This has been a beautiful journey, meeting the women in your life and history. I know that many of us come from different cultural and religious backgrounds but this way of honoring and remembering our family and friends in such an intimate way feels so very right to me.

thank you for joining us.

Your ofrenda is wrought with wonder and joy!


Roz - First of all, thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a nice comment. Also, I want to tell you how much I appreciate your altar. It is truly a wonderful thing that Mexican traditions like the Day of the Dead are being adopted in other parts of the world, it made me feel so proud. As proud as your ancestors, I'm sure, would feel to see you honoring them in this manner. You've done a great job!
Hugs from California.

Dear Roz, I love the way you have incorporated old china pieces with the photographs, telling the story of the women who have gone before you. The card looks exquisite in its' special silvered frame.
