Awhile back I did this post Pink Thrifting and told you that I would be doing a stamping project on those pretty little pink cocktail napkins .
Ta da!!! I got them done and I think they turned out pretty cute!!!
You can't get much more French than the bee, which is one of the emblems of Napoleon's court.
Symbol of immortality and resurrection, the bee was chosen so as to link the new dynasty to the very origins of France. Golden bees (in fact, cicadas) were discovered in 1653 in Tournai in the tomb of Childeric I, founder in 457 of the Merovingian dynasty and father of Clovis. They were considered as the oldest emblem of the sovereigns of France.
I love, love, love this stamp set by Darcie's. This company doesn't even know I exist. Last year when I was making my little heart pillows out of eyelet and muslin I used this set...it is just so sweet! I use the "You and Me...meant to Bee" for little tags to price things for the shop.
