Dangerous Liaison

Today is my friend, Barbara's birthday and thought to feature her new line of lovely lace creations at her new Etsy store, Dangerous Liaison.

Some of you may remember Barbara Lowe from an earlier feature I did for her shop The Queen's Royal Rocks, where she sells her fabulous jewelry creations.

This new line of baroque lace and jewels with the gorgeous French flair is a bit avante guarde, a lot sexy, and presents a style beyond compare.

Take a peek at her shop and order up as each piece is an original and no one will have again the exact same design as you are wearing. Think of the compliments !!

Happy Birthday my dear "Sister of the Heart" !! I wish I could fly across the pond and bake you a cake and drink pink martini's with you to celebrate.

The French Coach Couple and Louie XIV

While doing research on Versailles I came across the famous Jeff Koons. He created both of these beautiful stainless steel statues in 1986 and I know my readers will love the new Renaissance of these two pieces with all of the interest in Marie Antoinette and Versailles.

The French Coach couple at right is 17 x 15 1/2 x 11 3/4 inches and was made only with Editions of 3.

The handsome King Louie XIV, below right, is also in stainless steel and hopefully still displayed at Versailles. It measures 46 x 27 x 15 inches and must be absolutely stunning in person. There were 3 Editions of the piece also.

Jeff Koons also has a wonderful book published on Versailles. It says of the book, "the splendid extravagance of the palace of Versailles as a backdrop for the gregarious, loud and equally extravagant sculptures of contemporary American Pop artist Jeff Koons, who mounted the first contemporary art exhibition ever in the apartments of the king in September 2008."

I have the book on order and am extremely excited to review it for myself.

We are hopefully planning a visit to Versailles in the coming year, just the girls on an excursion to remember !

Paris, here we come !!

I have a secret to reveal about Versailles myself and may be able to tell in the next few weeks !
