So, funny story, well, frustrating really, the reason I have extra pictures of this canopy is because I tried to do my own photo shoot of it out in the forest…Well, once again, a painful reminder that I am not a professional photographer! I love photography-I think I have an “eye”-but I am definitely technically challenged! After realizing that I had not taken into account the weather-the wind was blowing so much that the ideal spot just didn’t work, and another gorgeous spot had snow dripping all over the place and would have soaked the canopy and ruined the picture. Seriously, I lost a pair of scissors, because of that couldn’t cut my twine the way I wanted-so it was wrapped up all over the place, and generally was pretty frustrated.  But, I finally found a “good enough” spot and was lucky to get a few good pics of it at least. See what you think! And here is a little more information on the canopy itself:

This canopy is definitely fit for a little princess! I worked with mom to create the perfect castle canopy for her little sweetie. Lauren’s first initial is hand embroidered in pink silk ribbon on the front center of the castle. Lauren loves butterflies so I put butterflies here and there all over the canopy-and even through the tulle front panel that was made to hang over her full sized bed.

The castle has scroll designs along each panel-a beautiful pearly white cording brings out these scroll designs perfectly. Jewels are also positioned throughout the canopy’s castle to add even more girliness to it!

The 4 panels can be tied back with a gorgeous chevron pink and white ribbon, or the front two tied, or all left untied to totally enclose the castle-depending on the princess’s whim of the moment. One of the panels has a secret pocket on the inside for Mommy or Daddy to leave a special note to their little princess-or maybe for Lauren to put in a special small book or stuffed animal.
