I’m kinda obsessed with crowns. I even own a tiara. (Don’t judge.) I only wear it a few times a week. Okay, I’m just messin with you now. But I do really have a tiara. I bought it just because every girl needs one. It’s costume jewelry, but that besides the point.
I love crowns because they are beautiful and well I think everyone should have at least one.
They remind me of France, although crowns of course were worn by royals throughout history in many countries. I think it is also all of the santos I have seen wearing crowns in old French Catholic Churches that have caused me to associate the crowns with French style.
(Most of the items shown are available in my newly opened shop. If you like something click on the photo for more information.)
So I love using Santos and even just the crowns in my home to give it French charm.
The one below has movable joints at the wrist and elbow.
I know this Santos doesn’t look too happy, but at least she looks regal with her crown.
I also like having crowns sitting about on top of books,
on top f a cloche here or there,
on a tiered tray,
Or even on a little flat tray. I think they work just about any where. And who doesn’t want a crown?
