The Hameau de la Reine
This dainty little bag was inspired by what awaited me on the grounds of Versailles during a visit a couple of years ago.

My favorite part of Versailles located in the back of the English gardens as idyllic country France at it’s finest.
The Hamlet is a village built to resemble an arcadian 18th-century scene and a "return to nature" the miniature hamlet, amid the abundant charm; it represented an almost childlike vision of a simpler, happier world which is truly FIORI !
Straight out of a fairytale, this area was the rustic retreat of Marie Antoinette, where she would go to escape the burdens of courtly life and play peasant with her ladies. 

Hand crafted from with rustic steel this vintage French Miniature bird cage reminiscent of the Queens Hamlet . With a removable cotton lining that resembles the fabric Marie Antoniette would wear during her stay in her country cottage.
With hand painted French Roses from her English Garden , .. (that I secretly picked that day) .... and embellished with a Royal bird.
