I do hope you get the chance to visit sometime, Elena, and of course you must not forget to have tea.
The diminutive theatre sounds delightful - a real treat for any visitor especially a child or those who are children at heart.

Yes, I wish I could go soon! When I was last there in 1999, the house itself was closed.

It looks charming--a refreshing respite from the opulent formality of Versailles.

Yes. Pictured is Marie-Antoinette's bedroom at Petit Trianon. The photo makes it look larger than it actually is.

How so very simple, not fussy at all. And so tasteful.

Yes, the queen's taste was exquisite; she loved the simplicity of white.

I like the white as well - very soothing. I can't wait to take the children. I just need to get the passports renewed! So expensive these days.
