How to completely overdo it
It all started with a tiny metal tower that hang loose on a musical box I picked up at a fleamarket. I gave the musical box a make-over and the metal tower just moved around, from drawer to top of fridge, back in a drawer again...until a few months later when I found a larger version in a container (that me and my friend Anna jumped into to search for treasures). The little tower had found a friend!
I soon found a sweet postcard from year 1912 and another from year 1915 and another...I also found a stereoview in my drawers from year 1900! Then I found this poster that looked like one of the postcards. Slowly I have found myself having this "thing" for these, in my opinion, fairly kitsch and tacky tourist items. Despite this fact, I decided to completely overdo it with Eiffel towers in the kitchen. And proof can be seen above. I have this vision of covering the cupboard door (just the one though!) with vintage postcards of the Eiffeltower.
