Traveling Tuesdays

Here's a photo from the time BD—before digital.
It's part of Marie Antoinette's Petite Hameau at
Versailles. Can't you just see the young queen and her
handmaidens playing at being "rustics" here?

  1. It sounds so harmless nowadays, kings playing farmers!

  2. I can see it! I imagine the birds would have been very plump from the leftover cake crumbs.

  3. It looks like a little doll house. I could be happy there!

  4. I was always so fascinated by details of the court at Versailles, especially M.A.'s hamlet life.


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
