Vintage glitter - What more does a princess need?

Try as I might, I have not been able to steer my daughter entirely clear of the princess phase. It is something that just happens. Sure, she’s into dump trucks and knows the difference between a bulldozer and a backhoe, but that’s nothing compared to her ability to reenact the most recent British royal wedding. Word for word.

And what princess ensemble (or art project) is complete without a little glitter? Which is why my eyes popped when I saw this post on Krrb.

Alas, I live nowhere near Henrico, Virginia, and as such will not be getting my hands on this particular treasure. But I know there are tons of princesses and parents of princesses out there in Krrbland, and at least one of you must live near enough to Ashley L and her corner on Krrb to take advantage of this offer-of-a-lifetime.

I mean, who knows? Maybe monarchies are making a comeback. Best to be prepared!

  • Ah yes, those were the good old days when you could put children to work polishing your various shiny objects without having to worry about child labor laws. These days, you’d get in trouble for that sort of thing. Hence the appeal of a tarnish-prof glitter, I’m thinking. ;-)

    I’m intrigued by the claim of being “tarnish-proof.” I picture Oliver Twist-era orphans resolutely polishing the glitter on baubles for some well-off middle class businessman’s home.
