My Marie Antoinette Favs ~ Part 1

Many of you know that I love French decor and Marie Antoinette style.  I
guess you could have guessed that from my blog design right?  (*_*)  So
today I thought that I would show you a few of my very favorite Marie
Antoinette inspired pictures that I have sprinkled around the house...

This picture above is in my hallway and it's huge!  It's takes up one entire
wall.  I purchased it from my friend Marci who used to have her whole house
done in French style.  She has since switched it around and I was fortunate
enough to be able to purchase this from her.  I love it!  It has kind of a
moody background and I just adore her dress and fabulous hat.  This lovely
picture measures 30" x 34" so it makes quite a statement on the wall.

This lovely book is a decorating item unto itself!

This is another gorgeous picture from Marci.  It was one of those items that
I made her promise to sell me if she ever wanted to get rid of it.  I'm glad
she decided to let it go...I think that this girl is so adorable!

I purchased this lovely picture off Etsy a few weeks back.  I have quite a
few of these portrait prints, but I have never seen one quite like this before
with four prints connected.  The prints are all printed on silk.  Love it!

This is a display that I have in our bedroom and you will have to forgive me,
but the lighting was not that great today so I had a hard time making my
pictures look good.  I collected these little pictures over time and I think
that most of them came from Marci...again!

I love this one...I've seen these at antique shows for as much as $400.00!

This is another favorite...probably because I picked it up at the
Salvation Army Thrift Store for $1.00.  Score!

Isn't she pretty?!

This is another favorite!  I have seen this little girl in another picture
where she is holding a white kitten.  I need to find one somewhere!

Here's another cute one.  I love the frame on this!

And yet another...I have several almost identical to this, but they are in
different frames.  I love her pretty hat with the pink roses around it!

This one is very similar to the one above, yet different.  So pretty!

I hope you have enjoyed a few of my favorite pictures.  I'll be showing
the rest of my favorites in a second post so stay tuned!

Stacy these pictures are so pretty. I can't pick a favorite, but I do love the one with the pink row of roses on her hat. I bet that it no surprise to you though.

I loved your beautiful banister all painted white!!!!
Wish we lived closer together and I would share my new wellies with you!
big hugs from here...

I now have Marie envy and need to watch the movie again for about the zillionth time Stacey ! If we close our eyes really tight and click our heels 3 times do you think we could be transported to those days of gorgeous gowns, silk hats and pretty gloves. I adore your collection, thanks for sharing it x
