Maija Lepore Marie Antoinette giveaway day

Look what I received in the mail yesterday!

Maija Lepore giveaway day
Look at the creative gift wrapping! (By the way, I will be putting the beautiful tissue paper, glittered star and pink seam binding to good use.)

Maija at Maigirlz Madness made three different pieces to commemorate Maria Antoinette's birthday and I was the lucky recipient of this one. The altered canvas has all kinds of beautiful details and tiny surprises. More can be seen here...

Thanks so much, Maija. It was such a treat receiving this.

PS. Here is a link to a Wikipedia entry on Marie Antoinette. Although the article is flawed, click on the Discussion tab at the top of the page. There are some interesting clarifications here, especially about her alleged "Let Them Eat Cake" quote. Fascinating!
