Mexican Giftspiration

We just spent the last week in Cancun – aka – paradise (see pic above)!  Needless to say, I am a bit depressed to be back, so what better way to cure depression then with SHOPPING! 🙂

While in Mexico, we hit up a few of the local pottery stores to purchase souvenirs, gifts for the kids, etc.  I ended up with two little bowls for myself (second row-second pic from the left).  Now that we are home, I really regret not getting more!

Hand painted Mexican pottery is called Talavera , and the colors and patterns are GORGEOUS!

I did some digging, and there are a few good sites to buy Talavera (without the cost of a trip to Mexico).

Here are a few of my favorites:
