Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler

Well,  as you can see I love decorating about as much as I love scrapbooking.  It's just another way for me to create.  I have always decorated for most of the holidays since we built our house...and each year it just gets more and more! 

 I put this up in stages and as I added the gold ornaments, I was on the phone....I am a mom and a multi-tasker! So as you can see I didn't quite pay attention to their locations, as I would have spaced them out a little better if I would have not been multi-tasking- LOL.
 I love the large masks that I incorporated into the swag. Some of the items are left over from past years, but I find that the mesh ribbon has to be changed out, if it gets alot of sun.
 Most of you know I've had a fetish for frogs since I was a little girl.  I had a frog high chair, my mother made me a frog b-day cake one its always been a thing of mine.  So of course when I saw these two cuties, I couldn't pass them up.  Speaking of frogs...Dax just got his tadpole eggs in the mail so we are hatching frogs over here!
Just another little something my mom gave me several years ago...a Mardi Gras frog print.  It's time to get this sucker framed, don't you think?!

Well, once I posted my door decorations, my soon-to-be sister -n-law from Galveston couldn't resist! They have Mardi Gras down there, but they just don't get the great decorations that we can get.  She wanted to hired me to come and decorate her door and banisters on her front porch!  I can't wait! But I'm not letting her pay me- I am going to decorate for Mardi Gras and for their wedding and that will be one of their gifts from me!

I hope everyone has a safe Mardi Gras season! And eat lots of King Cake!
