ūüĆ∑ Hello, lovely Stray Dogs! ūüĆ∑

As March unfolds, we're thrilled to bring you another installment of Stray Dog Digs! Spring is peeking around the corner, and we've curated a delightful collection of things that are bringing us life right now. 

Sit back, soak in the sunshine, and maybe you'll find something you love too.

 

Billy says, "While in San Miguel last week, we were invited to attend a fundraiser by the group Birds Without Borders benefiting The Pelee Island Observatory. The party was hosted by the owners of Camino Sylvestre (a great interiors and gift emporium in downtown San Miguel de Allende. They also own the Mexican made mouth blown glass hummingbird feeders sold worldwide called Parasol!)  at the house of dynamic duo Jim McKeever and Alfredo Garcia-Lucio. The event was graced by Margaret Atwood who read from her forthcoming chat book, Birding with Graeme Gibson. Think of The Pelee Island Observatory as a NAFTA refuge for migratory birds on the border of Canada and US. We learned that of the 115 migratory species that have been banded on the island, 105 of them spend their winters in Mexico."

Speaking of Camino Sylvestre... Jane says, "The Camino Sylvestre boys started out as a wholesalers ( that is how we know them, from the shows way back when) and their wholesale company is called Parasol. They do not have a retail website but do have some items on Amazon.

Santiago (our world traveler) tells us, "I am going to Merida Yucatan this weekend for one of my best friend's wedding. We will scuba dive a Cenote called Nah Yah, check out some ruins that used to be pyramids, and finally we will visit an old Hacienda that has water tunnels and couple cenotes as well.

I think these places are going to be so beautiful. Can't wait!" 


Jane and Billy's friend, Amy Flurry (who is also a press expert), is a founding partner of Aloka. This brand is so special! They use existing resources to create beautiful home textiles.
