There's Still Time...

Tomorrow's Fat Tuesday.

Just in time we have another installment from guest blogger and resident wreath expert, Sarah - my college friend and super crafter!

Mardi Gras is this Tuesday, Feb. 21st. 
This wreath was created on a wood wreath form using cut-up beaded necklaces and favors gathered at parades, and plastic babies (which are hidden within one of the traditional foods of the season, the King Cake). You should probably do a better job than I did cleaning off the loose strands of hot glue after your project is finished.  

I no longer live where school is closed for Fat Tuesday and local krewes throw bashes and parades in the weeks leading up to the biggest day and last hurrah before the start of Lent, as signaled by Ash Wednesday.    

So, if you are like me, and not one of those Divinely Blessed individuals who actually resides within the Mardi Gras region, you can still send up a virtual toast to the holiday, have a fun reason to throw a themed party, and try to create for yourself a little pitiful (I-wish-I-was-at) Mardi Gras. You can festoon your residence with beads, mix up some Hurricanes and Sazeracs or any of the many other cocktails of Big Easy origins, and order a king cake from, say:  or

Laissez les bon temps rouler, y'all
Thank you so much Sarah! Let those good times roll!
