Brave Girls Club - a little bird told me

If you have original artwork of any songbird that you'd be willing to share, please email us a high res photo along with your name and where you're from, along with your photo (if you don't mind) and a link to your blog or website so we can feature you as our 'little birdie artist of the day'! The images that work best are those that feature a single songbird that is clearly visible from the background. The finished images we use are 180 pixels wide but, we are happy to crop and resize as needed. We are happy to report that we have received a LOT of birdie art and we LOVE IT! We encourage you to keeping sending them as these daily emails go through a lot of birdies!

THANK YOU for sharing your talents through your beautiful artwork. So we've decided to wage our own little war against those lies by sending our brave friends a daily truth. Xoxo melody and kathy.

The tragic tale of Marie Antoinette's death during the French Revolution is the stuff of legend.

But while the story of Marie Antoinette ends with her beheading in 1793, the tragedy of her family continued to unfold long after her death. Marie Antoinette and her husband, the Dauphin, were married for seven years before consummating their marriage -- much to the chagrin of Marie's family, particularly her critical mother, the Empress Maria Teresa of the Holy Roman Empire. Marie's place in the royal household of France and Franco-Austrian relations absolutely depended on her producing a male heir, even before her husband became the King of France in 1774. Despite the rocky start, Marie and Louis XVI would have four children -- only one of whom lived to adulthood. Marie Antoinette's first child was a girl, named Marie Thérèse after Marie's mother. Revolution While Marie was fulfilling her wifely duties and setting fashion trends in the court at Versailles, France was starving.
