Other amusements in the French Quarter

I broke away from the convention mayhem in the late afternoon ...

... catching the spires of St Louis Cathedral from Chartres Street. 

I loved the colorful houses and green balconies!

Shoes are an addiction to some ...

... and art to others!

Here's the townhouse across from Shoe Be Do ... a little more conservative than the shoes!

What is the chance that I would find a book shop during a book convention?  I am giving away a book choice from my convention stash to one randomly selected commenter from this week's blogs.  To enter the giveaway, leave a comment about the French Quarter - have you visited?  Or the shoes - would you wear them?  Or the book shop - would you take a peek? Comments are open through Saturday, May 31, 10 pm in Baltimore.  I'll post the winner on Sunday, June 1.

  1. I have visited the French Quarter and would love to go back and see it again. Love the architecture there. So many interesting things to see.

  2. I haven't had the chance to visit the French Quarter, but I would love to someday. I would definitely check out the shops.

  3. I've been there twice but just for the evening when my husband was stationed in Gulfport, MS. I wish we had made more trips!

  4. I have not, but was t

  5. I have not been there and would love to visit and No, I would not wear those shoes. I like my feet comfortable.

  6. I wish my townhouse looked like that, gorgeous pics. I have never been there, looks like a wonderful place.
