Just a Little Thing or Two for Zooey Deschanel...

I'm a pretty darn excited about this. Now, I am not a celebrity person in general. I don't even recognize the names or faces of many of today's top celebs. But, I am a fan of Zooey Deschanel, star of Fox's hit show New Girl.


I love her vintage vibe, cause I am a total old soul and feel like I belonged in the 40's or 50's. I think she's a great actress and I love her singing voice/music because again, it's so very retro. So when Valerie from the Artisan Group asked which celebrity we would want to gift to, if we could gift directly to a specific celeb, my only answer was Zooey.

Wasn't I shocked when just a few hours later, a chance to participate in a gift bag going directly to Zooey was actually offered?! I jumped at the chance and landed one of the coveted spots. I wasn't sure at first what to gift since, shoes weren't really a practical option. Brainstorming with Valerie, though, we came up with hair accessories. She's been known to wear a few. So without further ado:


I went modern vintage. Totally appropriate I hope.


I couldn't resist taking pics on my husband's vintage record player.


I love the headband and will be making one for myself and listing it in my shop.


And to go with it, I made a little leather cuff, with scalloped edges and a demure bow.



I'm so nervous. What do you think? Do you thin they suit her? Think she'll like them?

Kara, I am a member of a fabulous group called The Artisan Group. They provide an way for handmade artists like myself to get our products into celebrity hands through gift lounges at the Oscars and other such events. They just recently started sending swag bags directly to celebs. Zooey was my pick, and she just happened to be one of the first that we did these bags for. I hope she likes them!
