A family member's wedding in Carolina is the perfect excuse for making a flower crown, I thought.  Even if it is a pretty traditional southern congregation and you look like a hippie child running around in your folk printed summer dress with a flower crown bouncing on your head.

I was shipped of to this wedding in my old home territory a couple of weekends ago, and despite that this side of the family is quite different from myself, it was still a beautiful time - the comfort of family in the warm North Carolina sun, with all my childhood southern go-to foods nearby.

I was going to try to do a how-to on making a flower crown, but this one was really fashioned pretty shabbily. I found one big stalk - tied it around my head with a knot at the end, then attached assorted flowers to the stalk band using the stems of the flowers.  It held together, but just for the length of the wedding.  Anyway, ever since Melissa and I made flower crowns in Washington  I'm looking for every excuse to make one, so hopefully I'll be able to make a sturdy one soon and do a proper how-to.
