Fit for a Queen.....
I have been seeing pretty crowns all over Blogland and Flickr and I really wanted one of my own. I finally found a lovely one at Marshalls and it was a nice vintage gold color, but just not right for my decor. So I bought it anyway and painted it a creamy white and added some sparkling rhinestones and I just love the results! It is just what I wanted! I think it looks so pretty sitting on top of my Simply Shabby Chic bookcase with some of my other favorite things.Look at the pretty details on my bookshelf which I blogged about finding at the Goodwill a while back. Now I have found my crown, but I am still wanting a rhinestone tiara for my birthday. (Hint, hint Sweet Husband!)

A lovely crown. Everyone of us should have a crown, don'tcha think. I have one and I'm not thrilled with the color. I think I'm get the spray can out too. I love how it looks with all your other pretty things.

Hi, Michelle,
Your crown is so pretty! I like how you painted it and embellished it with rhinestone! It looks very pretty with the grouping you have it in, too. Have a happy week ahead. Vicki p.s. If husband doesn't take a hint, just go buy yourself a beautiful tiara.
