Temporary Artwork–Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge

My sister and I happened upon these works of art in front of a small neighborhood church in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and we were intrigued with the artistry and technique that went into making these colored sawdust scenes. Amazingly, they were made one day, and the next day they were gone! Sidewalks swept, cleaned, and… Continue reading Temporary Artwork–Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge

Christmas Greetings from San Miguel de Allende

I am celebrating Christmas in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and caught the sunlit cross atop the Parroquia De San Miguel Arcangel mid-day Christmas Eve.  And this evening the star atop the Christmas Tree was burning bright as was the cross on the church steeple. The majesty of the church in the center of town draws visitors and… Continue reading Christmas Greetings from San Miguel de Allende
