Lady Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire, painted by Thomas Gainsborough in 1787, 13 years into her highly publicized and disappointing marriage. Her life has often been compared to that of Princess Diana. Not only did both live in "love triangles" but they are both Spencer girls. This painting is on the cover of the British version of Amanda Foreman's book, which was the basis for the subsequently made film, "The Duchess" starring the superb Keyra Knightly and Ralph Fiennes.

Martenica (Мартеница) that looks just like the ones my Grandma used to crochet for us when we were kids. It's customary to wear these on your shirt or sweater until you see the first sign of spring. A pagan Bulgarian tradition that dates back thousands of years.
