P A R I S in Printer's Blocks
I love it when I see pictures of old printer's blocks on display in someones room. I am happy to say I found one of the Eiffel Tower a few years ago. How wonderful for my collection! I always thought it would be cool to have "Paris" spelled out. I know you find that odd, coming from me, hahaha. I am happy to say I have purchased my last two letters now from ebay and can't wait to put them all together. Above are the letters I found. I placed them all out on Visio to see how it would look. I then thought about maybe using my Eiffel Tower as the "I" but will wait and see. If not as the "I" then set up with the letters for sure. I'll let you see what I come up with.
I hope you are all having a great summer. I've been super busy with the kids home but have been making some great art both Marie related and some from my "darker" side. I've also found some great vintage French goodies like a fabric swatch book from the early 1900s and some old menu cards and buttons. I will share those soon. Until then, have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
