My Louisiana roots have me thinking about Mardi Gras season. Most Louisianians put up Mardi Gras decorations right after Christmas.
My mantel has my small collection of my favorite Mardi Gras things.
You just about need anything purple, gold and green. A few fleur de lis here and there and done.
A fun jester sits amongst the lights and greenery. He was a gift from my sister in Baton Rouge.
A New Orleans photographer's work, Johnny Donnels, fits in well. The priest print is called "morning meditations" and the smaller original photograph is "the eye of the storm".
I had to get creative with this area, because I "put away" the framed artwork I had hanging there before Christmas. I "put it away" so well, I can't find it. I'm sure it will show up.
The festive martini glass was a gift from a Louisiana best friend and crowns always work well and help add that touch of royalty.
Very fun and festive and I get to enjoy some of my Christmas lights just a while longer.
