Toile Tales {review + giveaway}




Let's make your head happy!



Toiles Tales is a goldmine filled with the most adorable hats for anyone in your life. They have eight beautifully unique styles that compliment any day of the week.




Sure, we all have bad hair days (or bad hair lives, like me :)) but these are hats you can wear anytime! The thing that I love most about Toile Tales are the two lovely ladies behind these beautiful creations. Amy and Lori are two moms (with a total of eight kids!) who love to craft. We are all lucky for that! And my goodness they are fabulous to work with!




No folks, the camera doesn't lie. They start with the softest cotton yarn (that comes in the yummiest of colors) and finish with details that make your hat stand out from the rest. Each stitch is perfect. Make sure you top your hat off with the adorable flower hair clip too! It totally makes the hat.


(Here's me in my olive Darling! (and what happens when you ask your two year old to take a picture -- I do have a face!))



I would highly recommend following these two lovely ladies on their blog and twitter! It will take you two seconds, and you will get so many goodies in return! (March's special for followers is free shipping for you cont. US shoppers!!)

Thanks to sweet Amy and Lori of Toile Tales, a lucky reader of The Ivy Twines will get their very $30 credit to their shop! WOW!
