she can be yours

Portrait of Marie Antoinette by Francois Drouet

geez, do we romanticize her or what? checking emails today i came across this auction for some of marie antoinette’s things. i’d have thought stuff like this would only be found in a museum but turns out we can buy it too. if we really wanted it…


anyway, i have about 2 secs on my friend’s laptop right now cause mine is still down from a virus i was sucker enough to download masquerading as Window’s own protection. so beware! so i’m rendered a bit out of commish at the moment, now i’m fleeting! au revoir!

October 11, 2008. Antique Shopping, art, Marie Antoinette, Museums, Paris.

  4. theparisapartment replied:

    come on amy, you know you want to look!

  5. Amy replied:

    of course you know I looked. maybe I’ll just find something similar on allposters and reframe it for a smidge less than what they’re asking for on that site. LOL
    OH! I ordered the Paris Living Rooms book you pimped the other day! Some of the rooms are delish. Others? Well….I sat there looking at them like ‘Really?’ I saw Gerard Depardieu’s living room! ::swoon:: I have a teeny crush on him. hee hee…
