Mardi Gras Shoes 2014

Mardi Gras is one of those crazy, over the top celebrations.  A week long party filled with color, music, and glitter...tons and tons of glitter!  If you ask my sister Freda, she can probably give you a pretty exact accounting of the glitter she uses every other year to make Mardi Gras Shoes for our beloved clients.  These individual works of art are handed out from floats in New Orleans.  This year she made 200 unique, hand crafted shoes. Each one was an individual masterpiece of glitz and glam.
