Welcome to our Team Blog! Marie Antoinette & Edie Marie have joined together to create a fun place to share our ideas and lives with all of you. We know that our teaming up has been confusing for some of you and we apologize. We will refer to ourselves as Marie Antoinette (the Doll Creator & maker of fabulous items) who lives in Peacock Paradise and Edie Marie (the creator of the posts and story telling on this blog & amateur crafter of many things in my "attic") who lives on Golden Pond. What great fun we have combining our forces!!

Thank you for stopping by to see what's happening in our studios in Peacock Paradise and on Golden Pond!

Princesse de Lamballe's Presence Has Been Requested To Join the Queen & King For Tea

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??

    Marie et Sherry,

    Much love to you and thank you so much for visiting. Marie, your work is FABULOUS and though I am no longer making my paper products, seeing your work gives me a bit of a longing to create again; but I am SO ENJOYING what I want and need to focus on, and that is writing. We are graced with so many lovely things to occupy us in this life; it is thrilling! I hope you are BOTH WELL and many hugs and wishes for a super spring! Anita
