Crown Swap — I feel like a Princess!

 A few weeks ago I signed up to participate in a really fun crown swap hosted by my friend, the sweet and talented Molly @ Fleur De Bee.
And right before I left on my trip a big, beautiful package arrived!!
I opened the package up and was amazed at the beautiful goodies inside. My partner — Christine @ A Work In Progress sent me the most amazing treasures. Look at this crown — it is beyond beautiful and she made it herself! Wow – I still cannot believe it.   The inside is BURLAP and look at the craftmanship. It has this gorgeous brooch on the front and the bottom of the crown is metal and it looks like she welded to attain the correct shape. Plus sparkles and jewels on the bottom.
It is stunning.
And it came in a beautiful decoupaged box with a tassel on top. Then I discovered this beautiful necklace in an amazing crown jewelry box. I love the colors and it has a crown inside the pendant. SO pretty!
And this colorful bucket with the cutest vinyl crown, plus a beautiful jewel and a crown purse hanger!
And that’s not all. There was also this little white cloth crown sack and inside were crown cookie cutters, sprinkles and frosting — perfect for those cookie tiaras that the girls and I can make!
Thank you so much Christine for all of these wonderful goodies.
I am so amazed and thrilled and in awe. 
 Thank you Molly for putting the swap together!
It was great fun getting to know Christine!
She is amazingly talented!!!

  5. Wow! What an amazing package to receive. Everything is really cute. I popped over to Michelle's blog and saw what you sent her. FABULOUS! :)

    Jen, so glad you like the crown and all of it's accompaniments. The base of the crown is actually a ductwork collar and straps from the hardware store that I colored with alcohol inks and then attached bits of vintage trim and baubles to. 😉 It was fun seeing it come together. Hope you had a fantastic vacation, it sounded like a really nice trip.

    We have been collecting crowns all year so we can do a crown themed Christmas tree this year! We are crown lovin' fools over here!

    Your crown package is just divine! Everything is so gorgeous!

    Oh my gosh! Look at all that great crown stuff you got, Jen! I love crowns, too. I can't believe she actually made that crown ~ it's gorgeous! I just love everything you got.

    I'm trying to get a swap going on my blog {posted today} if you might be interested. No actual theme like here though.
