MARDI GRAS TIME

After taking down the front door Christmas wreath, it was time to put up the Mardi Gras decorations. I decided to make a wreath.I started out with a straw wreath and wired on this fabulous-I love it-green mesh. Don't worry the wire won't show Just make big loops.
Next I wired on this mask I picked up at Wally World and added some curly ribbon-royal purple of course. Added a little Spanish moss and some mardi gras beads, too. Now I know this is as over the top as you can get, but isn't that what Mardi Gras is? You should have seen my hubby and the son's face! I wonder what the neighbors think? I live on a very staid street.-Oh well, they are probably used to my crazy decorations by now....

St.Louis has a big party for MG. I never went, to wild and drunken for me. I am thinking about having a little party and make a King and Queen cake. But I might wait and have a Candlemass party, it's a celebration kinda like ground hog day. It might be more fun. If I can get my act together. have fun with your alls celebration. be careful and happy New Year. Richard from My Old Historic house.

Your Mardi Gras wreath makes me think of New Orleans. Never have been there for this big celebration but love the town at other seasons. Have a Happy New Year!
