Hey, Hey…Santa Fe!

I  LOVED Santa Fe!  What an incredibly beautiful city!  I loved everything about it…the adobe style houses, the markets, the Galleries, the Santa Fe Plaza, the architecture, the miles and miles of jewellery and bead shops…If you want a little tour then keep reading…if not…I’ll see you tomorrow..I hope!

This is in the heart of the Plaza…where local artisan spread out their blankets and sell their wares…gorgeous stuff!

I love wreathes of any kinds – but these were hot and spicy!!  I REALLY wanted one of these but it is a food item and it would kill me if the Canadian Customs person confiscated it…can’t you see me on my knees begging the Custom’s man to PLEASE return the pepper wreath…!!  It was not to be…but aren’t they pretty?

P1070361 - Copy  Isn’t this wreath incredible…each angel is hand carved…I didn’t ask how much this wreath was as one angel was selling for $22.50!P1070364 - Copy South American Quilts..starting at $350…very beautiful and worth every penny!!
