Inspiration. Old New Orleans home chandeliers with a modern touch.

The Zepplin looks like an old time chandelier covered in spider webs.

Skygarden. Love the detail inside. Like a ceiling medallion.

Looks like Mardi Gras beads were strung on chandelier from Arteriors.

On Mardi Gras day we managed to drag ourselves out of the house.

We picked up chicken from McCardys and spent the morning watching the sights of St. Ann. Josh and I in Aka hilltribe garb.

















Mathilda and Mose in some sort of costumes.























The kingcake baby.






















The sauras and the other dino sauras'





















This girl asked Mose to take a picture so all his friends would be jealous, but it was Josh who was.






















Mj in The Spotted Cat. Love this.






















The Muppets



















Mathilda at the barn with cat.

Boys fishing road trip to Toledo Bend.

First stop. Greasy spoon.





















After the rain, dock side fishing from their cabin on the lake.





















After the cold front, freezing fishing.










































Not many, but Mose reeled this one in.





















Last stop, Zwolle tamales.


















Despite the weather they had a great time fishing and playing cards, cooking, Disney channel, game boy and the Many La. Walmart. Mose made a list of things her learned on this trip. Number 1-Never fry bacon without a shirt:)

Girls weekend MG escape.

Mathilda and I headed out to St Pete beach over the Mardi Gras weekend. I have had this old motel turned surfer hip hotel in my travel file for awhile. Decided to check it out. We went parasailing, which was awesome, and then did the usual beach combing, castle building, burger eating, movie watching, book reading, relaxing stuff.

The Post Card Inn. St. Pete Beach Fla.



Lobby, surfing report, etc.






















Mathilda combing the beach.



MJ contemplating life, or lunch.



Our room had famous (and not so famous) quotes on the walls. And mid century furniture.




The lobby and the book nooks.



The special crackle toe sandy pedi.



Our drippy castle.


Wide beach and soft surf.


Our favorite, the nautilus.



We went into Tampa one day for a art market to see our friend Rebecca at her booth. We came home with So Soon Sour. Yeah!
