2012 NEIMAN MARCUS FANTASY GIFTS ANYONE CAN AFFORD???

HIS & HERS 2012It all begins with a classic story: Boy meets girl. A romance is sparked. They share a kiss at midnight on Paris's Pont des Arts. But fate intervenes, and they are separated. Each night, they send wishes—he upon a star, she upon a kite—that, one day, they will reunite.

This tale of love found and lost inspired the "Poetic Wish" watches from Van Cleef & Arpels. Mini works of art on the outside and exemplary displays of technical watchmaking behind the dial, these masterpieces are in need of their own happily ever after.

So the search began for ginormous letters to mount on my wall. Huge letters, I found, were more than I wanted to spend so I found some nice sized 9" MDF letters at Michaels.









One of the things I love about these letters is the rich look of depth to the letters. To create your own faux, weathered-wood look, you'll need some acrylic paints in Raw Umber and Crimson, or whatever colors you like.
