Year of Tour Eiffel

Winter. Snow. Eiffel Tower. Sounds magical right?

Ever experience the Eiffel in Winter? Nope…neither have we.  If you said yes, then you’re a lucky one!

We’ve seen her in Autumn when the days gradually grow shorter and gold leaves tumble in the breezes beneath her.   In early Spring when she towers ever so slightly under a blanket of grey & rain.  And finally in Summer when tourists swarm her like cut ants on a rose bush.  Not the most idyllic of images, but that’s the poor gal in the Summer.

  I image she’s even more majestic clouded by a haze of glittering snow…maybe this will be the year of Tour Eiffel in Winter.

For now I dream…

Or instead of dreaming I can layer up in a coat, scarf and mittens, walk out the front door and gaze upon her myself! Yes, there admist the bustling traffic of Rockland, Maine is the *Snow* Iron Lady herself…

Made especially pour moi by the uber talented Chef!

I know, I know…it kinda resembles a pizza oven (our friend’s first thought) or maybe a missile?  Another guess we heard.  You wouldn’t believe the gazes, gawks and stares of bewilderment we received while construction was taking place.  Our neighbor, who also got a little artistic (her creation–Year of the Fish) not far away, was puzzled and a little unsure it would even take shape.  She made sure the pedestrians passing by weren’t confused by its phallic like shape.  She just didn’t want the police to show up…it did take a on rather profane image for a while.  Alas…”Don’t mess with Texas..we’ll get er’ done” thought the Chef.  And so he did!

    • I just adore your blog too! Especially the Eiffel Tower Tuesdays. I hope you don’t mind..I borrowed your “Iron Lady as Snow White” and of course linked back to your blog.
      Are you in Paris at the moment? We’ll be there in March.
