Show Pics, Free Shipping, and Northtown - Oh My!

Hello friends! I hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving filled with gratefulness and with loved ones. We are so thankful for the support and encouragement we have received from so many of you as we have begun this exciting business adventure over the past nine months! We truly appreciate you.

Since last writing, we have enjoyed two fun-filled craft fairs, and I have posted photos of all the fabulous customers who were gracious enough to model for me! You will find them all on our Facebook page, and as always, feel free to email regarding any item that catches your eye. Most likely, we can recreate it just for you!

In honor of "Cyber Monday" (who on earth thought of this title, anyway?) we will be offering FREE SHIPPING on any orders - including customs - one day only! We've also photographed this little holiday gem for you...

Dainty enough to wear any way you please. On a hat, on a headband, or worn in an updo and especially lovely as an unexpected little twist to your favorite hairstyle. I recently made a similar one for a custom order for an adorable little 6 year old, but I wanted to keep it for myself! This is a very fun piece for little girls, and for those of us who LOVE the flower and feather trend that is raging right now, but maybe aren't ready for one of those giant foofy pieces! The velvet hydrangea petals measure about 2.5" across, and are shaded in various red and burgundy tones, making it a perfect compliment to just about any holiday ensemble.

November 30 - Cyber Monday -FREE SHIPPING On All Orders!
Cyber Monday Special: Red velvet Hydrangea clip with feather accents - $13
Add our new skinny silver-toned headband (comfy and adjustable!) - $3
Email us to order this special at

*While supplies last*
(Please let us know if you would like to customize your piece with a different feather color, or a different headband)

(More photos of this little beauty on Facebook)

And finally, we are so excited to share with you our next, and FINAL, holiday show! "A Vintage Christmas" will be at Spokane's Northtown Mall this coming weekend, Dec 4-6. For more information on what looks to be a fabulous show, please visit the show's beautiful website, where we are honored to be a featured artist!

We will be offering lots and lots of trendy new looks, including holiday pieces, great gift items, and new adult hat styles. We'll have our beautiful new gift cards on hand, and for the first time, we will be accepting credit cards at this show. So come one, come all! This is your last chance to shop our huge show selection before Christmas. And oh, I almost forgot! We have decided to donate 10% of our proceeds from this show to benefit children in need through World Vision. For more info on World Vision and all of the wonderful things they are doing, visit:

How NOT to wear a Posh Topping

(Harper's Bazaar)
Folks have different ideas about how to wear a hair flower, headband, or flower hat. The possibilities are plentiful! Have fun experimenting to find what you like best, or change up the placement for totally different looks each time you wear them or decorate your gorgeous girl.

We generally suggest NOT placing hat or headband flowers centered and low on the forehead (you know, like a headlamp). Dads are famous for doing that to their little cuties. I generally like the hats just over the tips of the ears, which my girls tolerate just fine since our hats are stretchy and comfy. This prevents the spritely "elf" look. :)

Here are a couple more looks to avoid.

The Posh Harvest Headband

We're going to start doing a limited-time promotion every now and then. These headbands, similar to ones I made up for a customer's birthday tea party favors, inspired the idea! Aren't they just YUMMY? I love fall colors. We didn't get much of them in nature 'round here this year. I guess that's what happens when you get August temperatures in the end of September and January temperatures in the beginning of October. So I got my fix making up a bunch of these little beauties.

Brown dainty headband (fits toddler to adult), you pick the flower color. Flower is removable, of course, so add it to a hat you already own or wear it any number of ways in the hair or elsewhere. This style is perfect for young and ...not so young. You'll probably want to hoard it, actually. (Let us know if you'd rather have a 1.5" crochet headband which fits newborn to adult.)

$14 with free shipping. While supplies last. What a deal, huh? Add a second flower to your set for $11. Can't decide? "The Posh Harvest Spoil Me Set" (one headband and all 5 flowers) $54 shipped. This is less than you'd pay at our events, folks, and with free shipping to boot!

Just email us with what you'd like and we'll take it from there.

Sneak Peek - Upcoming Shows!

I was going to be better about blogging regularly... really I was. But other business chores, and well frankly, "life" has a way of getting in the way.

Our summer shows were exceedingly wonderful. We have posted loads of pictures on our Facebook page and we hope you will take a gander if you haven't already! Remember that, though our online store is somewhat limited, we can almost always recreate something that you have seen in one of our pictures just for you! Simply cut and paste the photo into an email to us. If you want it slightly different from pictured, or a combination of two photos (a flower in one shot with the center of another) just tell us! It really is that easy.

Exciting news for local fans and followers! We will be showcasing a new and enormous selection of flower clips, headbands, and hats in two upcoming shows. Wonderful Fall and Winter colors. Time to get started on that Christmas shopping, people! Don't put it off until the last minute like I do. I'll bet Posh Toppings would be a perfect and unique gift for MANY of the loved ones on your list.

This sneak peek is a tiny portion of what we'll be offering! Beautiful new jeweled pieces, lots more of our authentic Posh Vintage centers, plenty of our standard but oh-so-popular simple crystal bling centers, new delicate traditional style headbands, as well as our usual assortment of stretchy headbands and beanie hats in oodles of colors. We'll even have a selection of trendy new hat styles for teens and adults!

Hello There, Strangers

Summer is good.

You are less likely to find me on my computer when the sun is shining and the lake or park or backyard is calling.

Am I the only one who feels this way? Thus, the long lapse of blogosphere contributions. Despite my absence, Stacy and I have been hard at work making and selling Posh Toppings! What great events we had in June! We posted photos of the Backyard Boutique on Facebook, and today I posted photos from the Latah Variety Market! So fun! I've added some of them here, but be sure to check out our Facebook Fan Page for lots more!

And now for the pinnacle of the summer, and our biggest event yet, by far! The Art on the Green festival this weekend in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho! Most local people know it as Art on the Green, but it is actually three very large events, all linked together on the same weekend, creating a huge arts, crafts, food and fun event! We will be part of the Taste of the Coeur d'Alenes event, which is in the beautiful City Park beginning this Friday, July 31st. Hours are Fri & Sat 10-8:30 and Sun 10-6. If you are in the area, be sure to come by and see the enormous selection of new items we have been creating all summer for this three day sale. You won't regret it!

We will have some of our most popular pieces available, as well as loads and loads of new Posh Blossom designs. We will also be showing off our brand new Posh Vintage line! These special, one-of-a-kind pieces feature repurposed vintage centers, and are just gorgeous! Come early for these, as our selection of authentic vintage pieces is limited, and they will probably not last long!

In addition to our flower clips, we will share a whole new selection of headband and hat styles and colors to display your lovely Posh Blossoms on. As always, you will find plenty of items for babies to ladies! We'll look forward to seeing you!

Note to out of towners: We don't mean to leave you out, if you are too far away to enjoy our local events. Always feel free to peruse the pictures from these events and let us know if you'd like us to recreate any of the looks you may see in photos but not in our online store! We welcome custom orders. Just email us!

One more thing: Lovin' the adorable handmade clothing my little ones are sporting in the first two photos? Me too! I discovered a gal who does fabulous work at affordable prices! Check her out at 1crown3tiaras. I think you'll be seeing a lot more of her precious things in my photos. I just can't help myself!

We're Busy Bees!

Yep, it may have been quiet on the blog front during May, but that's because we have been so swamped! In May, we participated in two shows. The first was a Private Party at Spokane's prestigous Fourteenth And Grand Salon, where we primarily showcased all of our wonderfully chic and trendy womens' designs. They were well received! In fact, if you happen to step into this fabulous salon, you will probably spy some of our pretty pieces adorning many of the gals who work there!

Next was the very large Garden Expo, with an estimated 12,000-16,000 in attendance. This was a fun event, and after a questionable weather week, we fortunately enjoyed beautiful sunshine for our first big outdoor show.

Welcome to all of our new readers/followers/fans who have joined us here after these wonderful events! It was great fun to meet all of you!

And if you are local, and missed these events, don't be sad! We have more coming up! You can come out and visit us at the quickly approaching "Latah Creek Variety Market" on June 20 and 21. This sounds like it is going to be such a fun, family event! There is a big pancake feed both mornings, children's activities, singing and dancing entertainment, and loads of vendors ranging from local farmers, to a variety of arts, crafts, antiques and food vendors. What a great way to spend a portion of Father's Day weekend! Here is a quote from their promotions:

"Our 85 wonderful vendors will display and market their vintage and handmade goods, sweets, plants, wares, jewelry.... so much more... Even carnival rides and fun for the little ones... Getting to the Variety Market is very easy. Minutes from Downtown Spokane: I-90- to exit 279b (the pullman exit) South onto Highway 195,traveling approximately 2.5 miles to the intersection of Cheney-Spokane Road on the right. 4237 south Cheney-Spokane road. The Market is located in the Trading Company Plaza. Spokane, Washington 509-624-4182"

And finally, we will post more info later regarding our participation at Coeur d'Alene's Art on the Green/Taste of Coeur d'Alene/Street Fair weekend, July 31-Aug 2. We are getting so excited about being in this festival of all festivals!

As always, we will have a ton of selection and items not pictured on our website available at these events. AND as always, if our online shoppers don't see what you are looking for in our store, please ask! We may have something already made up that is just perfect for you. And of course, we always LOVE doing custom orders as well!
