Here's a full sized poster I just completed. It measures 24 x 36.
Over the years I've collected many vintage and antique images of the Guadalupe and surrounding areas. I decided to put them into a collage poster. I hope to make the poster available to those who would enjoy it. Let m,e know if you're interested!

Amazing, isn't it?

Here are some rare chapel bells we found.... They come with the original bolts. We don't know anything about them other than they came from an estate sale in France. They're very old. Can you picture in morning fog, locals hearing, moving toward and beside these bells as they arrive for Mass.

These bells were used to signal the start of Mass.

You can find these and other wonderful vintage items on our Etsy sites, Vintagelourdes and Mariposafuerte

We visited Tina's mom up in Cambria for Thanksgiving.
Cinnabar is a great place in town that carries our art!
Magda and Joe are super! Stop by and say, "Hi!"
