We are so lucky to live a decently short drive to the Land of Enchantment. We often can take a weekend and get lost in the drive there, which takes about 5 hours.
Typically we go to Santa Fe because it's I-40 most of the way, but from time to time there is no better place for a hippy hipster to visit than Taos. There are many very cool places to stay and this time we chose The Historic Taos Inn with the famous Doc Martin's Bar
We considered the El Monte, but truthfully it is the place to stay when the leaves are turning and there is a winter chill in the air...but of course you simply must have a cocktail at
The Anaconda Bar (can you see that brass scaled snake?)
the Anaconda bar is at
We always stop in to light a candle at the
and pop into Two Graces Art Gallery where this time I could not pass up a piece of fabric...Mr. PV was a little surprised that this was my "purchase" of the trip. Actually, I left the fabric behind and it haunted me until I contacted Robert and Holly and had them ship it to me a few days later.
What I couldn't forget, is the story that Robert told me about the fabric, how long he'd had it, that he purchased it in Boston and about the man who created it. I loved the story and the history and the color of the print block was incredible.
so here I am....I have had two large pillows made for my sofa with enough fabric left over to do something fantastic with. I am thinking I will take a large square and frame it under glass...and if I have enough after that I will have Mr. PV a vest made to go with his bolo...j/k...or maybe I'm not???
