My newest card collection, Marie Antoinette







Recently I became very excited when I found some extraordinary pictures of Marie Antoinette. Immediately I knew what I would do with them...turn them into a card collection for obsessed fans like myself. I say obsessed in a good way. Many misconceptions continue to hang over this Queen like a rain cloud, even some 200 or more years later.

I've taken it upon myself, as did her biographers who actually delved painstakingly into researching years of French history and historical facts surrounding the queeen, to mend her reputation. Now, to my point... I made these note cards with her misconceived reputation in mind. Each card displays the untruth on the cover. Open to the inside to discover the real truth based on historical fact, not fiction. Slowly, on a very small scale and with a hint of glitter, we will begin to shed light on the true woman behind the crown. An extremely devoted mother and wife, willing to sacrifice her own happiness and life, for France.

I just love these cards... because they are easy on the eyes, and hard on the brain... I love beautiful things that make you think.
