I " SQUEALED LIKE A SISSY GIRL!!!" and I still am!!!

Okay ladies!!!!! I was out trying to focus on shopping for Christmas and find that perfect something for those on my list. I went into Pier One...
"hello". said the lady in the store
"hi" I said
"is there anything you were looking for today?"
"yes...." I said, "I know this is going to sound completely insane...but do you sell crowns?"
"YES".
The lady in that store looked a little startled when I squealed for real! I asked her to take me to them immediatley...and she did...
I was so excited!
Did you all hear me squeal? (no that was not an air raid siren...that was me!) Oh let me tell you! THE WHOLE STORE HEARD MY SQUEAL!!!
The lady walked me back to the area where the crowns were....I was holding as much composure as I could....trying not to trample the other shoppers in my stampede to the back of the shop..There they were...three little crowns.....so pretty and so desperate to be MINE!!!
I grabbed my crown and ran for the till. Clutching it in my hot little hand....No one was going to get a crown away from me! I had to pay for it immediately so that there was NO chance of losing it! There were the last three and they were identical....except...one was broken and the other was cracked...MINE IS PERFECT!!!!
Just look!
OH HAPPY DAY...I DIDN'T HAVE TO LEAVE THE STORE MAD....INSTEAD I AM SURE THEY WILL NEVER FORGET THE LUNATIC THAT PLACED THAT CROWN ON HER HEAD AND GIGGLED AND SQUEALED!
Good grief! do I really look like that today? ICK! well sorry guys...excitement has made my hair look like that! ooooh...I am a little embarrassed. I thought I looked much better than that today! lol
Thanks for the tip...and for the dozens of tips that I am sure to follow. I also am so glad to know that my insanity over these little babies is not unique!!! There sure are a lot of us uncrowned "queens" in blogland! lol
Now...if I put this dress....
and my new crown...I am sure that I could be the bell of the ball!
what? is that my size you ask? OF COURSE! don't you know I love to wear things like this just for everyday? I actually was thinking that I could wear this one when I plant some of my friendship pots this spring! lol
Ha ha...this I think would make a great lamp! it is a wire form that they have pulled the fabric over...it actually made me think of Gloria..it is for sure her size! One of my butt cheeks would fit in there and that would be it! lol
Anyway...I am still celebrating..and bouncing around...and giddy as all get out...it is sort of sad isn't it? lol
If I should get my hands on more crowns...I will pick up the double of each and send them to who ever should need one as badly as I did....I promise...
Finding my first crown is one of those days that will be remembered for a long time....it is also the day that started a new collection...and obsession. When I find her a perfect spot...I will post it. Thanks again guys! I really love the comments and the confessions....and the tips!

That is one cool looking crown, Queen Tootsie! Is it heavy? Is it going in your garden or will you be wearing it now on a regular basis? Hee, hee. :-)

Tootsie said...

This crown could have had dog poop on it and I would have bought it! lol
This is the only style there was and the only ones in town! can you imagine...when I figure out how to make them....okay easy toots...

I did't care what it looked like...and may be a little picky some day when I have lots of crowns...but I think she looks okay for the only one in the whole town!!!!

Rachael said...

Ya-hoo for you Tootsie! I love it!!

I don't know what you are talking about when you say you don't look good.....you look great for being out shopping all day. I shopped all day and look like I was hit with a Mac Truck! AS soon as I got home, I had to take off my boots and jeans and throw sweats on!

Thats AWESOME!! Good for you! Lucky duck! Pier one is 2 hours from here...(just like everything else). Maybe we could do like a traveling pants thing....you pass it on to me then I pass it on to someone else (yeah right)....We will never be able to rip it from your clutches! You're probably going to sleep with that thing, aren't you? I cant believe you came up with one so fast! Signed, Jealous Crown Seeker in Mn.

Bo said...

Oh, Queen Tootsie...I bow to you on this day...you are the most regal one! And Merry Christmas from you to you!! LOL ;-) Bo

nikkicrumpet said...

Very pretty crown you wench...I'm so jealous. I found a place in the UK that has them...but the shipping is gonna be a bit stiff. They have to figure it out and then get back to me...which doesn't sound good at all!

When you finally take the crown off of your head I want to see what you will do with it.....I am happy for you and at the same time it really sucks! I have been asking everyone I know and some I don't know about these..........crowns!!

You make a great looking queen Tootsie ! Oh my gosh, I think I am getting the itch to find a crown now !

Diane said...

Congratulations Queen Tootsie!

What's your new treasure made of???

I found fairy crowns or tiara's, I lost track of how I was searching but it was fairy something, anyway, they were really pretty & I think you & the kids would have fun making them. Might be a good snow day project. ♥

beddow said...

Well Tootsie, I guess I was clueless! I can't say as I have seen a single garden crown before today! Now I will be watching though I guess. I am glad you found one.

Lynne said...

Girl.. that is one awesome looking crown.. I'm glad you've completed your mission..you look like one happy gal...hugs ~lynne~

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

I am so glad you found your first of many crowns to come. I must say I am a little dissappointed you didn't enter a beauty pageant for the crown- it really would make a great blogging entry!

It is a very sweet crown and I am so happy for you that you found one friend!

blessings

So do we have to address you as Your Majesty now? That is one cool crown. I wonder if our Pier One has any here. I actually get the afternoon off tomorrow (Hear me squeal????) and I am popping in. ~ Robyn

Gollum said...

You look beautiful. And I love that crown. It looks great in your kitchen AND on your head.
I'm going to have to get one now. I just have to.
lol

laurie said...

I am laughing out loud about your shopping adventure (I guess it was more of an adventure for the store clerk though-she's probably still talking about this crazy lady who thinks she's a queen or something)! Love your new crown. I hope this doesn't mean I have to address you as Queen Tootsie now! laurie

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

Tootsie, You look beautiful. No more negative comments about yourself. Ok!!! I love your crown. I really want one!! I am going to have to drive about a hour to Pier One to see if I can find one. But, not today!! We are in a severe weather alert. It would be perfect in my garden. Oh, the envy of the neighborhood. lol
Hugs, Terrie
