I embellished a paper mache heart shaped box
with vintage sheet music, paint, glitter, crepe paper flower,
button and jewel, fabric flower leaves, and pom-pom trim.
Isn't pom-pom trim just the happiest?!?!
Purchased this adorable little chair at an antique shop for $10.
love love love !!!
Close-up of the happy pom-pom trim so you can see the
big pink glass beads glued on for feet.
The flower-seated chair is the perfect perch
for my Flower Faerie Crown that I made last summer
(Now, for more opportunitues to wear it....where does one wear a faerie crown anyway?)
(Can you tell I am ready for spring???)
This glittered angel is one of my favorite things in my studio.
She likes to wear the crown Anita made for me, and hold the
glittered 'Queen' star wand

A sheer creamy flower with jewel center clipped onto the lamp shade
of the crystally lamp from TJ's.
Sitting upon a crystal and brass base to make it taller.
Above is one of the crowns from my collection.
