New Orleans Garden Art - Little houses

concretenprimroses(4B NH)June 29, 2010

Strawberrygoat/Becky asked me about the pic of the little house from New Orleans on the side bar of my blog. I decided to answer in a separate post.

These were part of a display at the New Orleans Botanical Garden a couple of years after Katrina. I'm not sure who the artist was unfortunately. Actually, I think there were many different artists. I'm sure we have a brochure, somewhere. (Sigh... See post about decluttering.)

There are more on my blog. Here is a post I did some time ago with others, and there is also one in my sidebar.

Each one hung on a pole with a location name painted on the pole. I love them!

Enjoy!

I love New Orleans and I adore those little houses. Someone put a lot of heart in them. Since I'm originally from Louisiana, I always have a fondness for anything from there.

I'm from Louisiana too! Baton Rouge, but now I'm in New Hampshire via NJ, VA, MA, MN, WI, IL, and OR. I think I'm done :)

What cool little houses. They capture the flavor of New Orleans so well. I only visited once, but we spent a week there, visiting my sister at Tulane. That was back in the 1980s. (Tragic about the double hit of Katrina and now the BP oil disaster.)

Do you know what these mini houses are made from Kathy? If you do create some NH style houses I'd love to see photos!

Making my own Nawlins-style houses is one of the many projects that I want to do! I think I may have figured out a way. I should make them one by this fall so I can test it over the winter. I'll certainly post about it if I do.

Love the houses, tfs. I'm not from Nawlins but have spent many happy days there with the worlds friendliest people, most helpful cops, tastiest food, most colorful culture and livliest night life. Cheryl
