Touch and Bow

It’s a rough estimate that there are about five million moms in the United States who dream nightly of custom-designing hair accessories for their children. (Don’t ask where that statistic was found. We have our sources.) Of that five million, about five hundred actually get around to doing it. And of that five hundred, a mere handful succeed in producing something fashionable enough not only to pin in little Princess’s hair, but to sell to the rest of us raising little Princesses of our own. Little Lesiw is one of these elite. With all the genuine charm and wholesome qualities one would expect of a family raising its own little bundle of inspiration (an adorable girl adopted domestically), Little Lesiw goes to work winning our hearts immediately with a wide variety of clips in the “Bloom” style, including such fun and fearless styles as Zebra, Candy Mix, Kiss Me, Hot Pink with White Dots and Ni hao Kai-lan in addition to classic solid tones. Of course, the magic doesn’t end there.

For those who prefer pigtail sets, options range from the simply sweet Pink With Swiss Dots to the deep and versatile Pinwheel Set in red. Have an eye for modern interpretations? The Oh Snap collection, like its cousin the Clippie Chaos gallery, offers its fair share of offbeat and on-point themes for anyone aspiring break out of the Girl in Sunday Best stereotype. What makes this particular shop so appealing is the high-quality craftsmanship of its product line; what makes it special, however, is that intangible “it” factor that can only come from the artistic bosom of someone who knows how to celebrate the singular beauty of a child. And as celebrations go, one more will be in order for the winner of today’s giveaway. Little Lesiw has graciously offered to send not one but three items of choice to one lucky Wishing Willow reader. To qualify, visit Little Lesiw, then come back here to tell us about your favorite style and color. Tell us in a second post if you subscribe to Wishing Willow, since our subscribers receive an extra entry in the contest. To post without a Google account, just click “anonymous.” Be sure to also leave your email address. The winner will be chosen randomly. Contest ends 1/30/09.

We have a winner! Kathleen who said, "Oh my goodness, the quality!! Very impressive. As mama to three girls, it's hard to pick just one style and color I love. The bitty bloom in pink and brown, very sweet! Love that hey would work for my 9yo and my 6mo old." Congrats!
