Mardi Gras is a wonderful festival of good times and even better food! It is a Holiday in many regions of the world, but in the United States it is only officially celebrated in Louisiana (New Orleans). It is celebrated February 17th!
I asked many CIJ members if they had any masks, costumes, hats or anything else to celebrate this festive holiday!
Noel of MinkCouture says:
This hand knitted fascinator not only features the Mardi Gras colors, but a crown and 3 hand-made tiny beaded necklaces!
Connie Lee of Bungalow42 states:
Laissez les bons temps rouler! (“Let the good times roll”)
Julie Siomacco of SouthernCharmWreaths:
