What’s that you say? Hush up? Girl, you talk to much?
This post requires no words. Just pictures and a few explanations. Just a few. I promise.
I purchased the Mardi Gras beads from the dollar store $3.00, and the black glitter at Michael’s for $2.50 (with 50% off coupon). I had everything else on hand. The candles are battery operated, and a Christmas gift from my mother (Costco).
The sign and music notes were cut from scrap plywood. I designed each piece, and then my partner-in-crime cut them out for me. He has skills with a skill saw, what can I say?
I designed the Bourbon Street sign after the actual Bourbon Street sign in New Orleans. It is not exactly the same, I took a bit of creative license.
And because everything is better with glitter, once I finished painting the sign, I slathered a heavy coat of mod-podge on it and went to town with the glitter.
Sorry, enough with the chit-chat.
We will be making masks as part of an activity during our Mardi Gras get together. I am really looking forward to that project. I think the girls are going to really enjoy it.
A little more up-close.
And even closer, still. Sorry, I just love the pretty, shiny. I am just having so dang much fun this week!
Speaking of Mardi Gras, did you enjoy some Cafe’ au lait?
How about a Beignet (or three?)
The wind is blowin’ and it is raining cats and dogs here on Wilbur Road. How about ‘yall? How is it in your neck of the woods?
