Burgundy Fleur de lis Ornament

The fleur de lis has a rich history dating all the way to 493 and King Clovis I. It is a beloved symbol here in Louisiana and one visiting the state will find it everywhere, from stickers on car windows, embroidered on purses and clothing to beautiful pieces of jewelry and everything in between. It’s the official symbol of our New Orleans Saints and on July 9th, 2008, Governor Bobby Jindal, signed a bill making the fleur de lis our official symbol of Louisiana.

My collection of fleur de lis ornaments will be growing between now and Christmas, so check in to see what’s new.
