French Quarter Lace

I spent a couple days last week with my sister in New Orleans.  One of my favorite things about the city is the beautiful iron balconies in the French Quarter.


It’s always interesting to see how people decorate their balconies with plants and flowers.


Most of these condos/apartments don’t have an outdoor space (aside from a shared courtyard perhaps), so they have to make do with the space they have.


While researching my genealogy in high school, I learned that one of my ancestors was an iron-worker and some of his work can be found in the French Quarter.  It’s so neat to think that a piece of my history could be on any one of these balconies!
