Some of my friends might say that once I decide to do something theres no stopping me, o.k. all of them may say that.....so as you know our bedroom is boring me so I have started to make some changes. It will be a while till I post cause I have asked John to make me something and he is busy, but he will as soon as he has time( gosh I am mad about him)So here is a taste of where I am going with my ideas, just a sneak peak for now...oh, and yes that is another crown( a gift from John my dh)

Hi! Hope your birthday was a great one! I love your inspiration pictures - what are you having built??? And where did you find another crown . . . it took me weeks just to find one! I love mine but now I really want a skinny one like yours. By the way, I posted a pic - it's named My new crown! I found the candleholders at the Goodwill and painted them -they were yellow. :) sarah

Girlfriend I wanna see your new crown!!! And there must have been something in the air because I bought myself another crown too!! Again I say "It's all your fault!!" Lol!! Well that's what I'm telling my hubby *winks* Can't have him thinking it's "Moi" Lol! I'm addicted! After all you need three or more for it to be a collection right? And I'm all about collections! I also want to see more of your master bedroom. Whatcha doin'? Can't wait to see! Oh and Chrissy I found this from the blog of one of my friends:

Hi Sea, LOVE the crown. Is this a new trend??? About a year or so ago I saw a beautifully simple pillow with a crown that was stamped(?) on a piece of linen. It caught my eye, it was beautiful. I have 2 crowns, one is a metal one with stones on my Infant of Prague, and the other is the top to a clear glass jar that I use to hold potpourri. "Talk" soon!

Sue said...

of course you can copy the poem, I got it in an email today and thought it was very moving! I forgot to ask my bestest blogging sister how her birthday night went! Hope you had a good one! Love ya sweetie! xo

Melissa Miller said...

Oh I see the black and white material on the chair. It's really pretty. Love the silver crown too.
This is exciting! Can't wait for the big reveal!

Happy belated birthday!!!
Today is my nephew Jeremy's 6th. Goodness it seems like yesterday...
He has such a personality. My sis is really kept on her toes with this little man. LOL!
When was yours?
Hope it was wonderful!!! ;)
