A silk purse embroidered by Marie Antoinette while imprisoned in the Temple. This too was formerly owned by Madame de Tourzel and as a nice touch, it was listed with a replica of Marie Antoinette’s final letter, sent to her sister in law Madame Élisabeth on the 16th October 1793. This purse was expected to sell for €12,000 – €15,000 but went for €97,700. by penny

This is a take on the "Orange" gift that I saw on Pinterest a few months ago. I made this for my Secret Sister. "Don't be BLUE, today's all about YOU!" In it I included a box of Mike & Ikes, Doritos Ranch, a bar of Dove chocolate, peanuts, a can of Pepsi and a box of berry blue Jello. She loved it ... by the way, I also made the "orange" gift for her. by Dakota Smith

The Vladimir Tiara, Russia, c.1890 Made for Grand Duchess Vladimir, aunt of the last Russian Tsar Nicholas II. Smuggled out of Russia during the Revolution by a British diplomat, sold in 1921 by the Grand Duchess’s daughter, Princess Nicholas of Greece, to Queen Mary, who adapted it to take 15 of the Cambridge emeralds as an alternative to the original pearls. It can also be worn "widowed" - without either.  The tiara was inherited by The Queen from her grandmother Queen Mary in 1953. by blanca
