Welcome to my new Blog Design by my amazingly talented friend Karen Valentine of Valentine Design. I had loved my Paris themed design before but, I wanted a change of color & feel. I had loved my Marie banner last year but, I am kind of tired of Marie. And I have always loved Sisi otherwise known as Princess Elizabeth of Austria. Hubby & I had the pleasure of seeing her amazing castles when we took a cruise down the Danube River years ago. I fell in love with her at this time & have thought her my favorite ROYAL since then (except of course I loved Princess Diana which like Sisi was more popular than her husband & was viewed with much jealousy) Watch the UTube Video above & see if you don't think she's wonderful too. She was a woman before her time to be sure! I had asked Karen to use the image of Sisi, a crown, a chandelier & some other royal things (Karen found the papers used in the banner & they are actual receipts for purchasing cosmetics by Sisi. Karen found the receipt's from an auction held in 2009 where someone purchased Sisi's actual receipts - I just love the attention to detail that Karen uses) & I am thrilled with the out come. Another Blog re-do done by Karen is for my friend Pat at My Tattered Elegance. I hope you enjoy the video & let me know what you think. Royal Hugs to ALL!
