Here's an interview I had with shop owner, Jeana Cosentino:
Tell me a little bit about yourself.
My name is Jeana Cosentino. My husband, Rich, and I have been married for 17 years and we have 3 wonderful kids, ages 14, 11, and 8 years old. I am blessed to be able to stay home with my kids and make cute bows!
How did you get started with your Etsy shop and is there a story behind your shop name?
I started my Etsy shop after many years of loving to craft, sew and design. I just love pretty fabric and had to create something cute with it besides pillow covers and curtains (like I do for my home). The story behind the name of my shop, 'grace & rosie' is actually both of my daughters' middle names. I feel it's the perfect name for my shop.
Do you have a favorite item you have created?
My most favorite item(s) that I've created have to be my fabric bows. I take a lot of pride in every bow I make and I can be a bit of a perfectionist, which I feel is a benefit to making anything great.
What inspires you?
I'd have to say my main inspiration comes from my family. It sounds cliche, but it's the truth! I'm so blessed to have this small business from home. My customers also inspire me to keep creating and making cute hairbows with the feedback I've received. I'm so grateful!
Jeana was kind enough to send me these two beautiful headbands for Miss Sophia.
I was of course excited to see this first one, found here. Aqua happens to be my fave color lately and it's a perfect pair with the white and gray. The bunting print is great and I love that's it double layered, creates a really beautiful look. This headband is just so well put together, you can really tell Jeana puts a lot of effort into making each of her headbands excellent quality.
Sophia wasn't much in the mood for taking pictures today, so here's the best I could get.
I'm also in love with this beautiful tangerine felt headband, similar here. I like that it has a simple look to it, but it adds a great touch to any outfit. Sophia has the perfect little romper to wear with it. Since the print is so bold, I think the solid felt bow really evens the look out. Now where is that nice Spring weather at so that she can wear this outside?! This headband is also very sturdy and toddler proof. I know it will last no matter how many times Sophia will inevitably realize there is something on her head and quickly pull it off, until I can distract her again and put it back on! Ah, toddlers... I've been so close to buying this style of bow before but haven't for whatever reason, so I'm glad to now have one in Sophia's collection!
Here are a few of my other favorites in Jeana's shop. Each bow can be put on a clip or headband.
