We just finalized a sales contract on our house! It will be sad to leave this beautiful property that we have put so much work into. At least we have until May 31st to enjoy our home. Then we can move on to our new adventure – living a self-sustainable lifestyle in Tucson, maybe even building an eco-house?!
This is just a sampling of all the various designs and patterns of Talavera tiles that our property has throughout the main house, casita, and exterior areas. They are all hand-painted designs on clay tiles; all the imperfections add to their beauty!
It’s difficult to pick out my favorite tiles, but these are right up there!
A close contender for my favorites are these fanciful bird tiles that we installed around the curved opening of the beehive fireplace in the master bedroom.
There are lots more Talavera tiles – in the art studio, casita, on stair risers, etc. – that you’ll have to get glimpses of in other pictures!

We’ve just lowered the price on our wonderful garden estate in Ajijic on Lake Chapala from $690,000 to $599,000. Maybe the new price will make our property affordable to someone who really loves our house!?! Take a look again at our website at www.casamosaica-ajijic.com.
I found these lamps and brackets, of which we have 10 scattered around the exterior of the main house, in Patzcuaro. They came without glass, so I bought some textured glass and cut and installed it in all the lamps.

This first shot is of a couple sconces on either side of the master bedroom fireplace that I designed and a local iron worker hand-forged. There are about a dozen of these lovely sconces scattered around both the main house and the casita.
These wicker basket lights are hanging in the skylight over the copper tub in the master bathroom to add a special ambiance to that space. In the bottom left corner of the photo is the hanging copper lamp in the large master shower.
This next photo shows the copper vanity lights in the master bath with perforated designs and marbles inserted in them which sparkle when the lights are on. Together with the copper faucets and sinks and tub, they complete the ensemble.
Last for now is the hallway light in the bedroom wing of the house, a beautiful amber blown-glass lamp with ironwork details. You can also see in the photo the fancy brickwork boveda ceiling and molding around the edge.
There are more light fixtures to go, which will come in a later posting.

There are so many artistic and interesting light fixtures, I have to show them in more than one posting.
There are blown glass and iron ones, wrought iron ones with and without blown glass shades, copper ones, and some were designed by me and custom-made by local iron workers.
In this posting are photos of the light fixtures in the kitchen and adjoining rooms – the atrium and dining room.
More will follow in another posting.

We found a wonderful cabinetmaker who also does wood carving, so we had him do all the woodwork in the main house – kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinetry, office drawers and shelves, closet doors, library shelves and cabinets, even our closets!
We chose not to have hand-carved details on the kitchen cabinets to make them easier to keep clean, although they still have a nice diamond-groove detail. But everywhere else we have lots of beautiful hand-carved details.
To stay with the Mexican style, we used wrought iron hardware to enhance the beautiful cabinetry.
