We love Cost Plus World Market – a chain of stores in 30 states that sells a nice mix of things at value prices. Sadly, we do not live in one of those 30 states where the 250-plus stores are located, but once again we are saved by the internet.


I like to browse around the Cost Plus World Market site because you never know what you are going to find. Recently I came across this wonderful frame that just spoke to me. I love it!

“A clever and colorful picture frame crafted by Alejandro Chavez. He employs the time-honored techniques used to create his retablo altars, constructing the frame in wood and filling its shelves with molded ceramic plaster figures. Varied scenes represent the energy of Carnavalito, a regional celebration held in the Peruvian Andes. Painted in vivid hues and finished in a lustrous varnish, this piece lends distinctive spirit to any décor.”
