Marie Antoinette Crown

Last month when I was blogging all over the universe inviting ladies to participate in my Valentine swap, I read so many new blogs and made tons of new friends.

One of the most enchanting ladies I met was Jacqueline, from Once Upon a Fairyland blog. She dubbed me a "Queen in Training" since this was my first visit to her blog. Jacqueline mailed me a "Queen in Training" gift tag and an adorable vintage Valentine tucked inside a lovely "Believe" Mary Engelbreit card.

I decided since I am now Officially a Queen in Training, I need my own Crown. I've been itching to create something spectacular, glittery and over-the-top to celebrate my love of Marie Antoinette. This is what I created this week. I absolutely love every inch of this glittery crown.

I thought I would share it with you, because we KNOW that all girls are "Princesses", but all ladies are "Queens"! At least in my Castle.


I'd love to have you "Follow" my blog. Just click the "Follow"
