Eat your heart out Kate..................



................you may have snared your dishy Prince William
but I've already got King Robert, who made me his Queen many, many years ago!

At long last I've found the perfect crown for Bob, the great guy who not only drove me south to spend hours at two favorite antiques malls (more coming up on this trip), but also had fun, and displayed the patience of Job, while waiting as I filled my cart with treasures! Of course I'll be using this gorgeous blue-grey metal crown to decorate in the Nordic/French style I'm choosing for our Christmas here at Buckingham Palace, I mean 'the cottage'.




Forget grocery shopping..............filling a cart with antiques and vintage treasure is much more fun!


More later dear blog friends.......hope your holiday weekend was fun too.

  1. Two hours south???? That means you must have been close to me. I can't wait to hear where. Maybe one day we can arrange a meeting! Carla

  2. Bob looks cute and Don enjoyed the picture. I loved his sweet smile facing you. I think he was the best treasure you took home that day. Take care.

  3. Oh, he is a king for sure. Luckily, my husband loves to shop...perhaps more than I do! And he loves antiquing. He and your husband would make quite a pair!

  4. Isn't it wonderful having your very own king? And, such a cute one, too.

    I'm lucky enough to have a great king, too.♥

  5. Hello dear Mary ~ King Robert is certainly charming.

    Laura & I dropped by Suzanna's today hoping to say "Hello". Alas, none of my friends were there. I love the changes and your booth is filled to the brim with lovely shabby goodies!! Hope to see you next time!

  8. How fun to find a crown that just right for your king. Your trip sounds delightful. Now my husband also likes to take adventures with me and is actually disappointed if I don't invite him.

  12. He is a special one, that Bob of yours. Not only willing to take you to the places you want to go and shop, but also very kind to friends you meet along the way! Give him a hug for me. Reminds me of another Bob I know ;). They are both keepers.

    Love, Janet

  16. What would we do without our stalwart knights to whisk us from junque shop to 'really interesting place I read about on a blog'? Your King Robert looks good in a crown!

  17. Mary, I am sooo glad I got to see you at both places! Bob is a prince charming himself! You have one of the sweetest hubbies I have ever met!! Look forward to seeing you again soon! Hugs, Janna
