Fit for a princess......


A while ago I did this ribbon project. I have been trying to come up with decor that is light in weight because I live in major earthquake territory. (Like I am sitting smack dab on top of the San Andreas fault. I think we may invest in a boat in case we really do become an island when that earth starts a shakin.)

Anyhoo...

I had to rethink the decor above the bed in the room my girls share. I took down a shadow box frame with a blessing dress in it, but I had one of my daughters names up there and didn't want to take it down because I poked....oh....six holes in the wall to put it there. So I needed to devise a plan to get my other little girls name up there as well.
The ribbon-hangy-thingy was the perfect solution, but I wasn't sure how I wanted to attach it to the wall. Last April I was in Arizona with some friends and we went to Hobby Lobby. (drool.........)
I found these crown hangers.
Crowns.....
Yippee!!!
Because every little girl is a princess!

So I finally hung them up. (does it take any one else 6 months to complete an incredibly simple project, or is that just a me thing?)

Well I love the result. Too bad my pictures are stinky. My camera is stuck in flash off mode.
In fact, I hope that Santa Clause reads my blog between now and Christmas because I am in desperate need of a new camera!

Alrighty then,...now I have to get my other little princesses name up on that wall. I think I will get chip board letters from the craft store so that when things start flying they will cause scratches in stead of cuts. :)

I will share again when the project is done,...
so maybe...
6 months?? ;)

Glad you have a sense of humor about the fact that you are definitely going to sink into the ocean when the big one hits. ;-) No, but I do think that the idea of putting lighter weight decor on the walls is smart. Would probably be smart here too....considering we are sitting right smack dab on top of the Wasatch fault. ;-)

Very pretty dear Holly, even I would love to sleep underneath such a beuatiful decor.;)
Sorry about your camera, but it makes the images very romantic.;)
Have a lovely week dear Holly,
