It's Marie's Birthday, Let's PARTY!

Happy B-day to a BFF of Georgie's, the Archduchess of Fabulous, Marie Antoinette. To celebrate, Joy over at Cupid's Charm is holding a Birthday Soiree, and everyone is invited! She asked us to post an item we have made or purchased, inspired by Marie. God knows, I have made many purchases in the sacred name of Marie Antoinette, but I thought I would post these shoes I whipped together for my Halloween costume this year. They are nothing spectacular but you get the picture!


So join the celebration and check out the soiree at Cupid's Charm today!

  2. Passion + scholarship = That which makes life worth living.

    May the spirit of Madame Antoinette rise from your feet and possess you today.

  3. Thanks for sharing your gor-geous shoes. I hope they made it through Halloween unscathed! And thanks for participating, or I never would have gone to party and seen so many creative and beautiful things to want. To celebrate, I got out my miniature sedan chair (which is generally kept out of harm's way. By harm, read cats and dogs) and put a small tobacco card of G inside. A girl has to travel in style, after all. Maybe one day I'll get tech savvy and figure out how to post a pic of it. (And Learned Pigs will fly!)
    Hope you had a fab Halloween.

  17. Haha! How tart-ly of me! Unfortunately with the absence of my laptop I can't upload any photos. But I can tell you that I wore a black riding habit trimmed with Devonshire Brown ribbons, and of course, my picture hat!
