Lace and a Crown

I added this Crown over a little bunch of white roses and clipped on a cute pearl thingy to the crown....
I also added an very old lace curtain panel I bought at the thrift store a while back....to cover the chest (just for another look) ....I love this old chest....it belonged to my Vovo (grandmother) it was given to her from her mom (my great-grandmother) when she got married....

my Vovo died at the age of 93 years young...she was an amazing lady......
every time I look at this old chest I always think of my Vovo....
and that is everyday.....

I love the look at night.....you can see the before picture in the post below.....
just a little change I thought I would share with you....
Hugs,
Mo :-)

I love the transformation. And the crown. Yes another thing I would absolutely have to have if I saw it in a shop somewhere :)
But the thing that I love the most is your connection to your grandmother. I may not have ever had that, but I so relish when I hear someone else speak of it. It makes my heart sing every time....
Thank you Mo for the way you touch all our worlds....

Very pretty, Mo. I've seen those crowns in stores, but didn't know how to display them. Yours is really nice.
Your grandma lived a long life, didn't she? She would love that you are still using her chest, I bet.
