my own Tour Eiffel

I found this wooden Eiffel Tower at the Goodwill last week. I thought it was so cute I just had to have it. I don't know what to do with it. I really don't have room for it, but I'm sure I'll find somewhere that it fits. I believe it started life as a puzzle. It is put together with tabs fitting into slots. Any ideas what I should do with it? Let me know your ideas.






Four yeas ago, I accompanied our 8th grade to France. We visited several of my friends and family. We spent a day in the school of the granddaughter of my dear friend, Mimi. We were welcomed into the homes of several families for meals. The girls were fortunate to experience French live as they wouldn't have been able to on the usual "school tour". We spent a couple of days in Paris playing "tourist". The rest of the trip was spent in the north of the country.

Oh my heart! Great find.

I am having an antique auction on my blog. All sorts of lovely and romantic finds looking for a new home. I hope you'll stop by.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I love your Eiffel tower, I'm sure you can find a place somewhere in your room, if not there are many ladies waiting to take it of your hands..

The next question is, should I paint or decorate it, or leave it as is?

Cool! Your pictures of Paris look like mine - I went in November and it was dark and gray. How fabulous that you dined in the Tower! We didn't evn get too close as there had just been bomb threats... Oh well, maybe next time!
