PINK SATURDAY and my very first
MERMAID CROWN

I decided to combine the beauty of bridal lace and pearls with the beachy look of precious seashells. The outcome was an over-the-top "Mermaid Crown". Some of you may even call it a "Siren By the Sea Crown". Either way, I think the combination is lovely, don't you?

Wouldn't you feel like the "Queen of the Sea" with this pretty Crown? What a lovely conversation piece for your home or a stunning crown to wear at a fun, seaside event. I really enjoyed making it along with several other seashell lovelies. I hope you enjoyed seeing it. It's for sale on Elegance & Whimsy.

Enjoy the view and have a great weekend everyone.

Hi Cathy :) That crown is just spectacular!! I agree, that does go quite well with your apron. You can do your housework wearing the apron and the crown. I'd like to see a picture of that!! :)

Happy Pink Saturday to you!
