A Crown Was Commissioned!!

Hope you all had a great weekend!!!

As some of you know, I have been making crowns and party hats, for Garden Memories, as well as Jennifer Grey's Old Painted Cottage.

Yesterday I got an email from Barbara, the lovely proprietor of Garden Memories. She had a woman in her shop who saw my crowns, and hats. She asked Barbara if I could make a 40Th birthday crown for her husband. Of course I could. I had to think about it for awhile though. I hadn't ever made a man's crown. Not too frilly, not too glittery, not any pink in sight. The woman wanted black, gold and silver. This is what I came up with. Oh, and she wanted it to say Sir Mark. I think it turned out pretty well. Not girly at all.

So this is what I have been up to lately. My first King crown, or Sir crown. It was fun to make, and I hope they like it.

Have a good Monday!!


Love,
Rosemary

Looks great - not too girly at all. I wouldn't have known where to begin for a man's crown. Great job.

What a wonderful crown! I think you did a fantastic job with it. Crowns are so much fun; I've not ever made one but I do have a tremendous admiration for those who do.

Rosemary, your King crown is very handsome, Sir Mark is going to be very regal wearing his crown. What a sweet wife he has. Hugs, Linda

Love the king crown. I always find it difficult to make something for a specific person. It's easier for me to make it for me and hope someone else likes it enough to buy it. Hope you had fun, and maybe you've got a new product there.
