I've finished my first composition book and I'm pleased with the way it turned out. Actually, I had started writing in it a while ago and then decided it needed a lovely cover as I haul my sketchbooks and journals around with me jotting things down as things come to my mind-and that's quite a bit these days!

I love reading materials and can never get enough of them. I carry a stash of books and journals with a magazine or two and a half-dozen sticky notes attached to them. I am the queen of sticky notes! That's what my journals are for but I still write lots of notes. I eventually transfer the most important notes to my journals.

Today it's changed from freezing rain to snow and it's coming down steady. MM and I are tackling the project list one by one!

Inspired by the movie "Marie Antoinette" (starring Kirsten Dunst), a 14-year old Austrian who married Louis XVI and later became queen at the age of 19. The period costumes and settings are absolutely gorgeous and he story fascinating yet so tragic.

Having grown up in a family who loved the victorian era and anything elegantly antique I too carry the love of all things victorian and french.

What better than a travel dress for the sophisticated woman of royalty with compartments to hide one's most valuable treasures, toiletries or to tote a beloved pet.
