We've been gone for a little over a week, but we are back home now. We took a trip up to Santa Fe and then to Durango, Colorado. It was a lot of fun!
I hadn't been to either town, which was good... I love exploring new places.
Santa Fe was more of just a stop over. We were there for only one night, but we showed up on just the right weekend. It was the last day for the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market. The boys humored me (E, a little more reluctantly than the Pirate or the Farmboy) and we spent half of the day there, before moving on to Colorado.
Here are a few photos of the Market. Everything was so colorful and festive. Each booth represented a different country. And the work of all of these people were simply amazing!
And this was what I purchased... love it! We met the artist, Claudio Jimenez Qiospe. He is from the Republic of Peru. Amazing work!
Santa Fe is where I stopped taking photos. I LOVED it there! I loved everything about it... the desert, the adobe and stucco, the people. I would fit in perfectly there. Unfortunately, the Farmboy and I don't see eye to eye on Santa Fe. He is from Colorado originally and the mountains are what he loves. Retirement time may be an issue for us.... we'll see. ;)
Please bear with me, I am SO far behind on reading everyone's blogs and you three ladies, whom I owe a little handmade something too, they are going in the mail this week... I promise!
Have a beautiful Monday!
