New Orleans & Chalk Paint
Paris Grey? Everywhere we went in New Orleans we were seeing Chalk Paint colours and so we should as this was a business trip after all! :)We walked the French Market, a shopping destination for more than 200 years. Greek Blue? Everywhere we went there are beautiful shutters in every colour you could imagine. Jackson Square St. Louis Cathedral Primer Red? What do you think? We were told that a trip to New Orleans is not complete without a trip to the historic
Cafe De Monde for coffee and beignets so....I did not want to miss out on this experience and I was not disappointed.Our view of Jackson Square with all the horse drawn carriages just waiting to take you on a tour... but sadly not for us this time...we are here on business after all! In the French Quarter they have a lot of these Creole Townhouses with shops below and homes above. I loved all the architecture.Lots of little places to stop for a bite to eat...
after all for some New Orleans is all about the food! Even though it is not Mardi Gras Season, beads can be found hanging just about anywhere! Royal Street is known for it's antique shops...HELLO! Hidden back alleys are so peaceful...just look at these French Olive Jars. Shopping and Galleries are plentiful on Royal Street.Bevolo Gas & Electric Lights keep New Orleans a glow at night. They are so beautiful, I would have liked to take a few home. I sat in that sun beam and could not wipe the smile off my face. Definitely hard to leave this alley way. You never know what you will find around every corner of New Orleans but I can't wait to return to continue our discoveries.
