I have wanted to visit the bayou since the very first time I saw the music video for Crash by Dave Matthew’s Band (which is one of my favorite music videos of all time). It was stunningly beautiful and lived up to all of my expectations.
Trick or Treat! I think New Orleans is one of the most amazing cities for Halloween. Just check out the decor and architecture of this house! I feel like we’re at the haunted mansion at Disneyland!! Wandering around Bourbon street was also amazing. So many people dressed up ❤️ I love Halloween.
🚨UNIQUE GIFT IDEA🚨 Slate ornaments are the perfect gift or addition to your Christmas tree this year! Not only is each slate unique, but it’s a part of New Orleans’ history too! They are made from roofing slates from homes in the French Quarter. You will literally have a piece of New Orleans with you this Christmas! PLUS, THEY ARE 💥ON SALE💥!!!

Built in 1873, the Hart House combines 3 distinct styles: Gothic Revival, Queen Anne Revival, and Eastlake detailing.
It is also one of our favorites because of the #littlefreelibrary
- look what we found! 📚
Jacob Cohen and Christine Nicolaisen were the first couple to be married at Carrollton Ave. Methodist Church in 1886 when it was founded. They came to America that same year from Germany and settled in Carrollton to open a dry goods store. This was their first store on the corners of Hampson and Short. In their day it was not a double residence, but a corner store with a wrap around awning and their residence was in the back. The Cohen's lived and worked here side by side for 15 years until they were able to purchase a large two story Victorian home on Carrollton Avenue that they converted into a downstairs store with their residence on top (today it is Cindy's Nails). Jacob passed away just two weeks after the couples 50th wedding anniversary which left his wife much depressed and ill for the two years she continued to live without him. Old timers say she died of a broken heart.

Each morning when I wake up before I put on my makeup, I check reviews. I’m pleased to report that Two Chicks Walking Tours has earned 2,700 of them (and counting!) on TripAdvisor, Yelp!, Google and Facebook. My squad and I enjoy sharing the history and culture of New Orleans so much, thanks for the rave reviews everyone.

I think I may have a love affair with old doors. I love day dreaming about who has walked through them through the years. Nobility? Royalty? Pirates? You just never know!
Sometimes works in progress outnumber space in my studio. Shelves, bookcases & floor space fill with varies stages of unfinished, but eventually everything gets done in the endless repetition of studio time & markets that make up fall & holiday season.
Rosy-fingered dawn? Is that you, or mauve-fingered dawn? #haha #jokes
