Queen for your Everyday


I have been known to utter the mantra,"Love art, eat cake and have fun." And while that sings true, I am now officially adding a new nugget to that sweet, but slightly sassy phrase. Here it is.....

"Love art, eat cake and have fun...while wearing your tiara!".

I have just devoured every decadent page of folly, trims, beads galore and paper whimsies in the wonderful book "Crowns & Tiaras" by Kerri Judd and Danyel Montecinos. These gals, and the artist contributors, exceed expectations in their fabulous how-to guide! They show just how much fun it can be to add glitter and glamour to our everyday.

The 127 pages of the soft cover book have me smitten with all forms of circular and regal headdress...the allure of the bejeweled crown, a titillating tiara, the simple swirl of a conical paper party hat....

All are fit for daily coronations, a lunch date with the gals, or any daily activity that needs sparkle.

I am seriously considering the pleasure, nay the privilege, of performing my daily chores in the "Glitterati Crown" by Ashley Carter that currently sits atop a vintage cake stand on my dining room hutch...or perhaps I might borrow this paper leaf crown that sweet Eden has donned. What a way to make the moments more fun --
and shock our already overworked UPS man!

Several glamorous gal pals have contributed to the book... congrats to all...Ashley Carter....Bodacious Glitter Bella and Countess of Sparkle Couture

Nicol Sayre...Lady of the Lovelies and Duchess of the Dollies

(here she is second from left with L to R pals Robin, Dawn and Rosanna)

Brava Bambinas! Now, go polish those tiaras!

This fabulous book is available through Earth Angels for $14.95. Twenty copies have just been delivered...Call or e-mail me at Jen@EarthAngelsToys.com to order.

Jen, "Pedal Princess" here, WOW, still shocked that I spoke to "the JEN"! How exciting! Your enthusiasm on the phone is as great as it is in words on your website. Thanks for personally taking my order! Sharon
