Exit South, to Georgia Morel's...Post Haste.
Here in the Midwest we’re in the throws a miserable ice and snow storm. But, not Georgia Morel. She’s from New Roads, Louisiana. A Google search will take you to her family’s restaurant’s website, and believe me you’ll drool when you read the menu. Make sure you check out their inn with its amazing gardens. And then, of course, you’ll have to click on the link to Georgia’s antiques shops…yes, shops. She has five of them, four in Louisiana and one in Texas. You’ll enjoy browsing through the photos of her inventory. She has a very refined “eye” and has created a sophisticated look, which she calls, an “eclectic mix”. It’s an impressive blend of French, industrial, architectural and garden. Very cool stuff. These photos will give you an idea of what you can expect to see in her booth at Music Valley this month.
So, as I sit here putting this together, looking out at the ice and snow, I find myself daydreaming about sitting in the warm sun, at the Morel Family Inn, looking out at the water. I have to say, I’m fighting the urge to drive south for a visit…today…oh yeah, great antiques, sunshine, and an oyster po’boy. I can be packed in 5 minutes.
