Marie Antoinette - I'm serious - who knew??

I have recently become as enamoured as a lot of you have with Marie Antoinette.
In fact, I even joined this fabulous mail art group that I LOVE where I get to create Marie art; as much as I can handle! (If you want to know more about that, email me:)
So, when I stumbled across this blog called Cupid's Charm and saw this *amazing* banner I couldn't help myself - you simply must go to Joy's (we're BFF's now that I've come to love her through this series she did. I'm sure she'd agree.) blog and read her week long posts on Marie. There are facts that you're going to want to know.
After you visit Cupid's Charm you'll see what I mean.
This woman (Joy, my BFF) put hours and hours into researching Marie Antoinette's life and it's simply fascinating. Oh, and the pictures. Simply amazing.
After the blessing I received enjoying Joy's posts, I know what I'm going to do this weekend.......I'm going to rent the movie, Marie Antoinette! I can't wait to see the fashions and furnishings up close and personal.
( I'm kinda thinkin' that Mare and I would have been best friends if I lived during the 1700's.)
Y'all have a blessed Easter. Remember Christ's resurrection and celebrate our risen Lord!
Blessings to you all and especially to my readers. I simply adore you!

I really enjoyed Joy's posts too. She was so thorough, it was almost like the PBS special on Marie Antoinette! I think a lot of us are attracted to Marie and knowing the history is fascinating. What a strong woman she was. Have a lovely Easter weekend, glad I happened upon your blog.
