A Perfect Gem - A Story Told With Vignettes

No words need tell this lovely story...

Just look at the thoughful vignettes artful and expert and fresh...

"Fortitude" is the name of the statue

The paper was made by DeGournay, Ltd., and is based on the 1941 book, "The Story of the Mississippi", by Marshall McClintock with illustrations by C.H. DeWitt.

The picture of the vulture cracks me up

The beautiful front hall

This lovely house is right around the corner from where we lived when we first came to New Orleans nine years ago, and I know the exterior very well.

And now we all get to peek inside this 1830 gem.

You know I have a thing for daybeds

No granite need apply

Classic courtyard

Carnival mask, old silver and porcelain, feathers, and books
How sublime!

A canon ball

No Drab Age here!
Love the color of this chair seat

St. Joseph

I have the matching Mary!
Really! These are my girls

Ginger and bougainvillea grow like weeds here

The proud co-owner on his balcony
No it's not Eddie Ross
It's interior designer Thomas Jayne
