9th Pink Saturday: Marie in Pink

May 23, 2009

Ever since I came across posts where it’s about Marie and how people are inspired about her, curiosity got me. And so, when Joy of Cupids Charm held a week long celebration all about Marie, I jumped into the wagon.

It was such a fun experience for someone like me who knows very little about her. The posts delve on various topics . . . interesting topics (her life in general, treasures, beauty secrets – – – Marie Antoinette as a woman).

While learning all these facts, Joy secretly was offering a triple giveaway. She was gonna give a Marie Antoinette charm to three people and I’m one of the lucky ones. She didn’t tell or show the charm so that was a surprise.

What did I receive?





A pretty little charm where Marie sparkles in Pink! How appropriate for  Pink Saturday.

The box was wrapped in a very delicate white  wrapping paper with a Pink ribbon and Pink tag. The angel (sticker) guarding the outside of the treasure also has some Pink ribbons.

Inside the package is a pink note from Joy, her card, and a gold box housing Marie herself.

Let’s have a closer look.






“portrait charm of Marie Antoinette  collaged over a copy of 1975 Revolution inventory of her jewelry with Austrian crystal and pearl, sterling bead” – as described by Joy

How perfect, pearl is my birthstone.

And look at Marie’s choker and gown – – – it’s pink glitters!




I wanted to wear the charm as a pendant. The size is not too big.

And so, I made a necklace. Of course it has to be pink too to match 🙂

The one below is the closest shade of pink thread I could find. As you can see, if ever I want to change things up, I can use it as a bracelet and wrap on my wrist.





Thanks Joy!

(Do visit her to see her other creations. She makes lovely jewelries. In fact, she has a tutorial post on how to make your very own rose garden necklace)




Thank you too Miss Beverly.

Some has asked me on how to steam a cake from my previous post about chocolate cake balls. I do try to answer them directly to your blogs. But if ever, I’ll be updating the post and add a little description (bottom part of the post) on how I steamed the cake 🙂

    Dear Li
    Happy Pink Saturday, and what a beautiful Marie Antoinette charm. I like the way you hung it on a pink thread. You could even do a nice black thread with it.
    Thanks for welcoming me back.
    Love Claudie

    What a l♥vely Pink Saturday blog entry. This is the one day of the week when I get to sit for a couple of hours and soak in my favorite color. Thanks for being a part of that day☺

    Wishing you and yours a wonderful family weekend. I will be remembering my father who served in WWII, and praying for all of our military who are in harms’ way.

    Politeness forbids I should throw a tantrum of jealousy over that gorgeous pendant, lol. Seriously, what a brilliant gift – it looks great on you. Wear it often and enjoy it. Happy Pink Saturday!

    What a beautiful necklace. How lucky for you to win. Like you I don’t know a lot about Marie. I did see the movie that was released a couple years ago, I was in awe of the shoes, dresses and decor on the set. It was so beautiful.

    Have a happy day
