Hello from San Antonio, Texas. We have been here for the past few days and have been enjoying the local culture and events. I have completely fallen in love with the Mexican artwork. I have always had a fascination with "Day of the Dead" art and we seem to see it everywhere here. I bought a wonderful "outsider" cross yesterday from a Mexican artist in this shop. I picked up several more and plan on doing a grouping of them in my studio at home.
We visited "Riverwalk" which was fun, but a little touristy and checked out a few antique shops. I purchased lots of old lace and neat fabrics at one booth. I went back today for a second look around and found more! The booth is called "Linda loves Lace" and I spent quite some time browsing through and talking with Linda. I love these kind of places that are off the beaten path. We plan on visiting a big flea market tomorrow, but since I have family with me, it will probably be a quick look around. I am continuing to check my email daily, so if you have any questions or comments, I will try to respond. Hope everyone has a great weekend. I am anxious to get back home and make some new birds and assemblages with the new things I have found!
