Postcard memories from New Orleans


During my trip to New Orleans last fall, one of the many fun things that Laure Ferlita has us do was make a postcard to send to a secret travel buddy. This is the postcard that I made and sent to my secret pal. We were to think of what our secret buddy really enjoyed about NOLA and try to incorporate some of her favorites in our postcard. Cafe Du Monde was one of the special places that we visited and I knew my travel partner would enjoy a memory of our visit there, the coffee, and of course the fresh beignets totally covered in powdered sugar!! It was a fun assignment, and extended the trip for all of us as we anxiously waited for our postcard to arrive in the mail. Great idea!!

That coffee with beignets look so good, I wish I had them for my mid-morning coffee break today! What nice memories those postcards must have delivered.

Your beignets look so good I want to reach right in and grab one! This is a cute idea and your postcard is a lovely keepsake.

Mmm - I can just taste the beignets again looking at your postcard.

Wish we were there right now, sipping coffee and eating beignets. I love the postcard. Great job.

Another fun and well done page, Claire! What fun to trade these beautiful postcards- someone was very lucky to get this one!

Yes, I think an order of beignets and a cafe au lait would be just about perfect right now with the coolish temps and a Spring in the air!!

Thanks for a quick trip back to NOLA!
