A Bit Of Extravagance...






I recently purchased Sofia Coppolas' 'Marie Antoinette' on DVD & since receiving it I have watched it a lot!! I am mesmerized by it, not the story (personally I thought it was lacking something & a bit dis-jointed, only my opinion mind you) but by the opulence of the decor, furnishings &, most importantly, the fashion. This is what has inspired me to make my latest minis, modelled on the fashion of the era, the extravagance of it all. I love the soft pastel colours, the roses, butterflies, frills & bows & I have even made a little gateaux with one of her delicate pink slippers on it. So, as the lady herself supposedly said..."Let them eat cake".
Have a fantastic weekend, hugs, Kerry.x
