As I make each one of these Marie Antionettes the last one I make becomes my new favorite. I just downloaded the last one in my etsy shop making for a total of ten wall hangings. My friend just told me she got her hands on the new Marie magazine by Somerset, so at least I will be savoring it soon. I am enjoying visiting the Marie Blog parties on the side bar. I will be featuring some Marie information later in the month. I have a miserable cold right now and am just enjoying reading everyone elses posts and seeing the art work featured in the magazine. I am so impressed with all the work I have seen already. It really was an ornate time during history. It was the height of glamour---nothing else has ever compared to their way of life. I ended up taking 18th century literature in college and was surprised how much I enjoyed it. I love when art correlates with life. The decorative arts at the time were a direct reflection of how life was for the rich at the time---lots of gold and glitter. Not what I am all about, but I truly admire it.
