What a lovely spring day this is in Versailles.
The palace is all abuzz with
Ladies In Waiting dawning their new
spring frocks in lovely pastel shades,
fluttering about the great halls and venturing
outside to breathe the fresh spring air.
The rustle of taffeta, silk and light puffy voile
is so refreshing after
the dismal winter months.
The gentlemen in the palace are enjoying
this fresh display of lightheartedness!
I have other other plans for this day.
You see today I have been requested
to join my royal friends,
Queen Marie & King Louie,
to enjoy tea with them,visit with them,
and spend the entire day with them!
I love my dear friend, the Queen, and I just
know that after tea the King will retire from
our presence and we will join our other
dear friends Princesse de Elisabeth,
Princesse de Conti, the Duchesse de Chartres.
and several others.
We will laugh and gossip and try on
the new hats the Queen has ordered from Paris.
My heart is all a flutter - I'm so excited!
Mlle Bertin creates such luscious hats,
you could say they are "fit for a queen"!
Oh you can't imagine the fun we have
in the Queen's Royal Chambers!!
My gown was created by Mlle Bertin
and my beautiful Queen has gifted
me this delicious hat that she had
made as a surprise to match my gown.
How sweet my Marie is to do such
a special thing like this.
In her Royal Chambers the queen
whispered in my ear that she was troubled
and needed cheering up. She wanted to have her
friends close to her today.
The she told me in confidence that she had
a troubling dream last night. It was about
Mlle Bertin, putting ribbons on a garment
she was making for her and the beautiful
colored ribbons all turned black.
Somehow it saddened me.
What do you suppose it means??
