for the princess in all of us

I just loved good princess stories growing up, but I was always drawn to the ones about the poor girl in the orphanage that didn't know she was royalty, until one day the letter arrives or the kind Uncle finally finds her and tells her that she has this fortune left to her by these loving parents. There is a great book out there called "I Am Really A Princess" by Carol Sheilds.

One of my favorite lines is.. " Share a room with that girl they call your sister?...Never! your very own room is waiting. Tower-high, with a balcony,a bouncy bed soft as clouds, shelves of books,toys,paints, and puzzles, and behind the shelves, a secret passage, known only to you."

...I guess this always appealed to me because I had a twin sister and we had to share everything. And growing up with 8 kids plus 3 foster kids there was always a desire to somehow be extra special.

So for all you extra special girls out there, these fun crowns will be added to our new fall purses soon!

Jeni is going to love these. She is REALLY a princess!!
