HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARIE ANTOINETTE


Earlier this month, on November 2nd, it was Marie Antoinette's birthday.
BON ANNIVERSAIRE
OR
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARIE!
I am not the least bit surprised how great you look for
being 255 years young. I can't help but think how
kind all these years have been to you.
You show up all over the place and
still manage to look so wonderful.
So many people seem to really love you.
Not only that, you have a real spunk about you.
One that could rival Lady Gaga.
I think we should celebrate
with a toast...and...
EAT CAKE IN TRUE MARIE STYLE







Marie, you've been depicted in so many ways...



Your dresses


are fabulous
frilly




and flowery



Your shoes are as unique as you!





and well, your lingerie,
....it's as ooh la la
as your hair is!!
Those hairstyles of yours



are like
nothing we've seen before
and if you were around now,
you might look something like this
There are artists that like to paint and draw you.
Here's a painting from SUSAN BROWN
or this from BROOKLIT
Here's a necklace honoring you froma pillow
a Shirt a doll
soaps from TOKYO MILK
and these candles
and funky chess looking pieces
It's all as fabulous as you.
So, Happy Birthday to you, Marie!!
I just love a good reason to...EAT CAKE!
How about you?
