Last week we had a few lovely Spring-like days so the DH and I decorated the front of the house for Mardi Gras. Many of you may not realize that Mobile and the surrounding little towns celebrate the holiday. In fact, they tell you that Mardi Gras actually started in Mobile not New Orleans. We were down there visiting my step-Mom a few years ago and I bought the decorations right after Fat Tuesday as they were all half price! I think the folks up here wonder what on earth we are doing with all the beads, etc. on our front porch. The people down there take this holiday very seriously and have wonderful decorations. I hope you enjoy seeing them.
Current WIP, I think it is called Witches Nine. It is an old design by the Primitive Needle. I so miss her wonderful designs!
Our front door. I won't tell you the problem my DH had getting this 1/2 price wreath home-or what the cost was!!!!
We have bags of beads! So we used the hooks for Christmas lights and hung a few strings of beads!
Now we are in Southern Alabama. Enjoy! This parade was in the delightful town of Fairhope.
There were very elaborate floats!
The rest of the photos show you how various homes and businesses were decorated. Most pictures were taken in Fairhope and Daphne AL.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope you all have had a great week-end!
