i love paris in the springtime

well, I think I would anyway. I haven't been yet, so I can't say for sure.

BUT my little sis Jemimah and my Mother are there today and I am thinking of them, and how much fun they must be having together - the 2 peas in a pod that they are- and how I am only winsy bit jealous. But not really, because what I really am, is extremely grateful for this time they have together and that my sweet mother- who never does much for herself at all, but is always doing for others- got to go on this amazing adventure! I cannot wait to read her blog updates all about it!

To celebrate their grand Paris adventure I created a whimsical 2 tiered Eiffel Tower Mobile.

This is a play on an idea I have had for a year, since my trip to Juneau last Spring, when I created something similar for baby Ellis' nursery...

It was great to get this out of my head and into my hands, and I had fun making it while thinking of all the wonderful experiences Mom and Jemimah are sure to be having!!
They were the perfect inspiration!


  1. I never did get you a photo of Ellis' mobile, did I? Yeah, I suck :) I actually need to re-hang it because too-tall Adam kept bumping his head on it, so I took it down to re-hang, and then it got crooked, and then...well, you know how days turn into weeks turn into months...

    Speaking of sucking, I got Heather Armstrong's book today ~ Hearthside actually had a copy! If you can hold out on buying a copy for yourself, I was going to get you one at her book signing. I had meant to surprise you, but just realized you may buy a copy on your own. :)

    hugs ~

  2. Love your mobile! Actually better than anything I saw in the real Paris. No kidding! Love you
