We’ve Been Discovered!

New Orleans ranked seventh in Trip Advisor’s recent list of the top 25 US destinations. Here’s part of what they had to say about us: “The city’s walkable historic core, including Faubourg Marigny, the French Quarter, Warehouse and Arts District, Magazine Street, the Garden District, Audubon Park and Zoo and St. Charles Avenue, are flourishing anew and eager to welcome visitors once again. Whether for the jazz, the nightlife, the hopping gay scene, the food, the culture, or for that distinctive joie de vivre, it’s time to head back to the Crescent City.”
So you know what we find really cool about this? Faubourg Marigny is mentioned before the French Quarter. We’ve been discovered! It wasn’t long ago that only a handful of savvy travelers knew about our nifty little neighborhood.


Mardi Gras Repurposed

The original Mardi Gras beads were glass. A friend gave us these, and it turns out they make a beautiful tie-back for the new kitchen curtains.


Thanks Brennan’s

We borrowed an idea from Brennan’s this morning and made the cinnamon-sugar toasted French bread that they serve with their famous breakfast.frenchtoast
