This is a day that is celebrated by many across the world, but has not been a part of my holiday celebrations. Someday, I'll make it down to New Orleans as it is one of the well-known cities in the US I have not visited. I doubt I'll go for Mardi Gras, though . . .
The colors and food associated with the holiday are festive and fun. When I was creating my first series of holiday garlands, I included a colorful skull garland because I thought it could be used for a variety of celebrations, including Mardi Gras. It continues to be one of my favorite decorative garlands.
Today, I finished up my peacock feathers so they are waiting for the tea cozy body. I really like these motifs and am wondering what else can be made with them.
