Things are getting exciting for my Marie Antoinette room box. It is nearing completion.. That is saying a lot for me. I don't have too many finished projects of my own. I always feel guilty when working on personal mini projects.
This weekend I received news that my Marie doll is done and I should be getting her this week. Yippeeee!! I also got a wonderful gift in the mail. Dominique of http://minicurioscabinet.blogspot.com/ sent me two tiny and perfect pairs of shoes for Marie. Maybe i made a fool of myself gushing over them on here blog. heheh!! They are so very pretty.. I noticed she is selling shoes on etsy too: http://www.etsy.com/shop/humptydumptyhouse?ref=pr_shop_more
This is a dressed chase that I had decorated some time ago. It was a pretty cheep chair that I had redressed. I think she did a wonderful job. I have temporarily laid Marie's corsets, fans, and a masquerade mask on top. I am praying Marie will fit on the chair. If not I will have to find another chair and then I probably won't have room for this pretty chair in the room.
you can see the transformation here: http://bedsbykelly.com/customwork.html. Kelly does wonderful work.
These are the shape of the champagne glasses they use in the movie. One myth that floats around is that these glasses were shaped the same as Marie Marionette's breasts. You can read the links below to find out why that is NOT true.
I took a photo of my little BJD Griet with some of Marie's food. You can see a few of Todd Kruegers little Saplings too.
Many artists work in this photo.. Kathy Oberenski, Lary Tonetti, Jakie Dunn, English Kitchen.
I had planned on making a sweet spread like this one. But with all the other cakes I have I don't think there will be room.. Well see how it goes when I actually start putting to room together.
I might try to make some gold leafed macaroons for her if I can find some space in the food spread.
I promise to get back to blogging about some of my creations this week. I have a lot of new things to show..
