Here is the original post from January 22, 2012 (almost 5 years ago):
Purple & Gold. Check! Black & Gold. Check! Purple, Green, & Gold. Check!!!
Where else but in Southern Louisiana would the colors purple, green, and gold be considered fashionable, stylish, or "in season"? Well? At this time of year, we all bleed purple, green, and gold around these parts.
Starting on January 6, the red and green decor comes down and is replaced by the trio of purple, green, and gold--- ribbons, plumes, jesters, bunting, lights, dishes....
Living just a block off the traditional Uptown parade route, our home becomes a haven for a many Mardi Gras revelers.
Sit back, sip your cafe au lait, and enjoy my home decorated in its purple, green, and gold splendor.
