This is a corner of her creating room:
Here she is fixing a soda for Jim - see the stove? She bought that when she lived in California, had it shipped to this house in New Orleans. She loves that stove!

Beautiful home! I'm not sure this house was even "on" the tour!
I loved this porch, it was so inviting, I almost walked up and sat down for a glass of iced tea. I wonder if they would have minded?
We saw many historic homes, including the one in which Confederate President Jefferson Davis died, several houses owned at one time by author Ann Rice, Actor John Goodman's home, and so many more!
At the end of the tour is one of New Orleans famous cemeteries - there was a lot of action there today! Seems they are filing an episode of the TV show, Vampire Diaries here.
The tour completed, we headed back across that big river again, and back to our own special home-for-now at Bayou Segnette State Park.
Tomorrow - more adventures planned!
