Welcome to the American Made Brand Blog Tour!

Thanks for visiting Louisiana!  We are excited to have you and hope you enjoy your visit to "The Pelican State."  Louisiana earned it's statehood in April 30, 1812 and is the only state to govern using the French Napoleonic Law: the reason we have parishes rather than counties.

Art in BloomMany people think of New Orleans when they think of Louisiana, and that certainly is reasonable when one considers the impact NOLA has on our economy, history, culture and lives.  But there is much, much more to our state. Let's travel from city to city for a glimpse of the culture and traditions of the magnolia state.

Art in BloomLouisiana has a predominately Catholic community in the southern parishes, myself included.  I can't imagine going to New Orleans without visiting or attending mass at St. Louis Cathedral.  Within walking distance of the cathedral are the French Market, Cafe du Monde, and the Riverfront. Plan to spend most of the morning in the downtown area for beignets and shopping and strolling.

Of course, there's the French Quarters with its party atmosphere, music, and delicious alcoholic concoctions.  Be warned!  A hurricane (and every other drink) is potent.  Every sip has consequences.


Have children in your party?  Take them on a street car ride to the Audubon Zoo, but don't forget the Aquarium, IMAX, Insecterium, New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) and WWII Museum.  All are filled with interesting, fun activities and history.  Like the weird?  Voodoo and cemeteries are a big draw.  I could go on, but we need to move on.  To represent NOLA, I included the Mercedes Benz Superdome because so many people visit.


Baton Rouge is next on our route.  The Louisiana State Capitol is a definite stop.  On my license plate it's the tall, pointed building.  I have memories of searching the tree line for the first glimpse of the Capitol as we drove into BR when I was a child.  It is the tallest state capitol in the union, a point of pride for Louisianans. Visit Baton Rouge is a good place to do some searching if you're planning a trip.  The zoo is awesome and there's lots of shopping at the Mall of Louisiana.  Do yourself a favor and visit River Road plantations and the LSU Rural Life Museum.  


Lafayette is city of cajun French culture.  Visit Acadian Village...like the Rural Life Museum in BR, it has a collection of historical buildings.  Architecture is important to Louisiana's history and culture.  Mardi Gras is a huge festival in Lafayette but with a family friendly atmosphere. Swamp tours, food, history, festivals, and friendly people are all attractions that draw people to Lafayette.  You definitely want to go to a Zydeco concert.

I would not do my state justice if I left out our swamps.  Louisiana has swamps in every section of the state, including the northernmost parishes. Of course, swamps are far apart in the north, but it's interesting to travel along the interstate in pine woods and hills and suddenly there's a small swamp of cypress trees, moss, and lily pads.  


Biedenharn Museum & GardensAnd speaking of the northern parishes, there are two cities that I must mention: Shreveport in the west and Monroe in the east. In Shreveport there's the Boardwalk for shopping; riverboat casinos; golfing, fishing and outdoor activities; and beautiful public gardens.  Monroe has parks, gardens, a zoo, and outdoor attractions.  Of course, Duck Commander is located here, but you know that from Duck Dynasty.  

Between these Louisiana cities are lakes, woods, small towns and interesting historical places, such as Poverty Point.  Louisiana has too many things to do it justice; I can only hope that my license plate gives one a sense of the beauty, culture and people of Louisiana.  



Don't forget to visit Olive and Ollie to see the Ohio license plate.  It debuts today, also.  But before you go, enter to win the giveaways.  First place is a set of eight fat quarters from the American Made Brand by Clothworks.  AMB will send the fabric once I choose a winner and contact them with your info, so make sure I have an email address for contacting you.  The second prize is a small fleur de lis wall hanging that I made a few weeks ago specifically for this giveaway.  Again, leave an email address.

How to enter?  Couple of ways actually:

  1.  follow my blog and leave a comment telling how you follow
  2. like my Facebook page and leave a comment saying you did
  3. share the American Made Brand website and leave a comment telling us how you shared.  Click here and scroll to the very bottom for a list of ways to share, such as FB, Pinterest, Twitter and so on
  4. leave a comment telling where in Louisiana you have or would like to visit
Each comment is a opportunity to win.  I'll choose a winner on Thursday, June 5.  Must have a U.S. address to win.  You can come back as often as you'd like to re-enter.  Now, hurry, go visit Olive and Ollie...Heather would love to see you!

Hi Mary from NY. I like all that you represented in your block. It will look great with all the other blocks in the final quilt.

Betsy said...

I like these tours. I think the blocks will look awesome together as a quilt.

Lisa Marie said...

Our son moved to LA a couple years ago and lives just outside New Orleans so we have been there many times. We've also been to some of the surrounding areas. The Zydeco Breakfast at Cafe Des Amis in Breaux Bridge was a fun and unique experience. And the Christmas Eve bonfires in Gramercy are something to see as well.

I made my first trip to Louisiana and NOLA just last month. We only had a day and a half in NOLA, but we made the most of it, including beignets at Café du Monde, the French Market and Bourbon Street. We'll definitely be back to see more. Thanks for a tour of the state.

I've been to New Orleans multiple times - what a fun city! And my husband has been gambling in Shreveport before too. :)

Sandra said...

I was raised in Jamestown, CA. The famous train #3 is across the street from my parent's house. This is the train that was used in movies and you can now take a tour and take a ride on this train. I moved to Sonora, which is about 5 miles from Jamestown. This is called the foothills. San Francisco is about 2 1/2 hours away. The Golden Gate and the Bay Area Bridges are very famous bridges as well as the Fisherman's Wharf. Thank you for being a part of the AMB Blog Tour and giving all of us a chance to win those American Made Fabrics. I think of New Orleans and have always wanted to go there and just party like crazy. Just relax and have a good time.

Thanks for the tour from my easy chair.....

Pam said...

I have been to Louisiana in my younger days doing road construction. :D Tried my first Mint Julip and whoa was that powerful. No wonder those southern ladies wanted it to sit in the shade and fan themselves, they couldn't move afterwards!

I want to go back and visit New Orleans and sit at Cafe Du Monde and just watch the world go by for awhile. :)
