¡Hola, dear Friends of Mexico Lindo! We're glad to be welcoming the arrival of May and still very excited about last months' Post Gazette article on the store. We would also be remiss if we didn't remind you about the significance of Cinco de Mayo, which is so often misunderstood. Our recent visit with Armando and Antonia Jiménez was a wonderful one and you can view the photo album from that on our Facebook page. The remainder of new animals that they brought which remain in the store are in the process of being made into pages for the site and we'll put on a notice of that on FB as soon as they are ready.
With Mothers' Day fast approaching, we have some great gift ideas for you: above, left: pink handbag with embroidered rosettes, $36. Center: Picture frames in pewter with natural flowers, $43, and in lacquered wood from Olinala, $42. Right: Mother Opossum with babies by Armando and Antonia Jiménez, $210. Below, left: mini 6" x 6" Huichol yarn painting of Father Sun, $60. Center: embroidered cotton runner with sunflowers and calla lillies, $65. Right: Otomi embroidered pillow: $45.
One can almost never go wrong in giving jewelry! Some very springtime-ish choices, below, left: sterling silver and enamel dragonfly earrings and pendant set in various colors, $38. Center: Huichol long necklace with florettes, $120. Right: sterling silver and enamel butterfly earrings and pendant set, $42.
