An addition to my collections

Here's the latest...... It's a fabulous assemblage by Anado McLauchin who has that wonderful quirky house covered in tiles that the tour group visited while in San Miguel. I have loved this piece for several years since I first saw it. It's one of those things that each time you stand and look at it you see different things.

There are old milagros, carnelian beads, a flying angel, all kinds of dolls and statues. The piece de resistance is the Venetian mask that is the centerpiece.

Of course when I put it in the house, it necessitated my moving all kinds of things around to make sure that this piece took center stage. It is surrounded by face jugs from the Carolinas and an old paper mache monkey that I have had for about 20 years.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

i've been reading your blog for a few months, and enjoying it very much. i've been to sma five times in the last nine years. & will probably go there at least once a year. when not there i read all the blogs and forums. i'm happy to have found yours via billie's list.

Truly a GREAT piece. Looks rather like a three dimensioned Frida painting. Good eye young lady!
