LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Crown Swap For Breezy From Me

Yesterday I shared what my Awesome swap partner Breezy sent me. Here is what I sent her :
I was really intimidated as I haven't made a crown before, but it ended up being easier than I thought and SO much fun to create !! There is a little Princess in all of us :)
I used vintage pink wallpaper with pretty pink and blue flowers, white crepe paper, Pink Rhinestone chain, millinery, a sparkly pink and silver rhinestone snowflake ornament (that I bought last year from Michael's), vintage crochet, and a beautiful image of Marie Antoinette, surrounded by more rhinestones. I Love it, I sure hope she did :) :)
I embellished this Marie-esque shoe with a vintage rhinestone shoe clip, millinery and ribbons. And, look at that CUTE tiny crown bottle !!! I was so excited when I found that for her. It is just a vintage mini liquor bottle, but perfect to store some glass glitter :) Also a Monogrammed Hankie with her initial :)
I found this sweet little Rhinestone frame which I added a glittered crown to.
A few baubles to craft with.
Vintage Silver Baby spoons. One for New baby Knox and the other for Sweet Amelie :) :)An Antique Sheet Music Hymn book for children with beautiful weathered pages and precious lyrics. Also a mini crown I made her with Mica glitter, roses, a pearl and rhinestone finding, laces and ribbons. :)
A wee box with an antique skeleton key, and a surprise inside..............................Ta Da !!!! I made her a sweet charm bracelet with lots of soft beads and a few crowns :) She can add to this if she likes :)And that is the end of the LONGEST swap I have ever done :) lol !!! ( My Bad )

Thanks again Molly for Hosting this and Breezy, You Rock Sweet-pea !!

Hugs,

Rhea
