I'm not particularly sure, I wouldn't be surprised if most people spoke a little Italian, English, Latin or German.

i lost count of the numbers, but...

you have a tatoo of her monogram at age thirteen.
you own the "petit Trianon" porcelain collection
your bedroom is decorated eaxctly like that of her petit bedchamber at versailles
you just added the cabinet dore to the garden side of your house
you have the floor plan of petit trianon framed and haning on your wall
your aunt made you an ornament out of her replica pearls
youre having an amish man make you the furniture suite of her buodoir at saint-cloud
youre building her petite bibliotheques with your bare hands at age 15.
:D

i too cried, when i saw the guillotine picture. i burst out screaming in fits when people ask "who is that?"
my history teacher now knows who i am and what the royal family means to me, so i get to teach on the days of discussion :}

I think I'd rather have a fleur de lis tattoo.

yes, a nice symbol. however i believe her monogram to be directly connected to her, whilst the fleur connects to the monarchy itself.

We share the same initials, so of course I recreated her famous monogram I found on this plate and embroidered it on my bathroom towels.

You know you're obsessed with MA when...
1. You catch yourself saying "That is so du Barry" at anything you don't like.
2. You base your textiles project for Art GCSE on her dresses
3. You hear people treating her as a spendaholic who didn't care about her people
4. You cry to yourself at her own sufferings.
5. You want to learn French just for the sake of it.

The one and only fact I KNOW I love her...

1. When you've seriousely considered the fact that you may be the actual reincarnation of Marie Antoinette!

Or when you think you're someone from her inner circle :D

Yes I did do the embroidery myself. I digitized the monogram with embroidery software then stitched it out on my embroidery machine. I am completely obsessed with her monogram and plan to do more!! She had such an eye for beauty I just want to enjoy peices for my home. I am also doing a set of silk pillows!!

lol, it looks amazing! i think, if im understanding you correctly, you have an embroidery machine which hooks up to your computer?
thats amazing, my grandmother has one but it is just a sewing machine which does different stitches. Also, just an idea, you might be able to make some $$$ of the ol' comte here. If you would be interested, id love for you to monogram something for me! Just a thought!
