Crown Obsession...

I have come to realize and I confess that I have a crown obsession....and I don't think I'm alone. (You know who you are...)  I cannot resist them and they are popping up all over my home.  Afterall we don't have to be royalty to enjoy them, so I say the more the merrier!

I like them plain and I like them fancy....


I like moving them around and trying them in different vingettes...

 You can use them as a cloche ....
I found this crown at Tuesday Mornings and of course, had to have it.  I also wanted you to see the cute little table that I painted pink and shabbied up....

 The little jar is from Pottery Barn.  I made a paper flower for fun
and of course, some mercury glass for that extra little dab of bling.
A sparkly crown loves sitting under a cloche...

This sweet little statue loves wearing her paper crown...


      

Even Gabby decided to get in on the royal act and wear a crown for this post...
Afterall, a kittie's home is a kittie's Castle!

Gorgeous post. Question for you- what color is that pink paint on the table you did- unless it is a secret recipe...xo Diana

Gabby looks adorable! I love crowns, but I have to admit the one I would steal from you is the one with bling! I think I will do what you said with the privacy screen, I will use just one or 2 sections, that will fit in my booth!

I love crowns too. Yours are great. Of course, I liked the last picture the best! :)

I also love crowns. I have 3. Gabby looks disgusted with the whole thing. When one of my cats was small she would get inside of one of my crowns and curl up and take a nap.

Janae said...

I love crowns so much. You have so many pretty ones! My favorite is the crystal like one, so pretty!!

Gail said...

You have a beautiful collection of crowns Sissie and they are all so beautifully displayed. Gabby is adorable!! Enjoy your day, Gail

hi,Sissie, love all your pretty crowns. I don't know how I have survived the crown craze without buying one. :) Guess I just haven't seen any around here.
I love the way you displayed them, too.
Have a great Wed.

You've got some really pretty crowns, Sissie. I love the ones with the open bottom so that you can put something inside.

Gabby is an absolute heart stealer. I'm afraid of cats but I love looking at them. Gabby looks like a real princess! I have never seen a crown with stones on it. It's gorgeous. Thanks for sharing the many ways in which they can be used.

Pam @ Frippery said...

Sissie you make everything prettier. I love to come here and see all the lovely decorating you do. That table is gorgeous. Love the pink. Of course Gabby is truly the crown princess of this post.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

HELLO SISSIE!

I am very glad that you came to visit me! I AM A CROWN LOVER TOO and that is why four years ago when I started my blog, I gave it the name CASTLES CROWNS AND COTTAGES because all three of these things are my favorites. I love the rhinestoned one under the cloche!

Come again on the weekend and travel with us towards our June 8 Paris trip!!! Anita

June said...

if anyone should wear a crown it should be that pretty little kitty!!!! I love all the crowns in your castle Sissie!
sending hugs...
Oh, and I am in love with the mirror in the first pic : )
