When The Saints Go Marchin' In...

found at Perch. ask them about it

...I won't be in their number....I'll hop the St. Charles Avenue streetcar north to the Garden District. From there I'll walk towards the river's bend, pausing at the Garden District Book Shop on Prytania Street for a browse and a chai latte before heading a few more blocks past Commander's Palace to Magazine Street...heaven on earth for this California-transplanted-New-Orleans-native-designer-with-a-love-for-all-things-French, old-&-chic!

I'm reasonably sure any true-blue designer would meet me there this {Super Bowl} Sunday! We'll leave the ponderous and dark shops of Royal Street with its period antiques (splendid!) for the lighter mood up on Magazine. And we'll leave the serious business of cheering on the Saints v. Colts for members of Who Dat nation!

No better place to lighten the mood than Perch. There we'll meet up with blogger Valorie Hart & designer Jack Mayberry decamped among all the very hip and chic furnishings. If we're lucky we might even see Girl, the sweet shop doggie!

ask Jack or Valorie about this fabulous lamp at Perch.

lighthearted mix of happy, non-wintery colors and mood at Perch.

this is the way to add the all-important set of horns to your
large, blank wall....find it at Perch.

I love the fruit prints on the wall and the mix of pillows...kept
from being too sweet by the hip lamp

a large metal tree sculpture over a bed, with
beautiful chandeliers... at Perch.

this very cool turquoise glass chandelier could
come home with me anytime!

Hi Valorie!!

the very talented and chic designer, the sweet Jack Mayberry; photo
taken with my iPhone, that's why it's not in great focus, sorry Jack!

after all that design work, let's go across to the fabulous Sucre on Magazine Street
for French macaroons......

...and a cup of this!!!

Now, if you do find yourself somewhere wonderful on this Super Bowl Sunday, and if you are rooting for the Saints, you just might want to hedge your bets and bring along a little of Emeril Lagasse's Jambalaya for the crowd, followed by the world famous White Chocolate Bread Pudding from the Palace Cafe in New Orleans. Sorry, you'll have to make these yourself...click on the links for recipes!
