I NEEEEED TO BE A "QUEEN" Please help me!!!

Oh the pain....can't you just feel my pain? What in the world is causing my pain you ask?
I NEED A CROWN!!!!!!!
The Chrissy at The Apothecary Shop Blog has been taunting me....like you have no idea! (well Cindy has an idea) I want a crown soooo bad...and she just keeps posting her beautiful crowns...showing them off...and getting quite a stash going if I do say so myself! It is unreal how badly I NEEEEEED a crown.... and the worst? Chrissy had no clue she was making me so crazy until the other day!~ this has been going on for a while tho...

Now I thought I was alone in this pain...but got a comment from a wonderful friend, Cindy, (who also has a blog....but I don't want to "out" her addiction to this crown business too much) said to me that she too has been silently hurting for one...or more as well . How can something so small...so beautiful....so decadent....be so painful? Is it really that bad? yes...yes it is.

I am supposed to be Christmas shopping....so I go to the gift shop...supposedly looking for a gift for a friend....but NO.....I am looking for CROWNS! And....there are none...so I get discouraged and go home. No gift for my friend...

I am supposed to be getting my kid's skates sharpened...but see a gift shop on the left...so I forgot to sharpen his skates....cause I was looking for a crown....and there are none....I got cranky and went home instead. (good thing they weren't badly dull)

My 9,8 and 3 year old children know Mommy wants a crown so bad....that I know they got me a dollar store tiara for Christmas....even they know how desperate I am!

My 3 year old daughter (Busy) made me an orange construction paper crown at school last week....it ripped and now has a little tape on it....it is just NOT the same! Yes...its orange! stop laughing at me!

I should be sleeping...but NO! I am online coveting the crowns...and searching the Internet for a place to get one for me. Christmas gifts? NO!!!! CROWNS??? Yes!!!!Now can you blame me? LOOK!!!! How wonderful would that look on my head..I mean in my garden/house? It is no surprise that I NEED one! My pain is just great...I am obsessed with being a "queen" so to speak.....does anyone know where I am going to find a crown....(other than the UK?) Guys...this is an emergency...I (and possibly Cindy) could die without a crown....seriously....or my "husband" could end up with an "injury" lol (just kidding) My eyes could get all sunken in, and dark...my hair could be all messy....I could WEAR MY GLASSES!!!! It could get really UGLY around here guys....seriously...do you want to see my glasses? (I didn't think so) Please...if you know where I can get a crown...by all means let me know...(and I promise to tell my friend Cindy) (no...my fingers are not crossed! lol) Keep in mind ...I am a Canadian...and some of these places online are a little sticky about mailing across customs...even if it is to save a life...or reputation...yea..how insensitive eh?

Don't worry Cindy....Tootsie is ON THE CASE....Chrissy....we will soon stop stalking you with crown comments....(my fingers are crossed) lol


Well? Why are you still here? My head-I mean garden- is still naked!!!! GO PEOPLE! GO! FIND ME A CROWN....OR IT'S OFF WITH YOUR HEAD! Oh man? did I say that? yea..I really have to find one soon...


(also...anywhere you see the LOL...it is not a giggle from a nice lady....it is the foreboding cackle of an obsessed Tootsie!)

Hi tootsie. I too have been caught up in Chrissys enchanted crown spell. And she won't share where she found all her fabulous crowns. It is beyond cruel. I too have become obsessed. But I will share where I found a few of them at not too terrible prices. I don't know if they ship to Canada but it wouldn't hurt to find out?
http://www.wisteria.com/searchprods.asp Anyhoo I can't stand to see another person in pain because of the cruel and adorable talented Chrissy.....Oh and she says "She never paid more than $20 for hers......Cruel I tell ya. Vanna

Diane said...

Okay Queen Tootsie, do you want a tiara type of crown or a garden ornament type of crown??? I'm looking on ebay & have narrowed it down to under 5000. I need just a few more parameters.....

Coloradolady said...

Rachael said...

I hope you find that crown, Tootsie! You deserve a beautiful, sparkly and shiny one too...good luck:-)

Kristen said...

I feel your pain. I've seen their crowns and they are so pretty. I did find this one on amazon
http://www.amazon.com/Napa-Home-Garden-Tealight-Centerpiece/dp/B001CMTB5A
It kinda looks like a pumpkin but I'm sure you could doctor it up to make it look more like a crown.

Jessica said...

I'm on a mission! :)

Chrissy said...

You little bugger, on my way to work and I have laughed so hard my make up has run.... I am a Cosmetician you know... I have to look good when I go to work!!!!!!My goodness you are toooo funny!! I am telling you, go onto the Urban Barn website, they are in Canada...they should ship you one no problem, tell them I sent you!!!hahahahahaha(SORRY)could not resist!Well.... I do feel your pain, I had seen these little darlings months and months before I could get my hands on one(or three) hahhaha sorry!!!! Gotta go sell overpriced skincare, I will pop over after work, if you'll let me in!!!!!

Darla said...

I have also wondered about where to find a crown myself. I do feel "some" of your pain. I'll keep my eyes open for you!!

Ma'dame French said...

Shelia said...

Picket said...

Good grief Toots...I had no idea! lol lol I haven't seen one of those things around my neck of the woods & I doubt seriously they'd be in any of the antique stores around here up in amongst the butter churns & the wash boards! lol I'm sure if Chrissy knew your pain she'd share one of her's...oh wait..I know Chrissy...no she won't! lol lol I'm sure you find one soon though.

I love that last post girl..those ornaments on the mirrors are gorgeous but girl I loved those plates....tell me the name & maker of them!!!! Take care girl and I hope you get your crown soon!

kel said...

Girl.. you get that crown!! You deserve it!

profenretraite said...

Hey Tootsie...You are not alone in your crown obsession. Have you met Vanna over at Delusions of Grandeur? She just did a crown post, too. That crown sure does look good in the garden I must say. Now you've got me thinking....hmmmmm....Debbie

Darla said...

I have looked under antique, vintage, prom, king, and men's crowns!! Where in the hell did she find those? What's another name for them? wonder if we could do a blog search to see if anyone else has them, even for sale.

Helen said...

For all it's worth .... I "crown" you Queen Tootsie for a Day!

Happy To Be said...

Too funny girl...you want me to crown you?? I will look for one and see what I can do..now get off my butt and find me a bust...get your mind out of the gutter girl...I mean a bust to sit on a table like a french one..how ever I could use a new set of the others also...hope you have a great day..good luck with the crown don't want you being in glasses with gray hair...hugs and smiles Gloria

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

Oh I wished I could have found one for you - I would have tucked it in your package- but alas, no crowns here!! I think there has been a huge run on crowns and the only solution I see is that you will have to enter a beauty contest in order to get one! You are beautiful so we know you are certain to receive the crown!!

SchmeckyGirl said...

LOL!!! Your kids are so adorable! And thoughtful!

Have you tried ebay.com?

cindy said...

Well, ...I have exhausted my search on the internet...but I see here there are a few more options!!! I couldnt even find good pictures like you did! and if we have to enter a beauty pageant to get one...well count me out. I'm not sayin I'm a dog or anything.... I just dont have any talent! The hunt continues..... Cindy

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

OMG!!! You have no idea how badly I want a crown. I have been searching. And yes, the only one I found was from the UK. This is getting to be serious business. Larry has no idea that I want one. It on my secret wish list for Santa. I can't wait to see the results you get from this post. My neighbor would all be in so.. much envy!!! If you find one let me know! Hugs, Terrie

momstheword said...

Ooooh, scared-of-you!LOL! I don't know that I have ever seen a crown. I probably have but just never really noticed it before. If I'd known how painful it was for you, I'd have picked you one up, dear sister!

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

I saw some crowns in Hobby Lobby...they were pretty big, but I don't think they were the outdoor kind...I'll keep my eyes peeled. Now, I'm really here for another reason! :-) I just read a very funny story written by another Canadian...ya gotta go read it...here's the link:

What fun I had reading your posts. I've been here awhile now.
LOVE your gardens and your humor.
I haven't been crazy for a crown like you but now you got me thinking... hum maybe it's time.

Just wanted to say HI from Ottawa

lvroftiques said...

Toots I LOVE your new crown!! And it's a white one too! And I NEED a white one!! Gotta break up all that gold tone dontcha know. I have to tell ya, I haven't been to Pier One in years....and we are having a snow storm....And I am seriously considering driving over to the mall to see if our Pier One has a crown....That's how obsessed I am. I beg of your do NOT buy another one! You will only look at two and WISH you had a third!(Gollums rule of three and all) Now I'm looking for my third and who knows when this crazy insanity will stop?? And a garden crown is starting to look completely necessary! Don't go down this same lonley path of pain......*winks* Vanna
