Creative Mexico

For Mexico Monday I've trolled through some photos from previous travels south.  The theme here is three dimensional creative work, both decorative and functional.  And Mexico excels at this.  These images come from our trip to Patzcuaro, a treasure trove of crafts made in surrounding villages.  Some specialize in clay, some in basketry, some in hammered copper, and some in wood carving and painting.  Well you can see for yourself the incredible creativity.











It's fun going back over some of the photos from our trips, especially since we'll be staying in Canada this winter.
 
Check out Deb's Mexico Monday for more images from Mexico.

  8. We used to go to Old Mexico at least once a month [we lived just an hour from the border]...but I don't think I'd want to go there any more because of the drug wars.

    Love your photo share, it brought back some good memories of bargaining with the proprietors and street vendors.
