I always told my children when things went wrong “If it never rained, you wouldn’t appreciate the sunshine.” So to try to cheer up our battled and bruised Louisiana, we decided to add all of our beautiful and happy suzanis to the website. You just can’t look at a suzani and feel sad. And whether you’ve been through a hurricane or not, who wants to be sad?
As you know our beloved Louisiana has been slammed again, Ida-clare. But if you look for the positive in the whole disaster, the state’s heart and soul is ever so impressive. And the levees held in New Orleans, so restaurants and shops have jumped through miraculous hoops and are now open and anxiously awaiting the return of visitors.
Fortunately Baby Viz was home with us in North Louisiana for the storm along with all of our NOLA refugees. We were all wringing our hands while watching the Weather Channel. Seeing the horrifying devastation South of New Orleans (where some levees were breached), and secondly worrying about the Magazine Street pillows mildewing over time with no electricity, Sarah immediately donned her cape to try to save the day.
