(¸.*´ (¸.*`¤~This box is dedicated to the carnival of Mardi Gras. Today being (Super Tuesday) as well as Fat Tuesday, and the culmination of Mardi Gras, Lent begins tomorrow with Ash Wednesday. Today, all hell is had and embraced, for tomorow you fast!!! It's 7 3/4" wide, 5 1/2 deep and 4 1/2" high. Trimmed in the 3 traditional colors of Mardi Gras and her mystic crews, green, purple and gold. Handpainted green festive feet adorned with gold ruffles and and purple fringe. Reminiscent of the floats, beads and garlands thrown about on Bourbon Street.
•May New Orleans rise up and shine, this is her party!•
A great box to hold your memories, photos and beads from Mardi Gras past. Inside the box, the bottom is lined with with sexy black velvet. A great box to enjoy as an art piece or conversation treasure. Please look at all the photos to see the various images I've used on this collectible.
These look old and new at the same time. I think this is what lends such an artsy air to them!
Comes to you from a non-smoking home. Only thing I burn is incense and occasionally dinner!
To make this box yours, simply go to my etsy site and add it to your cart.
