Top it off…

…with a crown.

The weekend was filled with crowning moments and if you are a regular reader of this blog you know my affection for crowns…read here, here, here, here, here, and here. (Even I admit, that is a lot of crowns heres.)

I doubt that any of you were living under a rock, but here are my favorite weekend crowning moments:

Prince and Princess

So sweet…

Once, Twice….Triple Crown

The website is filled with lots of bright summery accessories with reasonable prices. Haven’t made a purchase yet, but thinking about one of their tunics.

    Thanks for the tip on the website. Isn’t that pic of the prince and princess darling. I love that their “Mum” took the pic. I always took my childrens pics for cards because no one could threaten them better than me!! Enjoy your week, Beemie!! So sad I’m going to miss you this summer.
