Magnet Monday: Spanish Parquetry

Cheesy Refrigerator Magnet for Monday, September 22, 2014
"Untitled", Spanish parquetry, circa 2012

In honor of the first day of fall, some fall-ish colors. This one a gift from globe-trotting family on a visit to a region in Spain where parquetry is well known. Parquetry creates designs by using thin layer veneer, traditionally wood; not to be confused with marquetry, which is decoration made of thin layer wood veneer (hold on - wait a minute...). 

Magnet Monday features a selection from our semi-vast and ever growing collection of cheesy refrigerator magnets. Without doubt the perfect souvenir. Only slightly less cheesy than collecting snow globes but maybe a lot easier to smuggle in your bra. If need be. Which I hope it never is. Unless it's really worth it.
