Kiss My Grits


Girls Raised In The South is a copyrighted phrase and use of it must be by approval. I ran into this problem early on in designing t-shirts because I have many designs of GRITS but not the one that is copyrighted, just I like GRITS for breakfast. The company with the copyright then objected to my use of GRITS until I squarked back that I had GRITS on my shirts and bibs since childhood. Finally my I Love Grits, and Grits are for lovers shirts were OK. So I say Just Kiss My Grits-

Blue Letter Street Tiles In News

A news story appeared in the New Orleans newpaper about the old blue letter street tiles and others who make replicas but no mention of Fig Street Studio who has had them for 8 years.


Sold on the web for the past 8 years, replica blue letter street name tile, letters and numbers several designs see them and other street signs at http://www.cafepress.com/figstreetstudio/434932
Tiles, magnets, stickers with the individual letters and the big tile murals found in the French Quarter.

For the history of these replica tiles and the original tiles read: http://blogofbingo.blogspot.com/2006/05/new-orleans-street-tiles.html

Ceramic measuring 4.25” x 4.25” and 1/6-inch thick. Images are applied with a polyester resin that accepts dye as part of the coating and heat set onto the ceramic. Blue Letter Tiles Link








Spanish Tile Street Name Mural Replicas



Quote about the tiles in New York Times-
"One of the most effective methods of designating streets that I have seen is that used in New Orleans. It consists of blue tiles four by six inches and three-quarter inch thick on each of which is a five-inch letter of the alphabet in white. . . . These not only present a neat appearance, but are large enough to be read without difficulty. -- Albert E. Davis of the Bronx, N.Y., in a Dec. 3, 1913, in a letter to the editor of The New York Times."

Nostalgic Pontchartrain Beach Gifts


Many Pontchartrain Beach gifts sold at Fig Street Studio-http://www.cafepress.com/figstreetstudio/455870. Pontchartrain Beach amusement park was located in New Orleans, Louisiana, near the University of New Orleans on the shore of Lake Pontchartrain. It opened in 1928, across Bayou St. John from the existing resort at Old Spanish Fort. In 1930s, as part of the lake shore was filled in and a seawall built, Pontchartrain Beach was moved to a new location at the lake end of Elysian Fields Avenue, then closed in 1984. To remember it I have designed many gifts, see the links at http://www.zazzle.com/figstreetstudio/pontchartrain+gifts and below.

Pontchartrain Rum Runners Shirts http://ping.fm/X5X9i #nola

Pontchartrain Rum Runners Shirt

My late Uncle Joe told a story of how he used to run rum from Cuba to Lake Pontchartrain during prohibition, history bears this story out as a few family members did get arrested. I did a shirt to remember that story by.
To some Uncle Joe was a character but to me an adventurer. He was always telling stories of places he had been and things he did. He was able to pilot boats in the Great Lakes, Inland Waters and Caribbean. He never stopped seeking adventure even in books that he would share with me. He would give me books on Navigation, Astronomy and Chess. Teach me how to keep a ship in ship shape and many chores he had to do as charter captain. Often I would ride my bike to West End Park to vi st him on his boat. He spent the last few years of his life living with us still telling stories of pirates and run runners.

Philadelphia Museum Poster

I am planning my day here in Philadelphia seeing what museum to attend. Several line a grand boluvard. Art, science and more displays even a Star Trek history. Hope the rain holds out.

Jazz Fest Post Card

As I travel around this summer I have had the pleasure of attending little local Jazz Fests in many spots along the East Coast. Art, music, good food are presented in small local communities or neighborhoods in larger cities. It will be nice when I arrive in the Finger Lakes to see if there are wineries with music too.
