Throw Me Sometin’ Mister & Happy Mardi Gras {2013}!


Happy Mardi Gras, friends & followers! Today is Carnival in our neck of the woods, one more day of parades, eating, and drinking (but not so much).

Hail Rex!


I hope you catch one of these today, a prized Zulu coconut.

Parade riders really know me. Just check out the selection of beads and things that were thrown from floats or “walking krewes”. I adore my fave mollusk.

Oyster Shell beads… Thanks BFF Sal.
