Treasures from Mexico

Hello Peeps! I promised you some more pictures from Mexico, so here I am....( for those of you who've had enough of my posts about Mexico; I promise you, this is my last one until I make another trip there:)).

Mexican handicrafts include a variety of things ranging from pottery, handmade baskets and hats, woven blankets, wooden toys and masks, beads and gems, silver jewelery...the list goes on. What really left me salivating though,was the bold and bright colored pottery with intricate detailing. I just couldn't get enough of it. If it wasn't for the airline baggage policy, and then my budget constraints, my bags would be full of it.

I loved shopping at Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue), the local market in Playa del Carmen near Cancun. The street itself looked so vibrant and colorful.

Plates and bowls

Close up of a wall plate- loved the intricate design!

Mirrors with Mexican tile borders

Colorful Suns

Platters and Trays

Gorgeous Sinks!... wish I could get one of these....


Now, about the treasures that I brought back home....

A man sitting with his head hidden behind his hat.....he sits on my side table now.

A wooden mask....

A handwoven, colorful straw bag....

I'm using it as a basket to store my stash of handmade paper!

There are a few other things that are yet to find a good place in my home, one of them is the colorful sun- I always thought that I HAVE to get a 'Sun' whenever I go to Mexico, and so I did:)

For some more pictures from Mexico, visit Sharkara's blog...yes, we went there together.
