My Crowning Glory

Do you remember that one kid in school
who was ALWAYS the last to finish
and the class ALWAYS had to wait on that person before the teacher could move on the the next subject?

Well, that kid is me.
Always, it's me.

It was especially me, during the Gilded Life's crown class.
Although nobody had to wait this time, since I just tucked it away knowing I could finish it at home.
But I am the one person in the class picture with an unfinished crown.

However I'm okay with being the only one who didn't finish their crown in class,
because I really wanted to change mine up from the example and use these hydrangea blossoms on it.

They are left over blossoms that adorned the arbor and center pieces at my wedding 8 1/2 years ago.

And I couldn't be more please with the results.


I want to give a BIG thank you to all of you who took the time to vote on our pumpkin carving contest!
We tallied votes from four facebook profiles and this blog and it was a very close race for awhile there.
But, Jack came out ahead 33 to 25.
We drew numbers to see who would be teamed with who and this was the first year it was parents against boys.
The boys had a great plan with their subject choice, thinking to pull in votes from all age groups with such a nostalgic childhood character, and they ruled the contest for quite awhile, but in the end The Count just couldn't count high enough.
Sorry boys.
Maybe next year.

The crown is absolutely beautiful, and I'm sure pretty special to you since it's got some of your wedding flowers on it.

I love that you used your wedding flowers! But, I must add, mine is not finished either!

Alisa, this is just gorgeous. Is it a miniature or can it actually be worn?

Oh Alisa, this crone is so very beautifull- love the fragile added flowers, on the metal crone-it is gorgeus, dear.
Hugs, Dorthe

I think those flowers are perfect on your crown. They make it very special & one of a kind. YOU always do beautiful work Alisa. I am thinking about taking the flowers from my Crowndalier off & using something else. Since I glittered the whole thing I'm just not "with" the flowers I put on it. It was great to see you at Gilded Girls. HUGS! Charlene
