Eiffel Tower Tower


On Christmas Eve, my Davis erected a tower that I think Monsieur Eiffel would love.  He took most of my ET collection and made his own.  The header photograph is another creation that he and sister Eva devised.  "Mumsie, the towers in descending order." Parfait!

Yesterday, my blog friend in Paris, Karin Bates Prescott, sent me a message that Living France Magazine had given me a nice review in their December issue here on page 55. What a thrill!

Now that Santa has come and gone, I finally have half a mo to stop by and say that I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, V. And maybe young Davis would like to come over here and rearrange my ET collection—I just love what he's done with yours!

Congratulations, Madame. I´m so happy for you! You deserve it!

A few months ago I discovered a nice blog called "importanttomadeleine"

Madeleine was born in Nice a few years ago. She has a degree in French History and her father was a Senator for Texas. If you love History her posts will enchant you!

I can imagine how charming your grandchildren must be!

Very cute post. Thank you so much!

Happy New Year.

What a wonderful Christmas gift to you, Virginia, in appreciation of your love of Paris. I like your candles and Towers replacing the Champs Elysee for your opener. Your son is quite talented! I have read Living France every chance I could...Happy New Year!
