In case you missed it, here’s what was on the blog this week.
- Monday: Danielle Brooks won me over with her hair jewelry and pants at the Screen Actors Guild awards.
- Tuesday: Every Tuesday is a Resist Trump Tuesday and the truth about Mexican immigration is that everything Trump has said about it is a lie.
- Wednesday: Purrkoy the kitten will teach you some sex-ay poses for Valentine’s Day.
- Thursday: The Jewels of the Month are my amethyst birthstone studs and my Madame Royale necklace.
I wasn’t planning to write about the Madame Royale necklace in Thursday’s post, but writing about the amethyst birthstone earrings led me to my amethyst Marie Antoinette designs. Those, in turn, led me to the necklace inspired by Marie Antoinette’s daughter, Marie-Thérèse-Charlotte, who was known as Madame Royale.
Considering Madame Royale was the only member of the immediate royal family to survive the French Revolution, there hasn’t been that much written about her. I already mentioned the nonfiction Marie-Thérèse, Child of Terror by Susan Nagel. I also have the historical novel Madame Royale by Elena Maria Vidal. But I can’t find a single “Secret Diary” novel about Madame Royale! What royal figure hasn’t had a “Secret Diary” novel written on his or her behalf? I might have to put this on my list of things to do: Write Madame Royale’s “Secret Diary” novel.
Over on Instagram, I gave a sneak peak of a pair of ruby micro studs. They look good with the amethyst studs, no?
Purple and red was a favorite color combination of mine in high school. I used to wear a red Lacoste shirt under a purple sweatshirt. True story!
