Marie, Marie, Marie ~

Marie Antoinette that is! I was asked to join the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group. There are so many talented artists in this group, and amazing swaps to join my head is spinning! Art dolls, paper theaters, an altered shoe, supplies, ATC's, and more ~ how fun! I don't know where to start...

Marie Antoinette Award

My sweet friend Melissa from the lovely blog Adored Before gave me this award! When I asked her why, she said, "just because!"So very sweet of her. If you have stopped by my blog and are reading this, then I bestow this award to you too! Please post it on your blog and pass it on to your friends.

This weekend we saw The Dutchess. The costumes, scenery, and her hair made me swoon! What an amazing woman of character, but such a tragic love story. I loved that Keira Knightly told the movie studio that absolutely no enhancements of her body were to be made in the publicity prints ~ she rocks! So grateful to live in a time when women have a voice and are respected. It would be fun if only for a day to wear one of those grand gowns though, even with all the barbaric under contraptions {obviously designed by a man!}

what i should have said was ~ so glad that we live in a time where many women are respected and valued. we surely do have a long way to go, but how very different that now there is a voice for those who are not.
