Out for Nature Break

For the next few days I'll be headed out for a wild fairy romp! (Also known as a backpacking trip for those of you who don't speak elvish) As the mood took me, I did a search for Wood Elf goods, and came out with a wonderful basket of great picks for long eared style!
Here in Colorado even in the midsummer it is often chilly enough for woolens, particularly out in the forest and mountains. This pixie worthy hat from BeautifulPlace will keep you toasty even in the coldest of beautiful places. Don't forget that those pointy ears will need to stay warm!

On a cold evening in the woods one might need a little more warmth than even that tho, but ditch the sweaters and coats ---> this is what you need! A custom piece from FrixieGirl that is both rustic and modern. The warm natural wool felt will be warm and durable, and help you to fade into the trees. One could even try to match the colors and shapes of your local flora.
Perhaps one would want a little bit more camouflage? For sneaking about in the lush woods and leaping from tree to tree right... These Woodland earrings from LuxePlumes would be right at home in any forest, the natural feathers will make you the cutest elf on the block (err, the hill? Tree?)

One needs to have a way to pin back your hair, have to show off those lovely ears right? Petalmix has a variety of wonderful Tsumami Kanzashi flowers, a nice mix of traditional techniques paired with a little modern bling! One could cultivate a collection to match your every outfit, as these dress up a t-shirt, and finish an evening dress...

SilkStoneDesigns creates these silver leafs directly from the real deal, then matches them with lovely leather that is reminiscent of a willow branch. Simple adornments that will be happy in the woods, or will bring some woods into the city! It's even made from recycled silver, so you can be green while you're being green...

Naturally, I will be bringing knitting on my trip, and here's some yarn that warms a wood elf's heart! Kittygrrlz colorway Forest Snake, with a fabulous interplay of greens and browns with a little bit of magic sparkle! Imagine your own Fae creation with this funky art yarn...
I'll be hiding in the trees for a few days, dreaming of wild adventures and enjoying the fresh mountain air. Until then, stay crafty!
