Red, White and Frida all Over

November 5th

Working Frida

Yesterday I received another pretty incredible stroke of kindness from the craft world. KatyRenee had a contest a while back on her blog and I won. I was able to select an image and she said she’d whip something up for me. Of course, I looked to my creative idol — Ms. Kahlo.

So happy with my new Frida fabulousness

Why yes, I am in love. Thank you Katy!

To see why Frida inspires me, check out some of these images. I have tentative plans to spend some time in San Miguel de Allende with mi amigita Alma next Fall visiting Frida’s studio. Holy guacamole, that would be the trip of a lifetime. Frida’s story, and many others, do make me believe that many great artists often find inspiration from tragedy. Thankfully, I admire their work in my sphere of happiness (while wearing awesome accessories.)

    I love San Miguel de Allende. I spend a week or so there way back in 1996! You should definately go. GO!

    Another Frida place worth a visit, but not really near San Miguel de Allende is La Casa Azul, Museo Frida Kahlo in Coyoacan (a Mexico City suburb). It’s the house where she lived with Diego Rivera for 25 years. It has a small selection of her own artwork, plus artifacts she collected, other pieces from her life.

  9. Totally cool necklaces.

  10. Maybe the necklace will provide added inspiration. Did you know November was national novel writing month?
