I have always been interested in history and especially stand alone fascinating characters from the past such as Marie Antoinette. Of course I had read and taught about her at school and been attracted to everything 'Marie' and had occasionally bought paintings and 'things' relating to her but it wasn't until I met my dearest friend Paulette of PaperNosh and saw her divine work based mostly on Marie and that period in history that I started looking out for objects which I thought Paulette would love. I have found some very pretty things and sent them to her in the US where she lives, so I was really pleased when I was at work on Thursday that I came across the yellow Marie figure, it had no markes except for numbers and she is in fact some sort of container. I packed her well to bring her home but when I took her out of her wrapping her head had been decapitated!!! It gave a new meaning to 'Off with her head' lol, anyway I don't think Paulette will mind the glued head of Marie! She loves things a little shabby chic which is just as well. If you have not see the stunning work Paulette does please go and have a look at her beautiful blog, you can reach it by pressing the PaperNosh button on the right hand side. I have taken a few Marie related photos so here they are.
