a very louisiana weekend

In the spirit of Mardi Gras and because we're doing our best to soak up [and purchase] all things Louisiana before moving to the not-so-creole state of South Carolina, I bring you a few Bayou State favorites.

Mardi Gras circa 1900 [via]

Did you know about the slight changes in our flag over the years? Details, people. Details.

A mighty large boot, but I totally love it. I've entered to win it - fingers crossed!

A pillow cover to add to my mix-matched collection.

A print to hang on the wall next to my coveted L. Young canvas [I have the cotton one].

It's fascinating to me how star-studded Mardi Gras has become [check out number 12 - how hilarious is that?]

One day, our children must sport this, this, and this.

A trail I'd like to follow.

And tour I'd like to peddle through.

With a not-so-abundant supply in SC, I will have to master the king cake. And this too.

Laissez les bons temps rouler, y'all!
