Wouldn’t the world be a better place if you could just have everything you needed, when you needed it, right at your fingertips? Like a nail file, polish remover, and cotton balls in the garden, hidden among the cabbage after you’ve broken an old spade on a rock and nearly sliced your finger off? Forget the […]

The other day, I was window shopping, and by ‘window shopping’, I mean shopping with my Visa. Sometimes I do this which is actually all the time. A quick swing through a favorite consignment shop and ‘Voila’! Must have. How much? Who cares! Pretty thing. Wanna come home with momma? Wrap it! Thank you. Come […]

When I was young, my mother made sure I knew how to do certain things- important things, like how to apply mascara, rotate a linen closet, tip the garbage man in July, bring a near-dead goldfish back to life with heart massage, balance a checkbook, never spend too much (hahahaaaa), always be on time (or […]

Autumn. What a lovely time of year. The air temperature cools and the colors of nature become lit with the muted tones of old jewels. School begins and millions of mothers quietly Praise God for He in His Wisdom certainly inspired John Dewey to lobby for the idea of a Public School System which is […]

  • Ruchira Khanna - awesome clicks cheryl.
    Isn’t it amazing that man has made each season so colorful by introducing so many festivals.

    Your autumn clicks make me look fwd to this season.

    great post!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - This was NOT a ‘festival’ Ruchira- this is just a shop, like many others, open year round- very TYPICAL. That’s what makes it’s a magical place.ReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - Beautiful shots! Makes the city very inviting!ReplyCancel

  • bookworm - Never been to New Orleans. I just pinned two of these and am wondering when I will finally visit. My Dad, while I was growing up, always wanted to go for Mardi Gras, and one thing led to another, and he never went. I do owe his memory something!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Your Dad sounds like he was a man who liked a party and would have fit right in. When you visit don’t forget to give me a call (seriously) and THANKS for the pin!ReplyCancel

  • Francene Stanley - As a person living in England, I fail to grasp the joy those in your beautiful area find in skeletons. But the diversity in the world helps everyone to see points of view another way. Great pictures.ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - I think they are enjoyed as a macabre image that can give a little scare but can’t hurt you- jingling all over the place, dancing like fools, often with a top hat on. Thanks for stopping by Francene- nice to see you again!ReplyCancel

  • Sophie Bowns - What fantastic photos! I love autumn too 🙂ReplyCancel

       There are very few ‘new looks’ in retail that surprise me.      Not that I’ve ‘seen it all’- not by a long shot.      It’s just that unless I’m in another country (and exploring indigenous items) I’m pretty accustomed to seeing beautiful things smartly displayed. After all, I live in New Orleans.   […]
