Hecho en Mexico

One of my favorite things about the Hacienda Dollhouse is all the beautifully made handcrafted miniatures. Here are the ones made of straw. Look how tiny the baskets are. I put the wooden guitar in for scale as it's mother of pearl inlayed back side is in a following picture.




Look at this little maroon footed basket.
This little pottery is so perfect and beautiful in color.








Here is the back of the guitar. Isn't it gorgeous? I love the little tin pitcher, strainer, pan and tortilla griddle. There is a wooden round jar with a lid, a perfect little granite looking corn grinding stone with pestle, and shallow dish. The last item in this picture is the wrought iron wash stand with clay glazed pitcher and bowl.

Maria, it is 2 level. Some of the lower level are the living room shots in earlier posts. The upper level is the bedroom in the "unpacking" post. C

This is delightful little collection. I especialy like the guitar and pottery-such fine detail and vivid colors. I look forward to your entry on the "Painted Lady" house. That house is what I think of when someone says quintessential San Francisco.

Thank you,someguy. Cute name. I am reading about life in Victorian times and it seems life was a little wilder and more experimental in San Francisco in 1890 than in England where most of the literature is based. Hmmm might be true today too? CM
