A Day in my Royal Kingdom...Wait till you see!

Today in the royal kingdom of Tootsie...we will be doing a little cleaning...a few chores and possibly a little obsessing....I also have a little surprise to share with you all! Shall we?
As I go about my day of dusting...it occurred to me...that this bowl may be a little crown-like...right? (hey Lynne...see my tray? it is very similar to yours!)

Look closer. Please say you agree.... It turns out there are crowns all over my house...some that I didn't even know I had!
Here is where I have the first two...for now.. Okay....now that we are on the topic of crowns...lets just take a little break. I am sick of dusting...lets go see what I found the other day while I was shopping!

Oh My...look what I have! I found these at the department store..they are Christmas ornaments...Yes...they are a little ugly...but I didn't buy them for their beauty...I bought them to use as a template...pattern whatever....I am going to make my own crown soon if I don't find some good ones in a store! Yes...I am desperate for a big crown...
They are small....but they are still crowns...and I will use the "form" as a guide for my own crown making....Hey! maybe I will get to use that welder I got for Christmas two years ago!!!! oooohhh....how exciting to think of ! Well...we better get back to our chores...
Okay....more dusting....I have had this box for years! It is also a little crown-ish right? Time to wash the dog's dish...
Even the Royal Dog..."Miss Pooh" has her own crown! Look at the imprint on the bottom of her food dish!!!! Okay...now I am seriously jealous...(better feed her ...lol)
Right about now...I took another break...and made a huge mess of the next part...
I went out to pick up the mail.... Okay...this is not the best way to show this...as I jumped the gun....but look!!!!
Just take a look at the wonderful gift I got!
Okay,...I got way to excited...and ripped the box open right there on the street! Look what I got from Cindy!!!!! She is my crown loving blogging friend who has the Love from Mn blog! Is she not the sweetest to send me a crown hook! I am so in love with it! I may just hang it in my greenhouse!
I think I will have to find a spot to hang this in my royal greenhouse!!!! Maybe it can be the Royal Key Holder! (will post when I find the perfect spot for her!!!!) Thank you so very much sweet friend....you are very thoughtful! Girl...you made my whole week! I was so excited that I let out a sissy girl squeal that would make Picket proud!
Pretty sure the people on this block are 100% sure I am a nut case now for sure!
I also have two crowns coming from the Urban Barn shop that just opened up here last week. I went in...showed them what I wanted...and they said they will call when they come in! woo hoo!!!
and that will be another post....I am positive!
Have a fantastic weekend in your kingdoms.....see you Monday!

You REALLY are A QUEEN, having all those Crowns around the house. It is a sign! You are the "SECOND Queen of the House" cause honey i am the FIRST.. Ok i will let you sit in the throne just for a bit, while i take a potty break, but after I am done " move your Ass out" cause my ass is to big for the both of us!!! lol... See what happens after being a Queen for so long, you get cranky and have Queen attacks... mishelle

GM Tootsie, Well, I see your still in your groove with the crowns.And I agree with you, you already have several sitting around your home. Even with the dog.

cindy said...

Tootsie, you are so welcome! I saw it and knew YOU had to have it for your kingdom! So it looks like you were getting all kinds of subliminal messages from the decor in your house......(maybe you've been a 'crown seeker' all this time and didnt know it?!) Take care ~Cindy~

Justine said...

Holy crap, but this crown thing has become an absolute obsession with you! There will soon be crowns all over your house! But I have to tell you, the second I saw that first pic, I said to myself, "Wait, that thingy there actually looks like a crown!"
Now let me say, those ornaments are a bit, um... ugly. Well, the white one doesn't look too bad, but I can't wait to see how you make your own!!!!

And wow, Cindy really rocked it with that hook! Cindy and I are new friends :o )

Justine :o )

Sweetie said...

I love your crowns. Just for fun I am going to look for crowns the next time that I go shopping. I'm anxious to see the crown(s) you create. Just one thing - don't you hate dusting? I think that is my least favorite hoursehold chore - and I don't have a favorite.
Hugs,
Sweetie

Lady Katherine said...

It does look like a crown, and that pink rose bowl is the shape too! Love all your crowns! Don't you love getting gifts in the mail. Just makes your day brighter! Remember your turds? Come look at my Pink Saturday Post, someone left a comment that reminded me of your turds. lol
