I just recently returned from a trip to Mexico. I know there’s ample coverage in the media regarding safety and difficulties for travelers in Mexico. I am happy to report I experienced nothing of the sort.

Great summer reading in Mexico or elsewhere While recently on retreat at Wisdom House, I found and began re-reading a little gem of a book, "Gift from the Sea." In it, Anne Morrow Lindbergh shares her experiences during 2 weeks at a beach cottage. The book captures her musings, prompted by shells found at the shore. For me, the book was just what the doctor ordered. Perfect summer reading. Perfect reminder of the importance of having a room of one's own. Perfect reminder of the wisdom found in Nature. Perfect reminder of why I love Cottage ...

Whether you are in Mexico, the US or Canada, this is the time to de-clutter, to bring in color, to spruce up your Mexico decoration and your furniture ... perhaps the time to get new cushions for that Mexican sofa! Customers often ask us if we can make new cushions for their sofas. Truth is, unless you already own one of our super comfortable slip cover sofas, it is not so easy to make just replacement cushions for your sofa in Mexico. If you already own a Mexican slipcover sofa from Gringo furniture, we can make another cover for you, no p...
