deco mayo



One of the things that brings a tiny bit of joy to my heart every time I pass it is the old Blue Plate Mayonnaise building. It's not far from where I live now and even nearer to where I used to live. Although abandoned now and looking kind of rough around the edges since Katrina, she's still got it.

She's a streamlined Art Deco beauty, with a slightly nautical feel...perfectly appropriate for mayonnaise production, of course.

I LOVE that building. I want to refurbish it and live in it. :)
