Friday Favorites–Princesses

I think it’s safe to say if you were once a little girl, you probably dreamt of being a princess at least once.  I’d even go as far as saying we don’t really stop when we become big girls.  If you don’t believe me, go check out the shoes in the boxes in my closet and tell me someone isn’t still waiting to be swept off to the ball. If you’re going to be a princess, you’re gonna need a crown.  This Dress-Up Crown from We Wilsons looks like a good choice, and I love that you could make them in a variety of prints and wear a different crown every day.

Maybe you see yourself as more of a felt crown kind of girl?  Check out this Felt Crown from Hippos and Dinosaurs.  My favorite is the brown forest-y version.


If you’re thinking, “Those are cute, but how about more SPARKLE?” this Crystal Crown from Paper, Plate and Plane might be for you.  Check out the directions – these are much easier than they look.


This Princess Hat from Sun Scholars is the style I liked when I was a kid.  The longer the stuff coming out the top of the point, the better.

Now, every princess might not be able to perform magic, but…what am I saying?  Of course they can!  A Fairy Wand like this one from Pickup Some Creativity is a must for keeping those mystic powers focused.


No one should have to stop her princessing to enjoy a cold beverage, and she doesn’t have to thanks to these Ice Princess Ice Cube Straws from ThinkGeek.


A princess has got to eat, and it doesn’t get much fancier than these Pastry Crowns with Cheesecake Mousse and Topped with Glazed Banana Bits from Hungry Happenings.  Even the name is fancy.

I’m very sorry, but there’s only one thing I can say about this Pink Vanilla Cotton Candy Cake from Sprinkle Bakes:  SQUEAL!

I am definitely not against a princess in blue jeans. In fact, I don’t think a monarch should be defined by her wardrobe. However, sometimes you just have to spin and need a twirly skirt like this Petti Tutu from Wildflowers and Whimsy.


A princess needs a buddy, a confidant and someone to carry her around the kingdom.  Enter Luna the Unicorn, a crochet pattern available from madisonscraftnook on Etsy.


I’m off to survey the lands and see what Prince Charming is up to.
