Ceramics from yesteryear
The Virgen de Guadalupe, milagros, sacred hearts and images are all artistic motifs used in Mexican folk art in every state in Mexico.
The Christmas decorations of Mexico vary by region but are always colorful and festive whether made of tin, paper, wood, textiles or clay.
"Milagro"means "miracle" in Spanish. Milagros are religious charms that are prevalent throughout Mexico and are used to request or thank God for a miracle.

These lovely, faded and soft textiles hail from the Ivory Coast. I purchased them on my trip to the International Folk Art Festival this summer. They are indigo dyed strips of hand spun cotton attached to each other with hand stitching in a brighter color to make a lovely throw, tablecloth or wrap. Such a beautiful and subtle interplay between the color palettes of indigo and orange or pink. They are used, so they are slightly faded, may have irregularities and mending. Use to make pillows, cover a lampshade, on the back of a couch or as a bed runner. Enjoy!
