Show and Tell Week, Anyone?

Well, that didn't go very well, did it?  With everyone else starting the new year full of fresh resolve and big plans, I guess I decided to go in the opposite direction.  Always the contrarian....

But I was busy over the holidays, getting the house ready for overseas guests.  So this week I'll show you pictures of what I did.  I hope you like them!

When we finished our bedroom, there was one blank wall.  It's too close to the foot of the bed for any kind of furniture.  Even hanging pictures on it could be hazardous.  But its blankness taunted me.

So one day over the holidays, I took paintbrush in hand...

Ooooh!  It's the Eiffel Tower!

Paris.  In the Spring.

Cherry Blossoms!

And us on a plane, winging our way there.

That's us in the back, packed in like sardines...

It's good to dream, no?

Oh, the little unexpected elements are always the best, aren't they! I love this idea.
