"Gorgeous pillow cover"

This pillow cover is fabulous! I love it so much I bought another in a different color, and I m considering a third! The weaving is so beautifully and skillfully done. Looking at it on my couch makes me happy!

"Stunning statement"

This bedspread is gorgeous and makes a stunning statement against rich cherry furniture. Carmens work is of excellent quality and we will treasure this item for years to come. It is the perfect weight for our high desert climate.
