 I could not resist posting these lovely couture creations after visiting my friend Marie Arden on her blog today and then promptly going to the Vogue Versailles feature .   Oh be still my beating heart.....the dresses and displays in the Chateau de Versailles are so so beautiful.   I love and admire any type of beautiful design but these dresses fashioned after historical portraits have to be seen and appreciated by any lucky enough to view them.  Marie says there is a way to visit Versailles during the lovely that would be !!

Dangerous Liaisons the Blog for Barbara Lowe Designs: Paulette, PaperNosh and the magic of Marie!

As my guest blogger today my lovely friend Barbara {Bea} Lowe so kindly wrote this post about me on her wonderful new blog so I thought I would share it with my readers. Visit her new blog
 Dangerous Liaisons and leave a comment, it would mean the world to her !  Below is the very kind article she wrote about her !  xx, paulette
Garden of the Ancients for Marie Antoinette

It has been almost five years since I first set eyes on the exquisite work of my dear friend Paulette. I purchased some stunning cards for my friends at Christmas from her Etsy shop, Paper Nosh, and from then on I was well and truly hooked. Most of her designs are based on the life and times of Marie Antoinette, she has loved this Queen since a child and I really think she must of been a lady of the court at Versailles in a previous life. To open an order from Paulette is literally breathtaking, the packaging......oh the divine, and then the cards or invitations will never want to send them they are so scrumptious, the color palettes and the German glass still my beating heart! I have even framed some of them, they are just mini works of art! Paulette creates her wonderful designs in a pink studio we dubbed The Marie Antoinette Playhouse! Her designs are her babies and you can instantly see the love and care she puts in to each and every piece, believe me you will be instantly hooked just like me!

Paulette is a wonderful friend to me, more than a friend, a Sister of the Heart, she has helped me in so many ways, sometimes she can be a bit of nag, nag, nag....hehe.....but in the nicest possible way and really she is a fountain of wisdom and knowledge and always there for me which means so much. She nagged me to start my blog, and I am enjoying it much more than I thought I would, she designed it for me and I think it has the Paulette recognizable style! I love it! 

Here are a few of her delicious designs, more at her web site or at her Etsy shop and you must visit her delectable blog at la Pink Paperie the blog for Paper Nosh, just press the button on the right hand side of my blog. Have a wonderful weekend and take care xxx

Glittered Starfish boxes for Invitations Enclosures

My son Jason and his new bride Jenna....we're so proud to announce their wedding at Hawknest Beach in St John, Virgin Islands on July rained a bit that day but no worries...we have this wonderful blue umbrella to add to the ambiance of the photo for this joyful occasion.   I love this photo so much I made it part of the tag I had created ( originally a monogram instead of the photo), to attach to the "Pirate" themed wedding invitations boxes.  Jason wanted certain designs and I accommodated happy that he is finally married and I have a new darling daughter !!

Thought you might like to see the Villa, as well, where the family stayed !
