Lots of things make me appreciate Albuquerque but recently I fell in love all over again when I clicked on 'shop local' at etsy.com and typed in 'Albuquerque'. There are some amazing folks doing amazing things here in ABQ and selling them on etsy.

I'm so bored. I know, "if you're bored then you're boring" and all that. But I'm bored. Holidays are boring. What do people do in Albuquerque? I used to know. But I have become nearly comatose in the last year.
For instance, if I were to go out right now on a Sunday night would there be any place to go?
Ok, I'm done.

If Martha Stewart made Christmas Eve luminarias with those guys from Hey Jhonny, this could be her user guide.
The Rooster on Atlantic Avenue
I don’t know if Barelas has ever been without roosters. In my imagination, chickens arrived here shortly after Don Pedro de Varela put roots into this soil in 1662 and have maintained a presence in Barelas ever since.

Hey, does anyone want to buy me this bicycle tee for Christmas? Oh wait. it's not about me.
One of my favorite Albuquerque memories is walking along the luminaria-lined streets of Barelas through a light snowfall, following the Las Posadas de Barelas nativity and enjoying the sounds of Christmas carols sung in Spanish and English. My two children, dressed up as an angel and a shepherd, were old enough to carry their candles without setting themselves on fire, and young enough to take heed of mom’s words about the dangers of…Continue
The Albuquerque Museum is a welcome jewel in the Duke City crown. Where else in town can you find a suit of ancient armor with an arrow hole, a well-thought-out permanent collection, a traveling Egyptian exhibit and some great pasta sauce?
On Jan. 7, the Albuquerque City Council will decide whether to preserve a nearly 70-year-old part of its Route 66 heritage, or let a local developer tear it down to make way for luxury townhouses.
I'm talking about El Vado Motel, on Central…Continue
I love beads. I live for beads. I string beads. I know lots about them and know where to get the steals and deals. My favorites are vintage Swarovski crystals and Venetian glass. I was thinking about my obsession with beads and where it came from.
Here in 'Burque we have great bead stores. But the one place I miss buying them was a store on…Continue
