Dear ex-pat Suzanne in Paris sent me this exquisite Limoge miniature dolls tea set this week. I tried to paint it but...forgettabout it! Not a snowball's chance in Hell I could paint this gold set
But doesn't it look like Marie-Antoinette's daughter could have played with it?
I love this portrait of M-A at her drawing lesson - in those days you had to draw! It was de rigeur, bien sur. Portrait heads of Marie-Antoinettes hair dos... AH HA! And her famous diamond necklace. Excuse the blur...Back to the gift boutique, you could buy a version of her diamonds...They did not have anything like this gold embossed, enameled armoire (at least I think it's an armoire..please correct me) in the gift shop... Quelle domage! Now this I would have bought.
BiscuitBear bought this adorable period dress for her daughter and you can see her wearing it on Flickr. Charmant! Why didn't I get this mignon T-shirt?
