Bonjour mes amis...

It's a lovely afternoon at Le Petit Trianon and Marie Antoinette is ready to receive her correspondence and learn of the latest court gossip. Her ladies in waiting gather round as the first envelope is delivered....shimmering pink glitter, sweet pink feather, gauze butterfly with gold, not to mention flower buttons and pearls. Oh la la, magnifique..fit for a Queen.
Tres charment, oui...gold filagree, pink glitter swirls, sweet German Foil paper dollies and even a cake. and vintage lace upon which a small bee sits.
These are two "altered envelopes" I have just finished for my Marie Antoinette mail art group swap. I make three and will receive three in return. I love pretty envelopes almost as much as I love "old fashioned snail" mail. It is such a treat to open the mailbox and see a lovely mini work of art all for you.
Adieu...today My {View} is filled with visions of Paris in days long gone bye.
Catherine
