Post Looking Forward to Making Your Acquaintance
Bonjour!

I have become quite overcome as of late by Marie Antoinette and those surrounding her. The French Revolution as a whole has a hold on me now.

My darling husband tells me I am speaking of the Queen and all I have learned of her recently in my sleep.

Goodness I hope you all have much more to share!

Yours,
Jacqueline

Yes it can be quite "prise de tête" as the French say ("takes your head!") And once she gets a hold of you I find that our gracious majesty does not let go.... :D and one thing leads to another and one finds oneself getting interested in all things 18th century, the grace, the charm, the lightness, the insouciance, the coquetry, the paintings, the music, the architecture, Versailles, the Wallace Collection in London, Riesener, Carlin, Nattier, Grétry, Vigée le Brun, Rousseau, Jacob, Boucher, Fragonard, Mozart, Glück, Chaderlos de Laclos, Gabriel, David....and suddenly one wonders how one lived without these things before and there's not enough time to read and see all there is to read and see. :?

Baron,

I could not agree more emphatically! I checked some books out of the library today and frowned; there simply is NOT enough time in the day. My poor husband thinks his outgoing wife is becoming an introvert. My children are tugging at my clothes while I educate myself!

I am convinced my true happiness is in the gardens like those of Petit Trianon.

I am very excited to be embarking on this new journey. If nothing else, I will become more well read then I could have imagined.

Thank you for your thoughts,
Jacqueline

Indeed Jacqueline, once Marie Antoinette takes a hold of your imagination, she never lets go! Enjoy your time here learning more about our gracious queen. :D

Welcome, Jacqueline. I fear that I share the symptoms of your Antoinette-itis! :D
