stuff from Argentina!

This is all of it. It doesn’t even look like that much stuff!

We had all our stuff shipped to Maine from Buenos Aires, Argentina, by cargo freight ship! It took a long time and caused lots of stress but it was cheap and … miraculously, here’s our stuff! delivered to our doorstep. Arrived on Wednesday, right on time! (there’s more detail about the harrowing process of arranging the cargo shipment here)

Dreaming of Tiles

Argentina is filled with beautiful beautiful spanish tiles everywhere; it’s honestly one of the most amazing things about this city. We had the awesome idea to buy a bunch of them to bring home and use in our house in Maine; what a great way to remember Buenos Aires and have these great patterns in our new house. We just have to figure out how to get them home; the logistics are a bit of a nightmare. In the meantime we’ve been window-shopping in the tile district and snapping lots of pictures. These beautiful encaustic tiles can be ordered with custom colors. THEY’RE SO PRETTY!
