San Angel

Hello there! Well, the day before yesterday my sister, my mother, and I went to a place here in Mexico City that is called San Angel. It is a big market where lots of artisans sell their products. There's a huge variety of things that you can find. From the symbols and figures of Nayarit, to knitted plush. There are also many Mexican food restaurants. This time we decided to eat some quesadillas at a stand that was near the street. (they were delicious) Here are some pictures of the things we saw at the market.                            This men was called Manuel, he made all the figures and also his clothes! He had a great sense of humor, he even laughed with my mom's jokes. This guitar was amazing, the man who made it said it has more than 100 recycled parts.  As I told you, there were also this kind of things around the market, It was a small piece of cuteness between all the mexican clothes and talavera plates. (That tree was just too cute, you can imagine who bought it...)Pure embroidery. We wanted to buy it, but, just try to guess the prize. 
(That's my sister and my mom:)
Well, there were several things that I loved, my mom was really happy, also my sister. Mom bought a molcajete for the kitchen, it is a kind of plate made of stone in which you can make different sauces. It was really heavy, though. We had to take turns in order to take it to the car. We had a great day, the climate was great, the market was not so full of people, and after some hours we arrived home and played with Remi for a little while. I really hope you liked the pictures, it would be awesome if you could come and visit the market someday!

Oh, I almost forget to tell you, I'm in process of changing some things in my room, I'll post about it later. Also, I found a gorgeous book I would like to share with you, I guess that's it for now, lots of love, Monica.


Hi there! Well, between some of the things I did while I was not posting, this mural is an important one. I have always loved to paint over walls, I believe that mostly all of us as children painted something at least on one wall, many parents tell their children not to do that, but, hopefully for me, they say there's no problem with it at all.
I like to write and draw on walls, because, somehow thoughts and ideas that you draw on them, stay there for a long time, and they're always at sight. Many of the drawings are just doodles, but most of them have a meaning, my life is a bit messy, as you can see. (lots of ideas all over the place.)
I haven't finished it jet, I hope to fill the wall on the upcoming vacations! (Of course I'll share with you the pictures once it is finished:)
And what about you? Do you like having or making murals? or do you prefer paintings? I have a kind of mixture between them. I guess balance is always good. I really hope you liked my mural. Have an awesome day, lots of love, Monica.
