Welcome to Casita Dos Arbolitos. The English translation of that name means (roughly): House of the Little Trees, or, more literally – according to my Mexican husband Lupe: little house two little trees.

Priced reasonably at  $167,500 USD, this home in central Mexico is another artistic wonder.

Inside… the windows seem part traditional Gothic-style, part organically grown:

I love how everything in an adobe house is so imperfect, so natural and un-measured.

Now there’s a potty that even my two-year-old would not be afraid of!

(Wouldn’t be a true Mexican casa without a little veneration going on!)

Look at all those “little trees” – the house’s namesake.
