This is a very pretty, one of a kind, little Valentine made of a reprinted Mexican newspaper, filled with a soft cotton and then embroidered with red yarn along the edge. It’s been embellished with a photo of Frida Kahlo and some lovely gold designs. This is the only one left in red but I also have one in pink, green and black. But, sadly that’s it! I can’t locate the artisan who made these. They were made in the US but they have the right Mexican feel, don’t you think?
They are $13.50 each and can be found right here. Free local pickup in the Twin Cities!
Well, if you’re looking for some Mexican folk art for that special Valentine, take a look at these. These bottles are handmade in Oaxaca. The photos only show the Guadalupe bottles but we also have Frida, so don’t despair! Every one is different but every one is filled all the way around the bottle with sparkle, glitter, images of either Frida Kahlo or the Virgin de Guadalupe. They are fun to stare at. I have two on my desk and I love the color and the unique combination of dibs and dabs…
They are available right here.
