That is all I will say, because in all honesty I really don't like New Years Eve because I feel like I am going to have an anxiety attack. It is really weird, but I really like to just treat this as any other night. But for those of you who like to go all out, have a safe and happy one for me!
This is my latest Eiffel Tower creation. I am really proud of it because it is the first wall hanging I have made. I listed it in my Etsy shop and hope that it finds a happy home. I will have to make another one for myself if I do sell it, but it gives me so much satisfaction when someone loves something that I created with my own hands.
I love this image of the Eiffel Tower. I embossed it onto a page from a ledger I was lucky enough to find.
As you can see above, the ledger is from 1875. That just blows my mind. I love the hand writing from that time period. It is just so beautiful. It is like other things old that I have, I think about who once held it, what type of clothes they were wearing and the sites around them.
This ledger is huge and weighs a ton. The leather on the sides is coming off, but for something that is over 100 years old, it is in excellent shape. I am only using the pages that were coming out. I don't think I have the heart to actually rip pages out of it. I feel like I am disrespecting it in some way. Hope you enjoyed my pics!
They are calling for snow tomorrow and in all honesty, I hope that we get a ton. I want my girls to have one good snow to play in and experience this year. I love the stillness and the air after a good snow. Most of the time when snow is in the forecast, it never happens. Hard to predict the weather when you live in a valley.
Have a Happy New Year, and I hope to "see" you all in 2008! I have to go and start getting ready for Carolyn's Oscar Party!
