Pretty little things

I picked up this vintage necklace at a flea market a couple weeks ago and love it! I couldn't believe it was only 75 cents!
I figured I'd give you all a little sample of what's going to be going into my etsy shop, and this is my favorite little creation so far. It's a three rose lace barrette and it's positively lovely. I've truly been working at all these little hair accessories (some bigger than others) to the point where my aunt said a section of my room was starting to look like a sweat shop with all the fabric, thread and pins. Her description was actually pretty accurate, that's the funny part. I hope you all do enjoy the end result when I start up the shop next month!
I was truly contemplating putting this picture up. I love these wedges, but I hate my feet. I'm so self-conscious of them! Watching Shallow Hal seriously scarred me for life. So here I am, throwing myself under the bus of all insecurity. Please don't hate me for it!
Instead, possibly take this as a bit of inspiration... maybe, or just a picture of a set of odd toes...
Either way, overcome a little something you feel a bit self-conscious about yourself today. We all hold something about ourselves that makes us a bit uneasy, a tad unsure just to think of. Something that we wrinkle our noses to, but wouldn't take a second to judge or even notice in another being. Oh the standards we set for ourselves that overwrought our normally levelheaded minds. To those who say otherwise, I detest you. No, truly, I admire you!
Acceptance of one's self is a wonderful thing, and to whole-heartedly love one's self is a movement of beauty never to be belittled. ♥

Most people don't even notice those kind of things anyway, but just know that you dont have to worry.

I love all these details and the photography is great! That necklace reminds me of a beautiful swimming pool. Also, those roses are so gorgeous!
I never saw Shallow Hal. I think everyones toes are odd, they are kind of a weird appendage in general ;)but yours look really cute in those sandals.
