Me encanta nuestros tesoros mexicanos!!!

yay, happy friday everyone! i am very appreciative that this week went by really fast!

every time you go to mexico you have to come back with some kind of treasure...it is just necessary. it is always one of my favorite things about visiting a place. bringing treasure back home and weaving them into my life always make the trip last forever.

what i love about mexican art and crafts are the vibrant colors and the designs.  every time i go there are 3 things that need to be bought. 1) a mexican blanket for the mister...2) some type of embroidered textile for me and 3) a cross and we accomplished these things this trip! here is what we took back to our little casa...


 the mister found this really awesome mexican blanket. we both love the design and the colors....i am so in love with the little birds in this design! these thick blankets are our favorite to take to the beach or park and fit perfectly on our bikes all rolled up...


i fell in love with these embroidered purses that they had. it was so hard to pick one because they were all so beautiful! i decided that the larger one would be nice as i don't have a big bag this size and it was nice to have another bag to use for my commute each day!


while in tulum we saw this really cute little cross! we have several mexican crosses scattered throughout the house but this is a different style plus it has the bowl for holy water which we both really liked! now to go to lourdes, france to get some holy water!


this was my last purchase which happened to me at the cancun airport...i am a huge fan of the dia de los muertos art and just had to have them!

hope you all have a great weekend!! i have a very exciting weekend....a visit from my nephew and sister in law, our park is having a dia de los muertos art exhibit inside the mansion, pumpkin carving and craft making! lots and lots to share with you all next week!

i always love october!

  3. That's a great bag!! I also love blankets from Mexico, they're so tough and rugged, mine has lasted through 15 years of different usses and still looks new.

  6. Ahh we have almost matching sugar skull earrings, and I have a similar-but-mini version of that purse too! ;) I love that blanket as well! One of the first times my family went to Baja, my mom bought a blanket from a guy near our campsite for like $20, and when we went into town, they were selling them for $5! Doh! ;)
