It has been something I have obsessed over for quite a long time. Lets just say I have wanted one ever since I saw this image above and I couldn't get it out of mind. Notice the mantle! This space is designed by the uber talented Katie Hackworth and I have looked to her for inspiration for quite some time now because well, she's just down right amazing.
I have always struggled with what I wanted to put on my walls. Art isn't my strong point and I used to really struggle with choosing the right things to hang but when I saw this I swooned over the beauty and the history associated with it.
I started to search for one of my own but found out quickly these beauties were not in my price range.
At around $500 each they weren't even close...Ugh! Who else is constantly saying to themselves...how come everything I love always costs so dang much!?? You may say it with better english but you get my point.
So I considered making one....for like a hot minute because honestly it wasn't going to be cost effective in my opinion and over time I have come to the conclusion that my time is worth something. I have seen how others have made absolutely beautiful DIY ones and even though I love a good DIY this just wasn't for me.
Then after a few years of only dreaming about owning one I found the Old World Shoppe on Etsy and oh my heavens this was what I had been hoping for. Tons of beautiful and I mean beautiful JuJu hats and they were literally half the price of the ones I had previously found on other sites.
You really can't even imagine my excitement. I bet you actually can if you know me at all and it was through the roof! The Old World Shoppe shipped it directly to my home and I don't know about you all but I am a huge stickler for packaging and how things are shipped. My Juju Hat was packaged so tightly and was delivered in perfect condition.
I love it! It is one of my favorite things in our home and it makes me so happy to see it hanging over our mantel.
The feathers are full and beautiful and I think it's simply perfect!
It is a real statement piece and I can't even tell you how many guests ask "What is this and where did you find it!?" It's such a fun element in the design of the space. It really completes it for me.
The Old World Shoppe was so amazing to work with and they are even giving all House Seven readers a coupon code for 10% off each Juju Hat order!! Just use the code HOUSESEVEN to receive your discount. Enjoy!
