Stunning presents from France by Latchkey and Jonquil!

I am simply over the moon about some beautiful gifts that Jonquil sent me from France.   They arrived today, each one in its own little box covered with illustrations :)

First is this corset, covered with tiny, perfect embroidery.  This photo cannot do justice to the work that has gone into this piece, or its true perfection from every angle.  It's also beautiful.  I love it!

 Jonquil also made me this fontage headdress -- very typical of the William and Mary period -- on its own tiny wig stand!  Gorgeous and period-perfect!

Jonquil, thank you so much for such perfect and beautiful presents, the gifts of your own hand and mind.  I am moved beyond words!

If you haven't investigated Jonquil's blog, please do visit.  She's having a very generous give away of one of her pieces of exquisite embroidery until the middle of the month!


  1. Wow, Nina! That is GORGEOUS! Lucky you! She has done the seventeenth century style perfectly! What Amazing Embroidery!!!

  2. Ohh gorgeous! How lucky you are to be receiving such wonderful presents!

  3. Wow! I'd love to have that corset in real life size! :D
