Making History....


Being born and raised in Southern Louisiana has some perks you know. Not only do we have great food and music but there is history! Tons of it. So much history in fact you almost become immune to the beauty that surrounds you. I want to share some of that with you and along the way show you how you can make some history of your own come alive.

Having a piece of the past is not always available nor affordable for everyone. This is where I come in...If you cant find it to buy it, You can make it and fake it!
Im going to show you how to turn a new piece of wood into a piece of history for just pennies! Your friends will think you have been down here shopping the French Quarter with me! So get your house cleaned and your lil darlings fed cause we have a bit of "History" to create!

  5. I lived in Louisiana many a long year ago, right after I married (the first time). I was a teenager almost the entire time I was there. I wish now, I had paid closer attention to detail!;-)

    Sounds like a fun project!

  12. I'd love to find some of those corbels up there in your pic. Did that price say $250 each?? Yeah, that's out of my range, friend.

  13. Oh la la! Miss Susie, I can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve. :) I *hope* you might be able to make it by my 2nd Decorating Dilemmas party. I'm putting it up tonight after 10 (ET), and we'll party all day tomorrow. :) If you have a Solution instead of a Dilemma, that's cool too. I'm going to do another Giveaway for the participants.

  19. hey susie,

    i had a bit of advice i wanted to ask in an email, but in your "contact me" section the email address you listed doesn't work, and yes I used the correct @ signs and such. :D Is the email address correct or is my computer just acting funny? thanks!
