Snow Globe In PARIS

I have to admit it is a bit Kitschy, but I also have to admit I love it!!! I made my own snow globe with a sweet memory from Paris………

Paris Snow globe 013 (632x800)

See the flashing Eiffel Tower on the left. My sweet hubby wanted one when we were in Paris. He would tease that he was going to proudly display it on our mantel.

I told him, that will never happen in our house, but he could get it and we would put it on our tree this year to commemorate our beautiful trip to Paris.

He wound up not getting one while we were in Paris.

I felt kind of badly that I made him feel like he shouldn’t get it, so I sent away for one from Paris   to give him as a little Christmas surprise!

I decided it would look great under a cloche, then it evolved into a snowy scene like you would see in a snow globe.

I used two pictures, one of a snowy backdrop in front of the Eiffel tower, and one to put on the bottom where someone had written, “Kiss From PARIS!” In the snow.

I added a picture of us kissing in Paris on "Love Lock Bridge," and put two little sparkly twigs for snowy trees behind us.

How special is this snow globe for the both of you to remember Paris and a great touch with the picture of the two of you kissing. I am putting together a winter wonderland scene for the holidays and using my mother's very large old cloche. Check out my blog. I will be posting pictures soon. Great job. Humble Abode.

It's perfect - romantic, Christmassy, and brings back wonderful memories. I would make one too if I had a photo of us kissing (actually I might - I'll have to have a look) as our trip to Paris a year ago was one of our best vacations.
