More romantic notions....




I think, without actually counting, I have watched Sophia Coppola's film, Marie Antoinette a few times, perhaps three, maybe four!
The romantic and tragic poignancy of Coppola's depiction of this legendary heroine keeps me going back for more.  I think it is my love of detail, that I devour every bit of it here, which she does not spare in any way in her film....






This precious little figurine, beckoned me to take it home, from the thrift store..
I am not supposed to be doing that, I'm editing...






The need to get going on a few mock ups for events this Spring, in the midst of packing boxes and editing??? I made a few items for contemplation....
these will be presented for approval or tweeking...




I have been attempting to recreate vintage boite livres a l'ancienne, book boxes,
cache pots, tresor keepers... for a bit now....
a sample I made this week....






....not so perfect stitches....




...a bit French, a bit primitive, a bit Victorian.....






The shoes in the movie, were made by Manalo Blahnik and Pompei,
and the exquisite costumes by Milena Canonero, who won the Oscar for Costume Design as you may remember...

My attempt at making a centerpiece design for an upcoming ladies event, I cannot mention right now, it is still in the works, but promise to share at a later time....








....moss, sneaking in there again....and birds....






Hope you enjoyed me sharing some work related brain storming this morning...
The sun is shining today, and the sky is that beautiful French blue...

Nature gets it right every time...

....very romantic....
