No Queens were Harmed in the MAKING of This Crown

One of these crowns is my own creation...and one is not...can you see the one?
I have been a busy girl! Not only did the crown I asked the "Urban Barn" store come in....but it was 1/2 price! got it for $16! yea me! I also got busy and went to work fashioning my own design! (please excuse the giant mess that my kitchen is in when you are looking at the photos)
I am pretty sure you will be able to tell immediately which one is home made...and which one is not... All I had to say to myself is...."not bad for a first try!"

Okay I finally have the courage to ask this and show my lack of decorating sense....just when did the crown obsession start and is it a Canada thing? I'm wondering if I'm missing something here and they're really starting to call to me too! I think you did a fabulous job whichever one you made! Oh, and I absolutely don't see ANY MESS in your kitchen! Cindy

Good going Tootsie...I'll bet we'll be seeing a crown or two in your flowers soon! ;-) Bo

Bridget said...

I'm guessing you made the little one. Are you going to tell us which one you made?

nikkicrumpet said...

WELL I'll be bamboozled I can't believe you made that!!! You did a really REALLY great job! I would imagine you'll never need to buy another crown again!!!

Tamara Jansen said...

Hey Tootsie, we're just busy here at the greenhouse trying to hire merchandisers/plant enthusiasts for our Garden Centers from BC to AB to MB and I'm wondering if you might have some peeps out your way who might be interested in some part time work in the Spring? It's 2 to 3 hours per day watering our plants, tidying up, picking out the bad plants that won't sell, etc.

Any takers out there? I thought you might know someone who knows someone!

janet said...

did i miss something here, as i cant tell which one you made, so girl you must really be creative, correct me if im wrong, but i bet its for your garden.....stop over, i have added a little spring, not done yet but its a start, but be prepared, no comparison to your lovely gardens...lol
hugs
janet

Raxx - A day in the life said...

Is there no limit to your talents!!?? I am really impressed and dying to know which crown you made!!

ksarra said...

Wow!!! Is there anything you can't do when you decide to try it??? I love the fact that you made your own crown. GOOOOO Tootsie!

Jill said...

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

Great first try! I can see many more crowns being crafted!

beddow said...

Great job! You are a very talented lady.

lvroftiques said...

Tootsie!! How have ya been girl?!! I came over here for some crown therapy *winks* I knew you wouldn't let me down! Lol! But girl I had no idea you'd be making them! And not a bad effort at all my friend!! I have really missed reading your blog and I have to tell ya you're totally cracking me up with all your angst over your cactus. Ya see it's the one and only plant I've ever been able to grow...in large part because I totally ignore them for months sometimes! Not delicate at all!! And I just find it so ironic that I have zero trouble with cactus but I can't keep anything else living to save my life! Sorry about that I just couldn't help myself! Oh BTW I love your new crown hook too! Vanna

Julie said...

I cheated! I saw your post from today, and then found this earlier one! What a great job you did! It is amazing when you can make such neat things form a bunch of scraps!!! Especailly a CROWN!!!
