Crowned With Love



I know anything royal related is "old hat" by now. 
But I was loving crowns before the royal craze.

In decor.







The yummy.


The adorable.



The funny.

The delicately detailed.



I recently bought this ribbon from Raggy Girl Vintage for my daughter's birthday.  She loved it!

Another favorite Etsy seller, A Cozy Cup of Tea makes this sweet red ticking crown pillow.

Loveleigh Treasures is giving away this cute bag.

Are you a princess or a diva?

I am definitely a Princess! I love the beautiful ribbon you found and the crown that is met or iron...oh and the crown above the fabric! Gorgeous photos! Very different from my post this morning! lol ♥

Heather said...

I am definitely a princess too! I love all these images...oh so pretty!

Princess or diva? I did not know that one had to choose but to be what she wishes as any given moment.... (wink, wink)

We call one of our rooms "the princess room" for daughter #2 and the other daughter is called "Queen Bee" (both are divas, too!)

I love that room with the black crowns on the wall and I'll take a cookie to go with that - hah! Love this post, Tammy!

I like to wear a tiara on my birthday :) How funny is the stencil on the toilet?

Trisha said...

I have 3 tiara's that I will keep forever and I always like to find an excuse to wear them!! This post has inspired me to do one about my tiara's now...thank you!

I have my wedding tiara that I LOVE and will never get rid of!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

this was a fun post. I love crowns and have seen some incredible ones for sale on Etsy with an equally incredible price tag. I wore a tiara on my wedding so I guess I am a princess. Divas are spoiled rotten, so that would not be me.

Wish I had a little princess to buy for. Really sweet ribbon you found for your daughter. I'm definitely not a diva... not good with fashion. I really like the pillows and handbags. They add a touch of whimsy to the ho hum. I think they look beautiful on brides, as well.
Have a great day my friend :)

Love it...Queen of Everything! The crown on the toilet..too funny! ;D

LOVIN all the crowns. I think we all need a crown to celebrate the princess (or queen) we are.....

Pamela said...

Beautiful post Tammy!!
I love the crown above a bed ! I would love one of those fancy crowns for my table..

Cindy said...

Hello sweet friend,
I'm neither a princess or a diva, I'm just me.:D I love crowns, though, I have one and I have to smile whenever I see it.
I love all of your great images today. Perhaps you should be a Canadian, we see Royalty on a fairly regular basis because we are a Commonwealth Country. I have seen all of them except for Charles boys, I think.
Have a sweet day!
Hugs, Cindy

Princess over here according to my spouse. I love the cut outs and the toilet with the crown is genius.

Bringing Pretty Back said...

OHHHHHHHHHH! LOVE IT! Is there anything girlier than a tierra! Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could just wear them around! haha! At the grocery store~ out to dinner ~ thrifting! HEEEE!
Great PRETTY post!
Have a pretty day!

Gina said...

Can I be both a princess AND a diva??? LOL I love all the beautiful crown & tiara pictures. (even the funny ones) A perfect post for this princess AND diva!

Jo said...

I'm going with princess ... clearly there are many options for wearing or displaying ones crowns and tiaras!


Robin said...

I haven't jumped on the "crown" bandwagon yet but after setting eyes on your first example I'm changing my tune! I love the chicken wire, what a unique accent, adorable.

Stacy's Shabby Shoppe said...

Wow, love all crown pics! Speaking of crowns...I was at a luncheon today where all 17 of us were wearing either crowns or tiaras! It was awesome! ~Stacy~ xo

Barbara Rosenzweig said...

favorite. post. ever.

Denise said...

Oh, I am absolutely a Princess. Always and always. Which must be why I have always loved crowns. You have some fabulous images. Thanks for the eye candy!

podso said...

Princess stuff for little girls is certainly a rage and total fun. I was quite taken by the crown shaped toast! Fun post!

Anita said...

After looking at all these images and uses for crowns and tiaras, I can see how putting on one can immediately tranform you into a queen, princess, or diva!

I agree with podso...fun post!

laxsupermom said...

What a fun post! Really fabulous images! Love the little crown shaped tea sandwiches. What fun for a tea party themed little girl's party. Thanks for sharing.

This is a lovely post! And I love this quote:

Happy Wednesday to you!!!

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

Love all your crown images! You must be spending as much time on Pinterest as I am!!! A new addiction ~ ask dr. hubby if he has a pill that will cure it!! LOL Sometime you need to tell me how to add the credits back to the photos we find there. I'm kinda "challenged" in that area!

Love this post....and yes, I'm a princess, too!

Big TX Hugs,

I have to be honest and admit that I'm a diva. My sweet little girl (who just turned 27) is the princess.

Crowns have never done much for me but you've certainly got me changing my mind. They are kind of fun, aren't they?

Sares said...

Crowns crowns everywhere! One for each of us I think. Now I know why my cookie cutter caught your eye! Why is it they are so fun to use in our decor? Wishful thinking, all us girls long to be a Princess deep down, LOL! Thank you for sharing my Junk Queen bag, it was very sweet of you. Have a great Thursday Queen Tammy!

Yep, A princess for sure! My friends gave me a tiara for my birthday. Love all the crown images.

KAT said...

LOVE the painting of the royal slippers and crown!

Gypsy Heart said...

I'm going to consider myself as a Queen and a Diva. Is that ok? :-) Seriously, I do love crowns and these pics are adorable! Lots of interesting ways to decorate ~
