Happy Birthday Marie Antoniette. I have been collecting these "Marie" inspired pictures for the past year or so. I feel fortunate to live near several retirement communties. Not only do I love meeting these kind, fun-loving retirees, but I have the opportunity to attend estate sales almost every week. I try to stop in on Saturdays after our soccer games, which coincidentally just happens to be half-priced day.
Look at the French paper-lined backing on this frame with the name "Mary" hand-written on it. I wonder if someone brought this to Mary from their trip abroad. Attending estate sales always has me wondering about the treasures I find.
Cupids Charm is hosting a Marie "Soiree" today. Go take a peek. You will be amazed.

I checked out this book from the library a few weeks ago. I hope I get a chance to relax and steal some time to read it.

Hey, those are pretty cool! I remember visiting my mom's elderly friends and seeing pics like these on their walls. As a kid I seriously thought these were their relatives. Who knows... maybe they were. lol

I don't want to taint you or reduce the enjoyment of your library book, but that was the least fave of all the books on MA that I read in the past two years... maybe if you read it with "a grain of salt" you will enjoy it.

Your displays are wonderful!

Hi! Have you seen the Marie movie that Kirsten Dunst is in? Just saw it at the video store and thought of you...wondered if you saw that one. How is every one? How was Taylor's bday?
