Paulettes Adventures with Chateau de Versailles

While many things are going on here at Paper Nosh this summer the most exciting news was a request from Chateau de Versailles. Can you imagine after designing multiple cards and art prints depicting my obsession with Marie Antoinette and Versailles that the officials behind the scenes at the Chateau would recognize my work for an upcoming on-line catalog they are preparing to launch.

I was contacted by the Chateau who asked if I could please send samples of my work depicting ladies and scenes from the 18th and 19th centuries that I have in my line !!! Several emails and phone calls later I realized that I had to prepare these items and have them to her in just 4 days for their commission meeting on the following Tuesday. Of course, after I fainted, hyperventilated and fainted again I began to scramble to prepare the large box of samples which went out without a moment to spare via FED EX plus a kiss and a prayer !

They contacted me again and said the commission is now in September and I will not know if my designs of cards, little booklets and prints will be included for sale in their new catalog until after that time, but just to be asked has to be the biggest thrill of my entire lifetime !!

Just think... my little designs are sitting in an office somewhere in the Chateau where maybe Marie Antoinette herself may have walked. I'll keep you posted as to any new news that I might hear as I survive the rest of the summer floating on a pink cloud above Versailles :)

You can view The Chateau de Versailles, its grounds, interiors and art work here.

This is my first time to your blog and I'm so excited for you! That is the thrill of a lifetime and I can't even imagine what getting that call must have been like. I'd have fainted too!

Claudia, (Paris Apartment) Getting the call from Versailles was a bit like getting the emails from you ! Exciting, flattering and scary all at the same time. Like an adventure novel, I can't wait to see what happens. xoxo, Paulette
