Interesting Finds

Chris from Canada was in Cuba and found this mini at one of the Artex stores.

She says: "It is a lovely hand-made representation one corner of the style of home one sees

in the Camaguey area of Cuba, complete with one of the clay jars they used to use to
collect rainwater before water began to be piped in to this arid region.
The maker is an older woman named Minerva whose husband makes wood items for the tourist trade, and she uses his
wood scraps as well as anything else she can scrounge to make her scenes. Does this
sound familiar to anyone? :-D"
