A shabby crown for Tresors de Luxe

A pretty project made with goodies from my friends at Tresors de Luxe today.

If there is one thing that I have learned throughout my 40 years it's 'Sometimes a girl just needs a crown.' It's true! On days where nothing seems to be going right, when it's time to clean the house and you're not feeling terribly glam, and even when you DO feel a bit oh-so-pretty... a crown makes everything better. I usually find myself wearing crowns on Sunday while folding laundry. 

And because you can not possibly have too many crowns, here is my newest one...

I am smitten with the pretty thing (if I do say so myself!). I do not think this is a chore crown, but suspect this is a lazing in bed and reading a good book crown. If anyone should come into my room and see me wearing this lovely thing, they will immediately know that I should be left alone and quietly leave the room without disturbing me (unless they come bearing tea and biscuits).

This headpiece was created with a length of Ivory Guipure Lace which was tea-stained and starched. To the front of the crown I added Ivory Lace Applique then embellished the heck out of it with Dusty Rose Fabric Shabby Chic Roses and White Fabric Shabby Chic Roses before sewing on a slew of pearls in various coordinating colours to finish it off.

I highly recommend making and wearing a lace crown... maybe even creating a whole collection, one for every occasion!
