Bubbles From The Old Ursuline Convent

Built in 1752 this New Orleans landmark is the oldest surviving examples of the French colonial period. On Thursday, the historic Ursuline Convent was the location to a champagne event called Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles (Yes, I know). This champagne tasting had my fingers on the point and shoot button because I fell in love.

Hand written notes from Thomas Jefferson! The statue of touchdown Hail Mary! Life size saint statues! The herb garden! The French Quarter backdrop! The art! The moustache door hinges! The Spanish architecture! As far as the event went - well, Nola you have the venue, your missing the eye candy. Too many boys in oversized pleated khaki pants, ladies in frump-a-lump paisley fo-silk shirts and not enough styled-out party goers I'm comfortable with. However, I didn't care about the people, I was all about the place!

Dementia Dish

This was giving to me by an elderly lady with dementia who lives in the building where I am temping. Her New Orleans old money wealth bears treats when she walks out of her downtown apartment. She's always draped in her golden jewels and accompanied by her gentle giant rottweiler. I like when she pops out of her apartment because I know something old folks bizarre will happen and that makes my day go by faster.

Everyday is Halloween

People down in New Orleans really don't need Halloween as an excuse to dress up in costume. While most of these images are from Halloween a few are from a random Saturday night out. Every night is Halloween in my mind and I appreciate taking pictures of a good costume. In case your wondering, (and I know you are) what I was for Halloween this year, I dressed up as sexy Frida Kahlo. Yes, unibrow power was in full bushy force that night!! <3>
