Mardi Gras

As I sit here this cloudy Tuesday morning, catching up on blogs and watching Meredith Vieira tweet for the first time, I'm reminded that today is the Tuesday before Lent.  Which means it's Fat Tuesday.  Which means......


We could all be in New Orleans:

Wow, how nuts does that look??? I'm not sure if I could handle those crowds! We'd definitely have to go with someone who has been before - someone who knows all the NOLA Mardi Gras secrets :>)

Some tried and true Mardi Gras Beads:

You can't help but feel beautiful and mysterious in one of these feathered masks!  This wold make a great piece of art, too...hmmm :>)

Some more bead inspiration:

More NOLA Mardi Gras art:

The official colors of Mardi Gras are Purple, Green, and Gold.  I recently learned (on Apt. Therapy) that these three colors have official meanings behind them: Justice, Faith, and Power, respectively.  

A little room inspiration:

Has anyone ever been to the Big Easy for Mardi Gras?  Is it really as exciting as it looks?

Have a great Fat Tuesday!
