Patterns at Versailles

On our recent trip to France we stopped at the Palace of Versailles.  It was breathtakingly beautiful.  I couldn't imagine living in such an ornately painted/ extraordinary space.  It would be overwhelming.  I am extremely interested in the history of Marie Antoinette, so to go to her home and see where history took place was a wonderful experience.

Must've been blue day, glad I got the memo.

Marie Antoinette's Bedroom


Ciao!

  5. Did you go to Monet's Garden? I was in France 10 years ago (whew, I feel old) and Versaille and Monet's Garden were the most beautiful!

    1. Awe no, that's the one place that we didn't get a chance to go, and I regret it. :( Next time, I did hear that it was very beautiful, it was just a little further away and then didn't fit into our schedule. I can attest that Versailles was spectacular! Thanks for commenting Emily!!! xoxox
