Flower Headbands-If you can't buy em', Make em'

Last week Little Miss Momma (my favorite blogger in blogland) asked her readers to join her in a headband challenge.  I of course jumped at the challenge, through this process I have had quite the headband revelation!

So if ya like this post please head over to her site and hit the thumbs up LIKE link under my pic.  :)  Thanks Friends!

What? this isn't super cool either?  Geez!
I discovered immediately that the headbands I own (and never wear unless I'm at home, in a closet, or washing my face) are antiquated.  
What you don't think this looks good?  

LMM had examples of herself and others in the world adorning these beautiful headbands and wearing them well.    Like this:

Any time I've seen people in my neck of the woods sporting these types of headbands they have been unable to walk or feed themselves.

So a double challenge occurred:  A. Wear cute headbands.
                                                                          B. Where to find cute headbands?  
Well of course I could find a million on Etsy, but they would never have shipped on time.  So I went to all our local boutiques asking if they had any...." Um you mean like a baby headband?"  No I mean like the super cool girl headbands silly!  Goodness!  (I think I could teach them a thing or two)

So I did the only thing I could do.....I wore the only cute headband I owned
 P.S. Taking pictures of yourself is harder than it looks.  Props to all you bloggers out there loving yourself with your cameras.  
A. It makes you feel weird.
B. It makes you look a little self absorbed.
C. It's inevitable that you will snap 40 pics to find one you can live with.  :)

I purchased the only cute headband I could find in this town.  At The Black Market. 

And I made the rest.    GO ME!  Maybe these stores around town should purchase some from me?

Oh and did you know that dog's can wear headbands too???
