I’m re-publishing parts of an old post from May to join up with the Multiples Party over at Vintage Junky. I apologize in advance for the poor photo quality, I took them when I was relatively new to blogging and hadn’t “perfected” my photography skills, and I’m too lazy to re-take them all!
I realized while hanging my newest piece of fleur de lis artwork that I really and truly am addicted to all things fleur de lis. While I know it may seem cliche to some, I have a connection to fleur de lis given that I am born and bred in Louisiana. It is such a unique symbol not only for our state, but for the city of New Orleans, where I lived for several years (and still miss). I guess my addiction really began during my days as a merchandise buyer for a tourist/gift shop in NOLA. Having access to tons of fleur de lis merchandise at wholesale prices only fueled the fire! Now I know this all may seem like overkill, but I've tried to keep it subtle and spread throughout the house so you don't walk in and become overwhelmed with fleur de lis. And while I have many pieces of fleur de lis artwork and decor items, each piece is meaningful and unique. I thought I would share a few of my favorites today.
Although it can be fun to decorate in multiples, I try not to let it completely take over the house. Hopefully they are all spread out enough that my house doesn’t look like a fleur de lis showroom! But just when I think I’ll never buy another fleur de lis again, I’ll find one that I simply cannot live without!
Please take a moment to check out my earlier post and give me your feedback on my “Blast From the Past” Decorating Party, I would appreciate it!
