Fit for a King (or Queen) II … Mardi Gras Crowns 2013

 

After showing you my newest acquisitions on the front porch yesterday (crown candleholder), I thought it would be a great segue for the many crowns used in my home to celebrate the spirit of the Mardi Gras season.

The crown is a symbol of royalty, and the Mardi Gras season brings its own sense of “royalty” to our city – debutantes, stars, “regular folks”, and dogs (Think Barkus)!

The crown used on an array of items signal that the season of Mardi Gras is upon us.
