Yes, there was a lavender house posted here two days ago, and now here’s another one!

I could make a book of lavender houses to go with the book of pink houses of NOLA that I need to make.

I love how the folks living here have added wreaths and decorations to match the home.  Festive!

This is post #341, so clearly I didn’t quite meet the 2011 Post A Day challenge, but you can find a lot of NOLA architecture images if you peek through the archives.

For 2012, I’m going to concentrate on my all-encompassing blog, nolawildandprecious.com.  I encourage you to follow me over there; I think you’ll like it if you’ve enjoyed this photo blog of NOLA images.  You’ll still get plenty of great images of the city, along with a bit more story.  And I won’t feel so spread out among three blogs.  I’ll miss the Duotone theme, but I have lots of exciting things going on and keeping up with three daily (or almost daily) blogs just isn’t going to fit with the plan anymore.  I may still post a few more images here, but for the most part I think I’m retiring NOLA Details.

Thanks so much to all of my frequent visitors and subscribers; I’ve had over 20,000 views and that’s pretty cool!  Thanks especially to Ruth, Jeanne, Theresa, Katie, John and Don for such regular comments and to everyone for the likes.  I hope you’ll join me over at nolawildandprecious if you’re not already there, and if you’re in need of a little taste of New Orleans, bookmark this page and use the categories or archives to search for a pretty image on days when you need a dose of NOLA.

Cheers, everyone!

  1. Carla, you have done an exceptional job of capturing the essence of NOLA neighborhoods. I have enjoyed riding alongside you through the streets of our beloved NOLA. Your daily postings have been a bright spot in my day.
    You really should turn this blog into a book. If you should get around to doing that…count me in for a dozen copies!
    I am looking forward to following along on the adventures of nolawildandprecious. Be blessed my friend!

  2. Oh, this is sad, but still I thank you for showing us all the color, charm, history and great architecture in NOLA. And thanks for mentioning me. I’ve loved seeing these photos. And I’ll be watching your other blog also. All my best!

  3. I hit the follow button on your other blog, so I won’t miss a thing.

    Keep up the great work that you are doing.

  4. I’ll definitely be sorry to see this end, I very much look forward to your posts and have mentioned a number of times to the husband how much I was to visit NOLA because of this blog 🙂 Being a ‘mom’ to more than one blog though I certainly understand your decision and look forward to seeing your posts on Wild and Precious!

    • Thanks so much, Theresa! I hope you’ll get plenty of stories and cool architecture and good stuff on NOLA Wild and Precious – and hope you can make a motorcycle trip here sometime! 🙂

  5. Across the country, 294 jurisdictions have adopted the “Complete Streets” concept. If the ordinance were to pass here, New Orleans would be the first city in the Louisiana to formally do so.

  6. Carla, I’ll follow you anywhere. No, I’m not a stalker and, yes, I’m happily married. It’s just that you’ve gotten me addicted to your NOLA photos, Even though the focus of the other blog is more general (I’ve already been there and subscribed), I’m looking forward to ALL the NOLA details you have to share.

    Thank you for all of the wonderful photos you have posted here.

    –John

    • Thank you John! I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed NOLA Details so much. With Mardi Gras decorations going up all over town, I’ll definitely be showcasing some of the extra-pretty ones and the houses underneath all of the beads and bunting! So glad you’ve come along to NOLA Wild and Precious and thanks so much for the support!`
