Fiesta!!




Fiesta!!





OK, the party theme has changed to a traditional Southwestern one. I made some salsa on Wednesday so decided to mix up a pitcher of margueritas to serve with the blue corn chips and salsa. I sure love shooting for 7 Days of Shooting themes---it gives me a great excuse to indulge!

Almost everything featured has some meaning to me. The tequilla was a gift from some doctors visiting from Mexico. It's at least 15 years old and gets better with age. The marguerita glass was handpainted by a dear friend from my prior work. The plate was one of two I picked up in Puebla, Mexico in 1991.It usually hangs on my wall for decoration but I occasionally use it. The serape ((Mexican blanket) belonged to my husband's aunt (who has passed on) and we pull it out for Cinco de Mayo.

Salsa recipe coming up on Friday! Meanwhile, viva las tradiciones!

Cinco de Mayo Fiesta bead necklace worn





This shiny Cinco de Mayo faux Talavera glazed Pottery Fiesta Bead Necklace was made to honor Mexico. The green, white, and red beads represent the colors of the Mexican flag with the addition of yellow to represent the sun as I tried to capture the joy of the fiesta I remember as a child. The bead base is made from Sculpey Ultralight clay and covered with a veneer of polymer clay. The appliqued decorations are made from polymer clay and polymer clay canes and are applied one at a time. Then many thin layers of a water based clear varnish are applied to enhance the natural deep shine.
