We just listed this awesome property at 13509 Plantation Pl, just south of Abbeville near Mouton Cove (70510). This home has been totally redone after hurricane Rita from top to bottom, it has been elevated 2 feet above the minimum elevation, and it has top of the line hurricane shutters on all doors and windows. It is move-in ready and has so much to offer... The home, which would also make a great camp for people who hunt down south in Vermilion parish, features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, large living, dinning area and great kitchen with lots of cabinets and built-in wine cooler.   The home sits on a corner lot (0.6 acre) and is surrounded by woods. From the porch or the patio, you cannot see any neighbors. And as a bonus, a hot tub next to the house (also elevated) where you can relax afte...

If you've been following my blog, you know I love this event! The Giant Omelette Celebration in Abbeville, LA is always lots of fun for the whole family and I try to make it with my daughter every year, at least the Sunday afternoon when they do the cooking.  This is the skillet in the middle of the street in downtown Abbeville last year. The weather was just perfect! When the Giant Omelette Celebration began, they used 5000 eggs. Since then, they've added one egg every year and this year, there will be 5027 eggs in the omelette along with some 52 pounds of butter, among other things! Yum! The procession of chefs is very nice with all the flags from the different areas where they are from. This is truly an international event. They also have this celebration is the following cities: Bes...

This place was screaming for a picture. This is the Depot Gift Shop and Train Museum on Lafayette Street in Abbeville. There is so much going on in the little side yard. I really love the way the picture turned out after I spent a little bit of time playing with it. Most of this was achieved with an app called "Dynamic Light" for iPad and now available for Mac computers. I had lots of fun with this one! Originally Posted at: Lafayette Real Estate News

Yes, it is a real car up in the tree. This car has been there for as long as I can remember (15+years). My husband says that there used to be another car in that tree when he was a child. Why they keep putting cars in the tree, I'm not sure. To make people talk, perhaps? I was tempted to say "only in Louisiana" but I'm sure there are other cars in trees somewhere. If you want to see the car in the tree for yourself, it is on Hwy 82, just north of Abbeville. Originally Posted at: Lafayette Real Estate News

If you are looking for property in Vermilion parish to build a nice home, you need to consider Bayou Marron Subdivision just south of Abbeville and about 5 minutes from downtown. Located off of S. Henry, Bayou Marron is a small oasis filled with mature trees along Coulee Kinney and just a few feet away from the Vermilion River. One of the lots I just listed (above) has water frontage and is .65 acre. It is available for $30,000. The lot next to it is also available. It is .81 acre and listed for $14,000. These two lots are on Rue de Bayou, near the cul-de-sac. I also listed 3 lots on Avenue des Chenes, the other street in Bayou Marron. These lots are about 1/2 acre each and are available for $18,000. If you are a builder, the seller is willing to negotiate a great deal on all five lots....

The Giant Omelette Celebration 2011 edition is this weekend in Abbeville, November 5th and 6th. This is a great family two-day event held in Magdaline square and downtown Abbeville. The cooking of the giant omelette is Sunday but there are activities on both days: live music, arts and crafts fair, antique tractor "Egg Cracking" competition (Saturday) and an antique car show (Sunday). For a full list of events, visit the Giant Omelette Celebration site. This is the skillet used to cook the 5000-egg omelette. Yes, 5000+! This picture is from 2009 as I wasn't able to attend last year's celebration. I will be there Sunday this year for the cooking (and eating) of the omelette.

I mean there literally is a safe on the street in Abbeville, LA. Well, not exactly on the street... it is on the sidewalk.   I'm not sure what the meaning of it is or if it is even being used but for some reason, I had never noticed it before. It sits on N. State St. in front of Comeaux Café, which is across the street from the Sheriff's department and the Abbeville Court House. I was there for a few minutes this week to pick up a plat at the Clerk of Court's office and I just happened to park right next to the safe. P.S. The plat I was picking up was for one of my listings that went under contract in 9 days. If you are thinking about selling your home, contact me today!

The 25th edition of the Giant Omelette Celebration was a success this past weekend in Abbeville, LA. There was some rain in the forecast but it stayed at bay long enough for thousands to enjoy good music, good food, and of course, a taste (or two) of the omelette. Below are a few pictures I took yesterday in downtown Abbeville. This is all the chefs getting together for a photo op before the cooking started. The preparation of an omelette with 5,025 eggs in it also requires lots of butter, 52 pounds to be exact. It also requires 50 pounds of onions, 75 bell peppers, 4 gallons of onion tops and 2 gallons of parsley among other ingredients. Since the celebration began 25 years ago, they add one egg to the recipe every year, which is why there are now 5025 eggs in the omelette. The chefs t...

The Giant Omelette Celebration is going on this weekend in Abbeville. If you've never seen a giant omelette, just imagine a 12-foot skillet with 5,025 eggs in it. Quite impressive, to say the least. There was a kick-off party Thursday night in the park downtown Abbeville and I was invited to play the T-Fer (triangle) with a couple of my friends (traditional Cajun music). That was a lot of fun! Here's the schedule for the remainder of the weekend. For more information, visit the Giant Omelette Celebration website. SATURDAY NOVEMBER 9TH, 2009 9:00 - 5:00 Antique Implement viewing 10:00 - 4:00 Historic Tour of Homes 9:00 - 5:00 Arts & Crafts Show 10:00 - 5:00 Kids World 2:00 - 5:00 - Al Berard Family Ban 5:00 p.m. Festival Closes - See you tomorrow SUNDAY NOVEMBER 8th, 2009 9:00 Giant Omel...
