HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Last year, at this time, I was in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico celebrating El Di′a de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead. I spent a good part of the day in the cemetery where families were honoring and celebrating their dead loved ones with flowers and music.

In the evening, people celebrated by dressing as Katrinas & Katrins and made installations all over the city

I wanted to buy skull or skeleton earrings but found none in Mexico or NY.  When I found them in Paris in April, I bought them anticipating how great they would look at Halloween. Guess what? I can’t find them anywhere! Tore apart everyplace I could think of to find them but no luck. So I will leave you with best wishes for a Spooky & Sweet Halloween!

Don’t forget! Come to my Open Studio next Saturday & Sunday. More info here.2013-11-07 12.24.22-2
