More Crown Love!

I love soldering, so when my friend created these darling little crowns from something that she saw in my studio I knew what I'd be doing with them. They are fun, original and make great gifts as either a necklace, keychain or a charm to hang from your handbag. 

they're made from repurposed rusty iron

and come in your choice of a flour de lis, crosses or points with circles

 some are plain, some have rhinestones and some have a vintage earring 

 but there are no two alike

 you may simply purchase one or purchase (10+) wholesale 

For the diva in you, your favorite crown lover or your shoppe!

They'll be in my Etsy shoppe as soon as time allows, but in the mean time feel free to message me for more information or to place a special order. 


I love to create!

What do you do when you need a creative fix and your son is bored? You mix up some flour and water, gather up some newspaper, some items to cover and do a paper mache project! 

I've been wanting to repurpose this wicker dress form with French book pages for quite some time. I actually had it in my garage sale a few weeks ago and pulled it out after someone commented on how cool it was. I'm so happy that I did. 

I covered the body with newspaper and let it dry overnight. 

While it was drying, I brought out a variety of French books I've been collecting and started ripping out the pages. I went through my scrapbooking papers and chose some that I liked along with some other photos that I'd been saving for a unknown project. 

The next morning, I added the torn pages, a bit of lace, some dried roses, sari silk ribbon, a vintage brooch and a vintage flower bead.

 Coffee and crafts…there’s nothing better.

This is the back.
 I added a crown I made and later found a birds nest on the ground that fit inside perfectly.

I was thinking about what type of skirt to add around the bottom and a friend who was over pointed to the garland that I had hanging in my studio and said that it would be cute. I added it and Viola! 

It was perfect! 

I hope my son gets bored again soon.
