New Art

I have a couple of new additions to the art on my walls at home.

Here are the signs that Tatiana made me for my surprise in New Orleans.  Ginger had to point them out to me because I was just not catching onto the surprise.  Even then I looked at the sign and though "Huh, that's odd that someone named Trixie is getting picked up at the airport.  How weird.".  Finally I caught on to their mischievous activities and was VERY excited and happy to see everyone together!

I also bought a piece of art in New Orleans.  I truly believe that "art" is whatever you love and whatever speaks to you.  It doesn't matter if you buy it from a city gallery or from a sidewalk street vendor.  In this case I spotted this work right away in Jackson Square.  I decided to wait since we hadn't even started to walk around yet but I ended up coming back to it.  Here I am with the artist and with the picture now displayed in my kitchen.


  1. me, too. Made me laugh and tear up at the same time. And I love Jackson Square. We went several times when I lived down there and it never got old. I never bought any of the art but now I wish I had a few pieces. The piece you purchased has a great feel to it.
