Feather picture

Making pictures from feathers
is a Mexican art. These pictures remind us that the Aztecs made beautiful capes from feathers.

This miniature picture is in Abuela's room.
I collected this handmade fan in a display case from the estate of a collector in Santa Monica California.
The bedroom furniture and the Star Co. antiques came from the same collector.

Carolena and Charlotta spent many hours with Abuela in her room. Abuela did all the sewing for the Hacienda and made a new dress for Charlotta who was growing taller every day.
