Snow in the backyard!

Snow in the backyard!

I just decided to be late for work this morning. I was transfixed. Pick a window of my home, any window… it was a Currier & Ives scene. We don’t get big fluffy snowflakes often that stick (‘stick’, meaning snow that ‘sticks around’ for more than a moment before melting clean away) but today was one of those rare days.

I raised up my bathroom shade while shaving, and just stood there letting the water run while I watched the flakes float down, and imagined I was in northern climes, if only for a moment.

Actual, live snow flakes on my sleeve.

Laurel Street Blog

Nate and Louis

Well, hey there. I'm Nathan and this is the Laurel Street Blog. It's a place for talking about design, decor and DIY (with small amounts of snarkery snuck in). I'm a pretty restless guy who loves house projects and lives in a 150+ year old cottage on Laurel Street in New Orleans. Since the house always has something going on with it (or falling off of it) I'm subsequently blessed with a never-ending supply of Web content to share. Oh - and you can drop me a line anytime LaurelStreetNola@gmail.com. Enjoy!

Can I get a tweet up in here? Follow along @LaurelStreet
