Wall hangings

I picked up 2 of the white and brown wall hangings when I was living in Jocotepec a few years ago. I had a large rental with a few nails in the walls so they did hang for awhile. Since I've been back on the beach they've been rolled up in a closet.  Why the delay to hang things here I'm not sure.   Part is deciding what goes where or even if it should at all.   Also has something to do with commitment to the house, length of time I'll likely be here and not treating it like another rental.

Then there are the 4 coco-head "dolls" I found at a garage sale last August.    They could have been grouped anywhere but better in a small space.   They might fit that front room a little better with some furniture. Hanging them was fun because I forgot the originally planned large window had a lot of cement around it. Ended up both drilling and using nails (cement) .... but there they are. I included the older picture on the bottom because they are really better close up.

Next up will be my attempt to freshen up my Equipale (leather) furniture. I bought some saddle soap (Jabon de Calabaza) but there are differing opinions.  Think it has to do with the type and quality of the hide?

Shortly after I bought the 4 of them


The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
