Following my last post, I dropped my camera and BROKE IT!!! I ended up bitting the bullet and took a couple of Christmas gift cards (thank you to my staff!!) and broke down and bought a Nikon DSLR camera. I was trying to save my gift cards, but oh well!! I still have an AWESOME gift card to Pottery Barn and one to Yankee Candle!!! I am waiting on just the perfect items.....
NOT that I have learned to use my camera yet, but I am trying. I have been so busy at work this week and nightly work duties (it's basketball playoff time!) until I haven't even been able to read the manual yet. I need a crash course on DUMMY CAMERA operation!!
Anywho, I have been working on my front porch and a tablescape for this weekend, Mardi Gras style!! I live on the Gulf Coast, so Mardi Gras is a big deal. We have one small parade in my town, but many larger parades in the nearby towns. I don't go to them because they can be pretty rough sometimes. I do, however, love the colors of Mardi Gras, and I do love the food.
I did make a Mardi Gras wreath for the front door, and I also decorated my two Christmas trees on the porch with a little bead bling and, of course, my favorite fleur de lis ornaments!!!
I also always plan a special Mardi Gras menu of red beans and rice, crusty French bread, and Krispy Kreme bread pudding!! YUM!!
Hope everyone is having a great week!! See you soon with pics of my Mardi Gras front porch and tablescape using my NEW CAMERA!! WOOHOO!!
