I've got excited with this museum! to be true, i never expected to see prehispanic pieces, actually i thought that would be just Rufino Tamayo's paintings and to be true, i'm not a big fan of his artwork but i went waiting to see his art and then... well, is just his collection of prehispanic art, and to be true is just stunning! this is the story, after he became famous and his artworks was selling pretty well, he decided to rescue and buy prehispanic figures before the black market take advantage, so after adquire a big collection, he just decided donate everything to his hometown, Oaxaca... and after learning this, i seriously feel admiration of him!

So, there's a master on printing, living in his hometown, in a very small but cute town, where all their habitants are zapotecs as him... his studio is a small room full of his artworks and can invite to admire the simplicity of the space... in this studio i worked a little piece, totally improved but the results are what i just expected, and yes i drink a few little shots of mezcal

If i say that "a few years ago" would sound like was recently, but not, it was like 8 years or 9 since the last time i've went to Oaxaca for vacations, the first time i went it was so pretty! i looked everywhere and was so colorful and rich in history so hubby and I decided to take a break and go for vacations... so, i'll let you know that the next post will be just photos from it...
I'll show you a few of the prehispanic places that i just love them! the sun was up, very warm and bright but it was windy, walking in this places is like feeling some nostalgia about all this lost cultures...

I find myself in a total crush for miniatures! since my dad and my brother have a big heart of collector, it was so funny that in some way i didn't find attracted to collect something in particular but! i don't know why but... is so funny this feeling and sensation of miniature things! i really can't explain why, is some sort of fascination... i guess this is the kind of feeling of all the collectors, fascination!
And then i decided to took a photo of this miniatures and cute things.... but really really i want to keep them all! in some way i just like it! but then, a little reminder to not feel attach to material things... (because mom taught me..!)

Part of the reason to write this post is that i finally dare myself to do something that in some way scares me, or beyond of feel scared is more like i feel insecure.. I'm gonna explain it better, well, i encourage myself to learn english not with an language academy but myself, translating songs, books, phrases, and losing my fear to speak to someone who is native with the language, and of course english speakers won't mock me or bite be, because (or is what i think..) people celebrate the effort and enthusiasm on the learners.. After opening my etsy shop, the description of every item and things that i create is just a big task! seriously! and something that i love is vintage... VINTAGE 💖 clothes, shoes, everything vintage! i always wanted to sell something vintage, but then, the english issue! how i'm gonna describe something vintage!?, well, after so many time, i introduce to you, some of my latest treasures that i'm gonna sell on my etsy shop.. Yeah Sir!!!

i'm not considering myself as a bookworm, although i do really like to read, i don't have tons of books... but what i like books are just history and illustrated books!! gosh! i should study something with history, i'm pretty sure that my memory can work for it (weird thing i forgot tons of things but date, names and places not...), i'm telling you this, because i went recently to visit an old train station near to Gdl, and it was fascinating! the building is breath taking... it was restored, apparently it was abandoned after the station stop working, and then got a owner when the station was sold as a property, and of course because it was abandoned time wasn't kind with the building...
Now, it's works as a Cultural Center and Museum, it feels some chills looking into this area, the old photos and seeing some of the furniture used in this train station... and then this is why i love old buildings!
