Romantic Louisiana

If you can find the August 1986 issue of the magazine "Country Living", it has several articles on "Romantic Louisiana." One I enjoyed was the article on "Acadian Textiles." It shows examples of blankets and linens woven by the Acadian women. There is also a picture of the type of shirt worn by the men. According to the article, one of the Acadian customs was for the mother to weave a lifetime supply of household linens for each of her daughters.

I'm coming to you from Montgomery, AL today. Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page to see a moss covered tree. This picture was taken last month in Bayou Gauche, by my great-niece, Delaine, who lives near Birmingham, AL.
