I sent in my questionnaire last night. I have tons of pics from Versailles, where I visited last fall, and they will be perfect for this swap. So anybody who'd love some photographic wall art would be perfect partner for me!

I'm finding so much inspiring stuff! MA really has a great inspirational aura. I guess I have to watch the movie again (OK, I know people don't really like it, but I love the new wave and post punk scene in general and combining it with Maria Antoinette seems to be a genious act to me, I know it's not really a historically true movie, but I love the art Wink).
Just check these:
