Let Them Eat Cake




Although this quote apparently is misattributed to Marie Antoinette I couldn’t help myself when the theme for Sunday Postcard Art challenge this week was Baking. So I took pieces of a 1783 painting by Louise Elisabeth Vigee Le Brun and paired it with a few things from my scrapping supplies. Swapped the flowers in old Marie’s hand with a few kitchen supplies since I’m sure that did we have an upper aristocratic class today they would probably be decorating cupcakes instead of painting or needlework as their favorite pastime. Or something… I do wonder what people did before the Internet – or television. Did I just admit to having a very limited idea of being entertained?
