Scenes from the Weekend
Last Friday evening, I ventured out to Frenchmen Street in search of a Valentine’s Day gift for my roommate’s boyfriend. It was also a great excuse to visit my favorite cocktail spot in the Marigny neighborhood, Three Muses. On Saturday I went to Krewe du Vieux, the first parade and perhaps the most free-spirited, tongue-in-cheek parade of the entire Carnival season. I also found time to devote an entire afternoon to working somewhat fruitlessly at a framing project (I wanted to cover the frame with glitter to display a print of Louisiana). After several hours of frustratingly little progress, I realized that all my problems could be solved with nothing more than some spray adhesive and large flecks of gold glitter. In a city that sometimes appears to be held together by duct tape and paper clips, this makes perfect sense. Enjoy your week, xo!
i framed this card for my nightstand. i originally planned to frame my 2012 resolutions, but this just felt right. it was given to me by one of my great loves, jana, and it reads: “goodbye,” she said. “i’m off to join the circus.” if you know me at all, you probably understand.
finished frame project – the print itself can be found at the lilygene shop on etsy
