I'll admit it -- I'm somewhat infatuated with Paris. The city. Not Hilton.
Although it's very likely my going there is not ever going to happen,
I would love to see Paris in the Spring.
Yep, that old cliche.
In any event, the next best thing I find is French design and cuisine.
No, I'm not acting out Julie & Julia in my kitchen on a regular basis, nor am I purchasing vintage French aprons or bake ware on ebay -- I have neither the financial means nor the attention span really to do either.
At this moment in time, I just like French stuff.
So when I spied the Eiffel Tower paper weight at the thrift store, I knew it was an easy way to capture the Esprit Français I was totally looking for.
For $1.00 U.S. Plus tax.
So even if I can't physically fly to France and see the Eiffel Tower, I can at least hold a reasonable facsimile in my hand and imagine, sort of, what it would be like. To go there.
Paris is prolly over-rated anyways.

PS: Apparently, no Texture Tuesday today per Kim Klassen's website -- I must have misread something. Just thought I'd save you a trip.
Also, my computer kept crashing last night and I gave up trying to visit y'all around 6 p.m. and shut 'er down. Old Bessie seems to be working much better this morning. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Hope your Tuesday is a good one.
