Dreaming of Casa de Maria


My Great Grandmother Mary (quite the character)

Every summer I spend several weeks a year out in New Mexico. My great grandmother discovered this little cabin in the mountains and we have all enjoyed time out there ever since. My great grandmother’s name was Mary, hence Casa de Maria. I cannot express in words how much I love this place.

New Year always gets me excited about “the cabin”. I don’t know why…….I guess it is because it is in January that I start planning my life around how many times I can get out to the mountains. One of the things I enjoy most about this place is that I can really tap into the creative part of me. Three generations of creative women led the way to a truly eclectic home away from home. Here are a few pictures from past and present to give you a mental image.

I have so many stories and plans….Friday may become the day of the week to talk about my other love (besides my family), Casa de Maria.
