Art by Rayne Housey {Where were they hung?}


stair parlor5

I shared with you before Mardi Gras a couple pieces of art by Rayne Housey, a New Orleans artist. Each was placed on the mantle for all guests to see the spirit of the Carnival season. The flambeauxs, the Zulu warrior, and the Rex lieutenants on horseback are all classic, New Orleans Mardi Gras icons.




After Mardi Gras I certainly did not want to box them up because each is characteristic NOLA. I decided to hang the three vertically in the stair parlor beside the staircase. I love the look of the gold gild in the room. The glow goes so well with the installation of seeds I shared with you months ago.

Here in NOLA, Mardi Gras spirit is kept in our homes all year long.

I cannot wait to see this cutie tomorrow!


Rayne Housey, y’all!


  1. Ron, I love them hung up. Too pretty to hide away I agree!

  2. Those are such fun pieces, Ron. I would not want to pack them away either. They fit that wall space perfectly. Looks like you are gonna see someone special tomorrow! Happy Saturday. xo Diana

  3. I love them! And, that is the perfect spot. Oh my, what a cutie. While I love doughnuts (although haven't had them since going GF) I would scoop that baby up in a heart beat!!

  4. Good afternoon, Ron! The Rayne Housey Mardi Gras artwork pieces are perfect where you hung them! John David is so adorable! Enjoy your time with him tomorrow! Have a great evening! Cheers! xoxo

  5. What a perfect place to enjoy these year round!
