I haven’t participated in Faith‘s Treasure Tuesday for a while, so I thought I’d jump back in. Today’s treasure is oh-so near and dear to my heart.
You see, I am a Southern girl, born and bred. And as you may know, we proud Southern women wear our hair big, we wear it proud, and we always, always (say it with me, Southern sisters)…accessorize. Even the youngest of us is not exempt from this fine tradition. My baby daughter Corrie had a hair bow stuck in her hair when she only had a few strands on her head. Now that she sports a beautiful head full of silky blonde hair, that poor child’s head is a veritable pin-cushion for hair accessories.
If you’ve read this blog for any length of time, you know that I’m not a frivolous shopper. But bows…oh, those precious bows…well, they are my weakness. And it is with this in mind that I present to you my "treasure" for today. Won’t you please step inside The Inner Bow Sanctum:
I keep this big basket on top of my fridge (I fix Corrie’s hair while she sits in her high chair eating breakfast). We’ve got polka-dot bows, funky bows, formal bows, multi-colored bows, large bows, tiny bows…you name it. AND, thanks to my new friend SuperMom, we’ll soon have homemade bows. She is the queen of bows, and she makes them for her two daughters. I’m going to her house later this week so she can teach me the fine skill of be-decking my daughter’s head with my own handiwork! I’m so excited.
And no, if you’re wondering, I will not force Corrie to continue wear bows when she’s older, if she decides she doesn’t like them. Except on Sunday. And Christmas. And to sporting events. And to meals. And on days that end in -y….
