During the spring Joy of Cupids Charm contacted me about translating an old document listing some of Marie Antoinette's jewelry from French into English. I enjoyed the work - it was more pleasure than anything else. In return, she sent me the beautifully worked necklace I'm wearing, with the Chateau de Versailles in the background.
Here's a close up of the necklace - each charm features a different portrait of Marie Antoinette. Today, Joy has posted some of my photos on HER blog - go take a look, and check out her beautiful work.

Love the necklace & how nice of you to translate for Joy. I know she was pea green with envy. And I am sure you had a wonderful trip. Lucky Girl! I hope to go next year to visit friends that live in the south of France.ReplyDelete

What a treat~I too adored Versailles.ReplyDelete
Lorrie, I have really enjoyed going back and reading your posts about your trip. You took some beautiful photos, and as always I so enjoyed reading about the history in those places. It looks like it was such a blessed time with your mom and sister. I am trying to make the rounds of all my favorite blogs... after a long break, I am returning to my blog Cottage. Three art shows and one high school graduation behind me, I hope to have the time I'd like, now, to catch up.ReplyDelete
