Terrific idea -- and I love the photos. The quote, too, was sensational and not a little sobering.

Beautiful pictures!

Ms. Moon

What a beautiful quote. I believe that, too.
And thank you for the flowers in cans. One of my most favorite images.
I love you, dear. Always.


I am getting my post ready!! Using some of YOUR perfect words to excite and inspire!!!

see you tomorrow.


Sounds like a great idea Rebecca. I hope to participate on Sundays. I am just so lucky to have been inspired by Stephanie a few years back in doing El Dia and I continue to do so each year.Through Stephanie I met you and what a wonderful time it has been knowing you both. That's a beautiful quote.


I would be scared with the third type of death. Thanks for the neat picture of amarillos. This flower is my great grandmother's favorite. It always reminds me of her.

Hi Rebecca!! Am so looking forward to joining in the Day of the Dead fun this year. I'll be posting photos Sunday night of my new Day of the Dead altar, under construction this week at the Longmont Museum and Cultural Center in Northern Colorado.

I'm planning to participate and will put something up on my blog tonight inspiring others to join in. Life has kept me more busy lately that I tend to be in my senior years and I'm spending a lot of time at the chiropractor trying to get a handle on my sciatica. I've really made a lot of lifestyle changes in the past several weeks--and incorporating those changes with commitment takes so much energy. My SoulCollage group will be making an ofrenda this year and sharing photos and memorabilia of their deceased loved ones and ancestors. And several of us are going to the Day of the Day celebration in San Pedro on the 30th.

great idea. I'll try to get my act together and post pics too!


Hi Rebecca,
I love these pictures you have posted and look forward to reading more about this special occasion. x

I'm not sure where to put my link. Throughout the years, I've made several art quilts with a Dia de los Muertos theme. I have posted one this morning and will post one each Sunday morning in October.


I am so excited and grateful that this will be happening. Here at Spadoville, we have been celebrating the lives of our loved ones on Los Dias de Los Muertos for many years. The fiesta grows every year as more and more people come to our home and begin to understand the concept of loving our dearly departed and keeping their spirits alive in our own hearts.
I love the photos you have posted here. (Makes me think we need more flowers this year). I can't wait to see and read what others have to say, a trading of ideas and thoughts along with traditions. It's all good.
I invite all to come to Round Circle and allow me to share our stories.



These are such beautiful photos. I love the first one of the shrine. I will be posting, too! I just need Mr. Linky instructions. :)

Looking forward to Dia De Bloglandia. I will be gathering thoughts, memories, and photos to share.
La LLorona,
