy looking ones from Michael's with half-assed painting, split feathers, and bent antennae. Disappointing to say the least.


Which is why I was quite excited to come across Kate's Cottage on etsy, who makes the most lovely delicate dupioni silk butterfly clips. A single clip is only $6 and you can pick from 20 different designs. Good luck finding something nice nice at Claire's Accessories.

I think they are all lovely. Actually, I think the above image looks incredibly beautiful and would look amazing in a shadow box mounted on the wall...is that strange? I think it would be beautiful, and one could say no butterflies were harmed in the making of this fauna display!


Although if I was going to buy them (which I am most certainly considering!) I would probably just go with a set of 3, for $16 (and only $2.50 for shipping). I can't attest to the quality of these clips, but based on the photos and feedback it truly looks like they're in a world of their own and would look wonderful for a special occasion or everyday.
