Not another Eiffel Tower....

I had been looking for another paperweight to add to my other 2, and couldn't resist one I found in Bed Bath 'N Table today. Naturally, it's an Eiffel Tower!



My other 2 bird paperweights:



Love them! Although tricky to photograph being a dome of glass which reflects the flash no matter what angle.




So......how much is too much? When does a collection become an obsession?



Not to forget my wrapping paper picture in the hall:




There's a bit of a joke in the family, that new guests have to find the room that doesn't have an Eiffel Tower in it...not hard to do, as most are grouped together in the family room (although not like the table for the photo!). Also surprising to note that approximately 30% has been given to me! Perhaps my family suspected my obsession before I even had one! Hehe...

My Daughter is well on her way to catching up with me too...sad huh? ;-)

I read this post the other day and walked past Bed Bath N Table this afternoon and saw a quilt cover set with the eiffel tower printed on it...made me smile...maybe suitable for a guest room? Just thinking of ways for you to own just one more haha :o)

Hi Cal, I know the one! It's blue and red on a white background. I have thought many times about it, but settled for the matching tea towel instead! ;-)

Oh I love your little paper weights. Gorgeous and timeless. Nothing wrong with loving France and 'the tower'... your bits and pieces are just lovely. A-M xx

Hi there ! I saw your blog today and instantly fell in love with it. Lately I've been looking around for a Paris quilt cover to complete my room (with a Paris theme). I wanted a black and white one with the Eiffel tower printed on it so if you have seen one or find one I would love it if you could let me know :)
By the way, too much is never enough !

Hi Elizabeth, thank you for your lovely comments! Both Target and Bed Bath 'N Table have had Eiffel Tower quilt covers in the past (before Christmas), but I have no idea what is available now. From memory, the one at Target may have been black and whte with a touch of red?
