Now on to Mardi Gras. A few years ago we were down in Mobile at Mardi Gras time. It was so festive and fun. It seemed like every night a little town in the area had a parade. In fact, the Mobile folks say that Mardi Gras began in Mobile not New Orleans. One thing I liked about the Alabama version was that it was very family friendly not just a big wild party. So anyway , I bought some decorations. It looked like Christmas down there. Most homes were decorated so pretty. I'll do a post tomorrow to show you some pictures we took. I suppose my neighbors up here think we have lost our minds since it is not big at all. We did have fun putting our things up. I hope you enjoy the photos.
My second finish for 2013 is Feb. Word Play. I loved doing it and have ordered more for other months. Have a super week!
The Mardi Gras wreath
These were 1/2 price at Michaels!
I am not sure how I want to finish these. Right now I am thinking that I will get one frame and change them out each month. My linen was lighter than it shows in the picture.
