'Twas the Week before Mardi Gras...

and I'm pining for the scent of Sweet Olive delicately wafting through the air, hearing "Carnival Time" pumping loud and clear on every local radio playing in the car, bar or drugstore, and the thunder of St. Aug's band marching down the Avenue.  Sigh...soon enough!

I sketched these sillies last week in my anticipation...hope you enjoy!

Put Some Spring Near Your Front Step!

Well now, let's see...we have only had 2 fires in the fire place this rare and wild warm I'm taking down all the winter and snowmen decorations down and slapping some fun color up on my door.  Have loved seeing a revival of blue and white and pagodas in pictures from markets in Atlanta and  Highpoint, along with the ladies I follow on Instagram, so I thought I would give it a try!  Love how both turned out.

They're on my Etsy shop!

Mardi Gras Musings...

I have been tickled beyond belief with all of my Mardi Gras Door Hanger orders and designs and wanted to post.  

They make me happy, my customers happy and now I can't wait to get to New Orleans to see some of them in person!  This King Cake Baby has been fun and one customer asked me to put a fleur de lis on I gave him a little chest tat!

This jester cap and mask makes me giggle with its Krewe doubloons, beads and crowns... 

 and my huge monograms in Mardi Gras purple, green and gold...
