Weekend in Houston

Saturday
04/20/2013
Woke up late and decided to finally check out Catalinas Coffee shop. The boyfriend has been talking about it non-stop so I figured why not, anything beats Starbucks!
I love coffee but only when I'm in the mood for it if not a Topo Chico is like magic!

After chugging my iced coffee, which I honestly didn't like, and people watching we decided to check out the East side. Gotta' love Facebook Events!
There was a Frida Kahlo festival happening at East Side Studios and it was a beautiful day, so why not let's check it out!
 
 
 There where lots of beautiful pieces and all was about Frida. There was even a painting of a Chola Frida. I'm actually not a Frida Kahlo fan, I like some of her paintings but not really. Don't get me wrong as a poet and woman she's amazing but I'm not in love with her paintings. I rather view Diego Riveras work for hours!
I did find a piece that made me smile, it was a bench with dolls around it by artist Lowbrow Pilgrim. His work can be viewed at https://www.facebook.com/lowbrow.pilgrim.9
 


 
Another cool piece:

We later went next door to check out the local crafts. My friend felt in love with the earrings by Cynthia Vela. https://www.facebook.com/lowbrow.pilgrim.9#!/RETAIL.ART.JEWELRY?fref=ts
 


Jewelry I had to definitely buy! The artist is from Chile and I need to find his info. I will post when I get a chance.
