it's good to be...

(oh yeah!)

you may remember that i recently won a glorious birthday crown from the lovely, gracious and uber-talented amanda, faerie queen of the carnivale in a contest on her fab blog, carnivale of fortune!

well, a box arrived last week, just as we were getting set to go to atlantic city, so i apologize that i am only posting about it now...but the crown is so very, very beautiful that i wanted to be sure to do it justice with lovely pics and a whole post all to itself!

imagine my delight in discovering that said crown--which i positively lusted for from the minute i saw it--is approximately 27,000 times COOLER in person than it even was in the photos!

imagine my surprise in discovering that the box contained not just the even-better-than-you-could-imagine crown, AND the little hidden wand accessory no queen should be without, but ALSO a little crown pin, AND a queen bee magnet, annnnnnnnnnnnd one of amanda's super-special, double-sided, totally glittery, uniquely wonderful, vintage faerie photo charms!!!!!!!
of course my pics don't come close to doing ANY of it justice, but truly these creations are breathtaking--and i cannot believe they are all mine! plus everything came beautifully packaged...with ribbons...and a pretty little fabric pouch; even amanda's business card (for her vintage faerie website) is fun & fabulous! but then i suspect that most everything to which the faerie carnivale queen turns her hand is gonna be as splendid & elegant as she! (well, it stands to reason, doesn't it?!)

apparently, i really *AM* royalty now...and i've certainly got the loot to prove it!

thank you, thank you, thank you, oh gracious queen!
