marie antoinette

The Cooks Mannequin Collection offers a variety of handmade miniature mannequins
for jewelry display and storage, and a perfect decor for the vanity table.
The Marie Antoinette is my favorite boasting its opulent designs and colors.

Of course you don't know it...but I'm found of M.Antoinette style! I find it so chic, so oldfashioned and so terribly modern!! Thank you for sharing these great pics! Come and visit me!
Kisses from Italy!

Opulence is a scrumptious name all on it's own. Add "Antoinette" and you've got magic!

Many girls would love this petite madame, I would have died for it at about age 12! I would have rearranged my few trinkets endlessly.

Oh my goodness! I LOVE that pink chair!!!! Such a great post and gorgeous blog!! Thanks for stopping by my blog too! :)

Pemberley said...

Love the chair and Marie Antoinette as well. Most people don;t realize she never said "Let them eat cake." that it was a smear campaign, by the Orleans family in an attempt at a power grab. She did have a charmed life while it lasted.

Jen said...

You always pick such gorgeous pictures to use!!

Happy Weekend Dear! xo

Fifi Flowers said...

Millie said...

So pretty MaryAnn - I've never wanted a dressing table, now I'm quickly revising that thought!

Dovecote Decor said...

MaryAnn: I'm stopping in with a cup of "coffee." I finally got my S-L-O-W post out, but I had to think really hard about it, and I am shamelessly proud of creating a theory in the big world, where I might stand corrected--seriously with an Austrian boot click, but, I think I sorted out a new idea. If I'm old hat, set me straight. I love my little secret garden visits to you. Keep the magic coming.
