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
