can you keep a secret...

I started another collection.
Sshh...don't tell Jim.

I really didn't mean to.

You see, I bought this pretty crown back in June...


Then my good friend gave me this little beauty...

I just love the detail, even in the shadows...
Thank you Mary Ellen!

Remember when I told you about the fun day I had with my girlfriends shopping?
Well, I wore this picked this up while shopping that day too...

I tucked in the pretty sachet from Judy...

Are you loving the shadows too...




Of course I grouped my new collection together...


And had a fun photo shoot in my Paris Hotel Suite...




I have a question for you...

With all these crowns in here now, should I call it my Royal Paris Hotel Suite?

These have been sneaking in since June and Jim has not noticed yet!

Let's keep my new collection our secret  ;)  !!

Sharing with the French Cupboard for French Inspiration Thursday.

They're so cute, and you're right, the shadows are wonderful! I love the way they look with your pretty wall color. Funny that your hubbie hasn't noticed.

Boy-I must be losing it! I could have sworn you shared this secret before....Hmmmm...time warp here maybe?;>) Great little crown collection you have started there. We won't tell HIM and, besides, I don't count things as a collection until I have to buy a separate cabinet for them....(you are allowed to use this excuse too) xo Diana

Hello Sandi

I share you love of crowns. I find them irresistible, but cannot explain the reason why. Perhaps they evoke a faitytale world that we secretly aspire to. You have started with three beauties.

trash talk said...

I think there maybe a conspiracy at work here. We think we start collections, but have you noticed how crowns are just falling into your lap lately? Yeah...they find us and hold us by the heart...sneaky little devils!
They're wonderful, but I gotta ask. Do I bow now when I click on?

I have the same crown you show in your first photo. After I brought it home I remembered I have a metal crown about the same size, so I thought that I really should return the other crown back to the store. It sat on the table day after day waiting to be returned. But everyday I looked at it and really loved it. Finally one day I said to myself, I love this and I'm keeping it! :)

Trisha said...

I think it is a fantastic collection! Keep up the good work!
