For those who do not yet know me, I am a homeschooling mom of two, wife of one wonderful husband and a mixed media artist who loves Marie Antoinette, Alice in Wonderland, L.M. Montgomery, Mollusks, Candy Land, H.P. Lovecraft and Halloween. I also dabble in watercolor and pen and ink illustration. I spend a lot of my free time running the Marie Antoinette Mail Art site and creating art.
This year, I have decided to join in on the One World One Heart Blog event! This year's theme is a magic carpet ride! I love the Arabian Nights and the magic of the old, old stories. And, I love Marie Antoinette, who would have reveled in the rich and lush fairy tales of old Arabia...just think, during her time the Arabic nations were first coming to notice as culturally and archaeologically rich regions, newly open to exploration, yet still seen as mysterious and slightly sinister. What a perfect match for the decadent, exotic and dangerous French Court of Versailles. So, for this event, I am offering a Marie Antoinette ribbon dolly necklace. She is hand sewn with a sweet needle felted face, complete with towering pink hair and roses on a ribbon necklace.
To have a chance to win her, you need to be an active blogger. Please post a comment below on THIS POST ONLY and a means of reaching you, preferably an e-mail address, but at the very least a blog link. If I cannot reach you, I will choose a different name. Sign Ups close at 9 p.m. Eastern Standard time on February 15th. The winner's name will be announced on February 16th. I will choose the name via a random number generator. Please only post one time and be sure to check out all the other great blogs taking part in this event! You can click on the blog badge below to take you to the event's home page.
