summer fête for marie antoinette
(collage above by artist Mme de Côme)
i’m supposed to be in france right now but at the last minute had a change of plans. if i’d remembered that marie’s party was in full swing i may have gone just for it. quel dommage! well, if you’re there, let us know how it was and for those of us stateside, i did a little research so we’d at least have some eye candy and cake. anyway it was a great excuse to get lost in her world for awhile.

it’s inspiring to share a marie antoinette passion with so many. surfing for pics led me to flicker where i found lilidebretagne’s photos
and she led me to this sensational artist below was featured on the same site. her name is Mme de Côme but i haven’t been able to find out any info on her. do you know her?
