What are we going to do?

Shit! – after a month in San Miguel de Allende, we are moving out of the casa in a couple of days and Lola has taken her creative projects to new heights and has decorated the fence – and the interiors. Those of you who know Lola well, will know that she is fond of a little trinket shopping and so she has been indulging that, and breaking few plates and downing a few bottles of wine and alora!- this is the result.


Is that a tractor tyre?

A couple of weeks ago her projects were just a couple of strong of beads  – but it has got WAY out of hand!

By the way…. what is that red orange protrusion on the man? She says it is a candlestick she found in a small tienda. Ok….  Did it have to go there?

Really this has gone to extremes!.

How many happy hours went into collecting those wine bottles? I know we only spend less than $10NZ on a bottle of Chilean Sav Blanc… but still….
We’ve added a few extra nick-nacks to the lounge. That’s the Virgin of Guadalupe on the coffee table.

Ok – I am stretching the truth a bit. We have met a man – let’s call him Anado and this is his casa/studio and chapel – the chapel Jimmy Ray – in memory of his father, He is also a collector of “bits and pieces” and glass and broken plates and he makes them into beautiful art on the outskirts of San Miguel. We went for a visit.

This is the author standing outside his composting toilet… looking to rival Freidrich Hundertwasser!
The sister of this wondrous sculpture is at the Jagged Edge House in Queenstown.

The ‘not so zen’ interior of his house…

An eclectic compilation
A skeleton and some hearts… the rest is up to you.

Just another great day in vibrant and interesting Mexico!
