It's Carnival Time {Throw Me Something Mister!}

And so it begins....

Wednesday night, the ladies of the Krewe of Nyx put on a spectacular parade. Celebrating their 5 years, the floats were themed in reference to the number 5 --- Chanel No. 5, 5th President, etc. 

The signature throw, the glittered purse, is such a treasure. I added three to my collection.

Thanks, Nancy!

Thanks, Mari Ann!

Last night, one of my favorite krewes, Muses, rode through Uptown. It is always fun to see all trying to score the coveted glittered shoe.

This year, I scored 6. Yes! 6! Yeah, me!

Thanks, Lisa! 

Thanks, Shon!

Thanks, Sara!

Thanks, Tania!

Thanks, Chesley!

Thanks, Pam!

A busy weekend is upon us.

Nyx and Muses, y'all!


  1. You really scored this year! Do you have friends that throw to you or are you just super lucky? Love them all!

  2. Born and raised in New Orleans, left approx 1982. WOW, things change - these Krewe names are new to me, as are the wonderful throws. Thank you for sharing the pictures. Reminds me of times gone by!

  3. 3 purses and 6 shoes! I'd say you scored BIG. NOLA must be hopping every night. How do you keep up? Have fun and be safe!

  4. Good evening, Ron! I think you scored pretty well with purses and shoes! Happy Mardi Gras! Cheers! xoxo
