Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Let's head South of the Border today and take a look at some truly gorgeous Mexican antiques and collectibles.
 
European Spanish influences are strong in Mexican design and décor.  Noted for their warm colors and beautiful woods - cedar,  mesquite, and walnut - Hispanic antiques are unique, textural, and growing in popularity.

I hope you enjoyed today's post and will keep an eye out
for collectibles from our neighbors to the south west.
Before signing off I want to share a photo with
you that brings back lots of memories for me:
This is Maria - a souvenir doll given to me by my late Uncle Ted
when he was on a business trip to Mexico many (many!) years ago.

Thanks for stopping by.  Adios!
