Bringing Mexico Home

Just before Christmas, my husband and I spent a week in Cancun.  We needed a break and my wonderful mother and mother-in-law teamed up to give us the amazing gift of some time away.  While I was there, I picked up a few hand made textiles for my home.  They were silly inexpensive, and now I'm kicking myself for not snagging more while I was there.  Ah well.  We had such a lovey time in Mexico that we wanted to infuse our master bedroom with some of that vacation feeling.  Please excuse my poor photography.

There was a woman on La Isla Mujeres - an island just off of Cancun point - selling hand embroidered bedspreads, table cloths and place mats.  I really wanted one of the larger pieces, but wasn't in a position to spend more than a few dollars.  So I bought two place mats instead and decided to frame them.  I love the bold color and whimsical animals. 

Here they are framed below my Lady of Gudalupe - a gift from a friend.

We're really pleased with the new Mexican vibe in our bedroom.  
All I need now are some party lights and a Negra Modelo.
