What I Love: French History

A new Friday Ritual: I have a personal goal to photograph 101 Things I Love.

Yep, here’s my inner nerd.  I love history.  It started back in high school with French History, morphed to American History, added in ancient Greek and Roman history, and lately it’s been WWII history (helps to have a 10-year-old son who wants to know all things WWII).

So, here’s a little homage to French Revolutionary history:

Marie Antoinette’s garden at prison – her window is the third square.

Site of the Guillotine

Napoleon’s reliief on the Arc de Triomphe

So, how does French history relate to craftiness?  I have a wee project that needs some finishing (surprise), and then it will become a little more obvious how history plays out in my work.

Until then…..typing out loud – wouldn’t it be fascinating to research the history of crafts?


About lionsdaughter

I like to make things, lots of things, but not all things. I love to sew, knit, embroider, take pictures, scrapbook, dye fibers, work clay in the summer, garden. I want to try weaving, spinning, and stain glass work. I have no interest in auto body, upholstery, or tanning (either working animal skin or purposefully darkening my own).
