Allrightee, my ever faithful blog readers. I have completely neglected the blog lately because I've been down in Oaxaca Mexico these last two weeks working with Jill Cardinal our our art making tour. Let's just say, doing a tour is all consuming and Oaxaca is pretty all consuming too. I'm feeling a little schizophrenic lately. Chez Passionflower, Easter brunch is on it's way ,the wheat grass is sprouting and we've got new linens and candles and all manners of wonderful things to celebrate rebirth and the coming of spring . And down in Oaxaca, Easter is coming and there is all kinds of somber processions and flagellations and it's hot and noisy. I love both these worlds and haven't quite figured out how they go together or if they even do.
Which is why I thought I'd share this picture of the lovely Beckster with you. Becky feels like the face of Passionflower and here she's wearing an apron called a mandile that many of the indigenous women wear in Oaxaca. So it's a little like the two worlds coming together. I've fallen in love with indigenous crafts and textiles and am planning on bringing some back and having a little textile sale on First Friday in April - which is one way I'm trying to bring these two loves of mine together. I'll have quite a few of these aprons and some super cute ones for little girls. Plus other goodies too. Hope you'll be able to join us. And in the meantime, if you're looking for spring inspiration, come visit the store.
