PINK SATURDAY and my very first

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.

Some of you may already know her, but some of you may not. I wanted to share an amazingly talented lady with all of my blogging friends. Her name is Holly from HollyLovesArt.

Holly creates the most over-the-top, one-of-a-kind, aprons. She posted this stunning, mermaid, apron on her blog the other day and I immediately was drawn to it. Of course it was Pink and it has tons of vintage lace on it. Right then and there I knew I HAD TO HAVE IT.

I emailed Holly and she said "no problem it's yours". It arrived today and all I can say is I'm in LOVE. I adore my new "mermaid" apron AND of course, it is so much prettier in person. All the embellishments are sewn on by hand. A gorgeous mermaid is surrounded by ribbon and pearls. The gorgeous yoyos are adorned with VERY SPARKLY vintage buttons and vintage hankies hang from here and there.

I guess I just want to say "HOLLY I LOVE IT" and "THANK YOU" for your artwork. I will wear my "mermaid apron" with pride. Can't wait to meet you in person. xo
