I do love crowns.  I have many scattered around our home.  I see one I love and I can’t help myself.


I am enamored with the Royal family.  I think it started with Diana.  I loved her for so many reasons. 

I am pretty sure we can all agree, the Royal wedding was wonderful.

Megan’s dress was amazing as well as her veil.  Don’t even get me started on the “tiara”.  My husband and I joked that may be the reason for my love of crowns.  I’m waiting for my own “tiara”

Stand by Me was beautiful, The children being the wedding party was such a great choice and they were all precious.  Princess Charlotte couldn’t stop waiving and don’t get me started with the cheeks on this beauty.

The minister was a great addition too. There was even a bit of laughter as he was speaking.


I loved that they chose the smaller carriage and you could see the happiness on their faces.

Megan’s dress she changed into was beautiful also.

  1. The wedding ceremony was beautiful, although I missed the beginning.

    I agree the tiara and veil were lovely, but for me the dress was a bit of a disappointment. At the very least it should have been a perfect fit, but it looked more like a smock than a wedding dress befitting the occasion.

    They’re a great couple, and I’m sure will do some wonderful things with their lives.


  2. You’re the only person I know who collects crowns. Cool! I enjoyed watching the wedding, too, and thought everything was lovely. And the weather really cooperated with them, didn’t it!

  3. Love your pretty crowns! Thanks for sharing at TFT!

  4. Your crowns are so pretty. I have one, part of a garden ornament. The Royal Family is a favourite of mine, too. I remember Princess Anne’s wedding as the first one I saw, and before that, Queen Elizabeth, Charles and Anne visited our little town in northern British Columbia. I have a photo of them that I snapped during their walk through the park.
    The wedding was lovely, full of meaning and symbolism, and intensely personal.

  5. You deserve crowns Cindy, because you are a Queen, if you ask me. 🙂 I recorded the wedding and have only watched half of it. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  6. Your crowns are so pretty. Great info about crowns! Very helpful info! Your blog is very informative and creative blog. It’s very helpful. I am eagerly waiting for your next blog.
