Marie Antoinette

Here is a lovley vintage italian box I dedicated to Queen Marie, it came out so pretty! I hate painting over the antique gold patina's so this was fitting for a Marie piece. It's amazing how her lifestyle inspired so many beautiful creations. I recently saw an amazing fan created with Marie images, i'll have to find it again, just crazy beautiful. Hope all of you are getting some cooler weather, were still in a hot box here in Florida! Wish you all a lovely week ahead! Hugs, Kimberly
