Hope House Home for Boys

The cards that I sell here in Chapala and Ajijic, Mexico benefit the dental program for the boys at Hope House in the nearby village of Ixlahuacan. There are close to 30 boys at the home and many of them come to the home having received no dental treatment. If you live here at Lakeside and would like to order a quality, hand crafted card for a special occasion and help me contribute to this worthy cause, please e-mail me at bettyinchapala@yahoo.com Card price is 50 pesos; the entire sales price is donated to Hope House.

Interesting Things


Back again to show you a few interesting things that add to the charm of my rental house.
** in the upper left, you will see a concrete built in mirror with a piece of art with a marble base (the art piece is moveable, but my gosh, it is heavy -- I'd hate to drop it on my toe!)
** the upper middle picture is a decorative tile scene, which is built in to the brick.
** upper right, lower right and middle photos are of the fireplace. It is concrete with carved flowers, stems, and leaves. Stone surrounds the fireplace and goes all the way to the ceiling with a beautiful piece of art work above the concrete mantle.
** middle left and lower left show the tile work in the kitchen. The same tile work on the range hood goes around the top of the cabinets. The circular tile piece is above the microwave. A unique kitchen, to be sure!
** lower middle -- same theme as the kitchen; three small tiles built into the cobblestone door stoop.
Anybody want to come for a visit?? Just let me know!

How gorgeous! My DH built a job in Puerto Rico in '99-2000. I was able to go out for a week after my mother passed away. His place was very much like yours - there was personality and history everyplace you looked. ZERO plain white walls! It looks so beautiful! Thanks for sharing (and after that first snow/ice storm hits here, I may take you up on the visit...lol)!

Me!!!!!!! If I gas up Maggie May the Matrix with a full tank, can I make it?? You are right, leave the art work in it's place til DH arrives. If you break a toe, you can't walk to Domino's. Priorities my dear!!
