Souvenirs of Mexico

Sarah and I did do some shopping, but not GREAT amounts. We got some presents for people and then we got a couple things for ourselves. (The fact that our luggage was already STUFFED might have had something to do with it!)

She decided she wanted one of these clay containers for her room. There were so many shapes and sizes and colors but we were both drawn to this one.

I got this painting - there were also many sizes and different patterns, but I liked all the different houses and landscape. I hope to have this framed soon.

Then we both got these. Each night around the pool, they had tables set up with different crafts people and items. All really neat stuff. It changed every night, so we were glad to see this man back on the last night. He takes coins from all different countries and saws them! Yes with a little drill and vice and saw - he was doing it right there. It was so cool! Then he puts them on adjustable cords for a necklace or on a keychain. So Sarah got a mexican coin with her initial and I got a Canadian penny.

Wasn't it nice of him to have one that was my birth year? Yeah I know - don't laugh too hard.
