My ornament tradition & Happy New Year!

 It has become a little tradition of mine to buy myself an ornament AFTER Christmas at Kohl's.  They always have an Eiffel Tower ornament and after Christmas, they are on sale at a really good price.  Yesterday I made the trip and crossed my fingers that there were still some ornaments left.  I had no idea what this years ornament would look like, but I loved it the second I laid eyes on it!
 I wanted to make my own ornament just like this, but Kohl's has done all the work for me!  A sparkly Eiffel Tower sits on a circle of script that sits on a medallion of glitter.  The Eiffel Tower is encased in a delicate glass cloche and a sheer white ribbon is attached to the top for hanging.  It is simple and perfect!
 I must admit, I bought all they had.  There were 3 left and at just a little over $2 each, I had to buy all of them!  Even though the script inside the cloche has holiday sentiments, it will be perfect to leave out all year round.  This one is in my Paris bathroom.  The other two will sit in my craft room and serve as inspiration and decoration!
 Even though I got totally spoiled this year at Christmas, I just had to buy myself one little thing...okay, so it was 3 little things!  But can you really blame me?  They are adorable and as you can see, I had a fun time taking pictures with them!
Would you like to do a little online shopping at Kohl's and maybe find an Eiffel Tower Ornament of your own?  Here is a coupon code for 10% off on  This code can be stacked on top of other codes to make the savings even better!  TENFORBLOG can be used anytime between now and March 9th.  Have fun shopping!

Hoping you all had a Merry Christmas!  And wishing you all a very Happy New Year!  Thank you for your friendship in 2012.  I know 2013 will be an even better year!
 Party hats I made for the big night.  I doubt we will even be awake still when the clock strikes midnight so these are perfect decorations!

What a beautiful ornament! I love that the Eiffel Tower is in a cloche! I've gone to Macy's and Younkers to look for after Christmas ornaments but I never thought of Kohls. Maybe I'll go check them out now! Have a wonderful new year!

Trisha, I was in Kohls before Christmas and saw that sweet ornament. I was so tempted to buy it, but my tree has plenty so I resisted. I think it looks great in your bathroom. Fun that you can enjoy it year round. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
