Show Me Your Crown

Today is Vintage Bella Studio's
Show Me Your Crown Day
Click on the image below to find out who else is showing you their crown!

This Roman-style wreath crown sits on Irving's head, while he holds some gold coins I use in art, and keeps an eye on things on one of the supply shelves.

This glittered crown sits in front of my jar of rhinestones.
Mostly it just sits there and looks fabulous.
The vintage German glass glitter is starting to tarnish
and I'm allowing it to grow old gracefully.

This is my newest crown. It was made by Gabriela Dellworth, and I won it
on her blog give-away...aren't I the lucky boy?!

This little crown doubles as a storage bowl for precious finds ...
things like brass findings or broken jewelry.
If you look in the back, you'll see my frog prince, wearing his crown as well!
That's my crown collection ... not as extensive as others' - but I love them. I'm always keeping my eye out for new ones...but they're just not that easy to find! What I really want is a coronation crown.

For a truly, truly enviable collection of crowns, check out Anita's incredible collection at Castles, Crowns and Cottages. It's quite an eyeful!

Be sure to check out Vintage Bella Studio to see the other participants' crowns ... and then go make something beautiful - maybe a crown!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Hello dearest,
How sweet you are to mention my post! I didn't know that you collected crowns as well! AND that you were a prom king...but just by knowing a little bit of your personality, that doesn't surprise me now; you prince, you! Keep you eyes open for that crown of your dreams...I will keep my eyes wide open for you as well! Have a super fun day, all covered in glitter I hope! Bisous, Anita

Fabulous crowns! And I love your frog prince! =) I haven't any crowns... pity! But after seeing all these crowns today I am now on the hunt.

Valerie said...

Love all your crowns both won and collected.

And yes, saw the enchanting frog prince in the photo - he is so cute.

The Whispering Poppies said...

PS - you were in a production of Rocky Horror??? How FUN! I saw it the first time at the Cape Cinema in Dennis ~ it was a midnight showing and the seats all had slipcovers to keep them clean during audience participation. Now you KNOW on the Cape we had some wild participants! =)

Ingrid Mida said...

What a treat to see a little bit of your studio. Don't hate me but I actually prefer tiaras! LOL!

Talking Horses Arts said...

Crowns are special..aren't they!They represent something that we all would like or want..right?LOL

Vintage German glass glitter that is beginning to tarnish sounds wonderful! I like that Irving is sporting a crown of his own! ~Lori

Judy said...

Love the tour of your crown collection! I am going to check out that blog -- second time I have read about it today. Don't have all that many here, but do have a few. Guess I will blog about my crowns and give a short tour.

Tarnished glass glitter is beautiful!

Coastal Sisters said...

YSLGuy said...

I loved seeing little glimpses of your studio!

AwtemNymf said...

Wow- look at the eye candy Tristan! I'm blog hopping and admiring everyone's crowns. What a blog party- wish I knew about it a while ago. I don't own a crown, but would have love to create one.... i love german glass glitter and have mica flakes I would have loved to dabble with! I enjoyed viewing your collection. What a handsome frog and loved Irving's crown too. Isn't it fun to watch german glass glitter tarnish over time. *winks*

The Wrought Iron Gate said...

I love that you have a Roman wreath crown.....wish I'd thought to make one. The frog prince is very clever, as well. Love your blog. Your posts are filled with whimsy and fun.

Best Wishes,
Kay

gypsylulu said...

Ahhh, a glimpse into your neat, organized working parlor, Tristan...love seeing your interesting "stuff" lol!
Life would be dull without our "stuff" ...Love your crowns...
guess i'll be on the lookout for mine! love it!

LiLi M. said...

What I love most is that we see more of anyone around here than their crowns. Who would have thought you did NOT have a coronation crown? I love to peek in your studio (more, more, more!)! Btw I love your crowns too! Have a happy show me your crown day!

A Fanciful Twist said...

Crowns are just so enchanting and wonderful, I can't ever get enough of looking at them...

But, what I really adore too is looking in on your shelves and nooks. I love trinkets and treasures and things for making things!! Wonderful!

Oh and Irving, oh Irving ;) Gotta love him!

debi @ life in my studio said...

Love your crowns...so very pretty! This is a fun party!

Rhonda Roo said...

Oh, you are true to your word you are-Sparkle! Shimmer! Glimmer! Gleam!
Fabulous....
PS But, but-no mention of Judy Garlands BDay?????

Hello Tristan,

Thank you for letting me know about this little gem. I just love all the great ideas out there for getting bloggers to interact with each other. I've been wanting a way to do this for a few weeks and now you have shown me 2 ways.

Now, time to go make something beautiful! Wishing you fairy magic!

Cheers! =D

TattingChic said...

Your crowns are lovely! :)

Jenny Fowler said...

Everyone has so many crowns to show off. Yours are lovely and I'm so glad that you shared!

Deborah said...

Irvin is so cute. I adore seeing glimpses of other people's studios and all the bits and pieces they create with. I wish my work space was that tidy or spacious. I am jealous.

Saucy said...

Tristan,

So glad we both took part in this little party, so I could find your blog. When all the excitement has died down from "Show Me Your Crown" I will be back for a good long visit... I suspect I might get hooked on this blog.

See you after holidays!

KatCollects said...

You quite a collection and they're all different. Love that. My fave is the wreath crown :-)

Now I know why you create so many beautiful creations. To be surrounded with these things is just an inspiration. And then you get to enjoy what you do and feel like royalty :-)
