Crown Crush!

Hi Bloggerettes!  My latest crush seems to be crowns.  Don't know why, but I am in love with all of the frenchified stuff. 

My Sister brought me this great looking french pillow....

 When I saw this mirror image at the Garden Center, I knew it had to be mine....
When I found this stool it was painted gold with a gold fabric but of course I had to change that!
 Found this crown on canvas at Tuesday Mornings....
 Not sure where it's going to end up.  I've been playing around with different places.  Not sure about the mantle.
I plan to post photos of the fabulous Garden Center in Raleigh.
I will be doing that soon.
In the meantime, have a wonderful week!

I wonder why we love crowns so! I know I want them on everything from pillows to bottles. You now have a growing collection! I really love your mantel with your new picture and all the silver candle sticks...simple and elegant. The bench you made over is gorgeous, too. And LOVE the mirror!!

Love that mirror you found with the crown Image! And of course, the pillow and chair cushion!! I know you'll find the perfect place for the canvas :) It does look nice on the mantle.

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Well darling you are crushing because you and Rachel Ashwell think alike!! The crown is her logo, and she loves white and pink just like you. I love the canvas print on the mantle...I can see it in your header too!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

It's crown heaven at your house right now, Sissie! Love that pillow and the mirror image! I have a few crowns and, can you believe, I have no idea where to put them. I put one of my smaller ones on the head of a little boy statue for now. We'll see how long that lasts when the granddaughter is over next!

Sharon said...

It's cause you are a princess !

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

I too adore all your crowns my dear Queen Sissie! I also have a small collection. :)

Sissie- You are thrilled with all those crowns because you are the Queen of your world! You know you are! I love that little stool you painted and recovered. It is very sweet redone. I so miss our Tuesday Morning store here. It was only open a year or so before it closed. xo Diana

I love the variety in crowns. Yours are all very cool, but I love that last one on canvas the best. I don't think I have a single one. Gotta fix that!

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Great finds Sissie! I do love the mirror effect on the french frame! I have been looking for fabric with anything French on it and it is really hard to find! I love how you changed out the stool from gold to antique white! ~Hugs, Patti

Debra @ Common Ground said...

Ooooh, you've put together some wonderful Frenchie goodies. Love that wonderful footstool! xoxo

Cindy said...

Gail said...

What beautiful finds Sissie. I love that mirror! Your displays are beautiful of all your Frenchy finds.

trash talk said...

The stool is precious. Crushing on crowns is in our DNA. I mean seriously...the only reason to win the Miss America pagent is to get to wear one out in public. Right?

The crowns are great, but your collection of mercury glass candle holders is super!

Hi Sissie! You know I love the frenchy stuff, too! Hey...I spy a familiar sheep graphic on a pillow in your header! I am so tickled that somebody liked it! :-) Hope you are having a great week!...hugs...Debbie

Theresa said...

I love crowns because they remind a the other people here @ 612 that I am the queen. Ok I can't even type that without rolling my eyes and laughing! Queen, yeah right, I'm supposed to be washing dishes right now! I do love them though and you have some great examples... i love the footstool, beautiful! t. xoxoxo
