Springtime is definitely the festival season here in New Orleans. On Monday, the carrots on my front doors came down and were replaced by wooden saxophones denoting the festival season filled with music, food, and fun.
The saxophones were again designed by Melissa Henry of Show Me the Door.
I love how each horn is decked with ribbons that blow in the wind.
My favorite festival is French Quarter Fest which comes in just two weeks.
