Braided Hair Ribbons for Valentines

JK Purdy wedding with 3 adorable flowergirls

I saw a picture of woven hair accessories in Pinterest and it reminded me of our three sweet flower girls – in 1985! They looked so adorable and as you see, couldn’t wait for cake! Although the wedding was in late summer, I thought the hair accessories would make adorable valentines Day hairbows.

Most of all, I love seeing those three sweet little girls who are now mothers with children of their own. I wonder if their little girls would like to wear these hair accessories for Valentines Day?

I found a tutorial for making braided ribbons. I found ribbons with flowers but you can add any accessory. Perhaps heart button or heart-bead for this month.

Now if only I had a little girl to make some for! If you make one, please send a pic to share with our readers. Have fun!





Reviews for The Vision of a Mother’s Heart

Dear Kathy,
I finished reading The Vision of a Mother’s Heart, and thoroughly enjoyed it. What a sweet book! It reminded me of the “Waltons” in some ways, the family, that is. However, their trials and tribulations were far greater, but the message that flows through it–faith, hope and love–resonates with all of us. For He is the answer to all of our troubles! My heart went out to little Isabel–what a legacy she has left for you and your family!
You mentioned that you are considering a sequel to it, and I think that would be a great idea because I wanted to know more about this family and what happened to them!
Take care,
Carolyn Tyree Feagans


this is a book that truly is God centered. I am recommending this book to my congregation.

The faith in God that Mrs. Greene had was evident in her everyday life and in the teachings to her children and every one that she came in contact with. Isabel was a very rich little girl; not monetarily, but in all the Godly blessings that she had.

Isabel’s story touched my heart. I am anxiously waiting for Katherine Hinchee Purdy’s next book that will take us along on Isabel’s life journey.

This review is from: The Vision of a Mother’s Heart (Paperback)

This book made me laugh and made me cry. Reading about the Greene Family draws you into their lives and draws you closer to what really matters in life, God and Family. I read this book in one day. I am looking forward to finding out what happens next with Isable Greene and her Family. What an amazing life she lived. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical fiction. This book is entertaning but at the same time teaches important life lessons.
