En La Casa #1

When Mr. Fry and I designed our home, it was to showcase items we have collected in our travels. As an ongoing regular feature, I'll be sharing photos of some of these items. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Talavera ceramic lizard and papier mâché Virgin of Guadalupe from Mexico. The candlesticks are branding irons; one of the bases is the outline of the state of Texas, the other is a cactus.

The lizard looks like he's about to smile.
Branding iron candlesticks? Hmm, maybe next time Poco's misbehaving you can remind him that you are prepared to brand him yourself!

Funny you should say that. Poco was a working horse in a former life, ridden hard. A rancher I know suggested I get a pair of jingly spurs for the same reason.

That's really neat that you designed your house for that.

I hope someday to be able to do something similar.
