this is such a rich and lovely remembrance of your family.
I love the idea of your grandmother's mah jong tiles and the little troll all dressed up so lovely.
I have written a remembrance of my mother.
Thank you for hosting this.

Stephanie, what a beautiful gathering of wonderful memories! I can almost hear the click of the tiles and it makes me smile to know your trolls wore nothing but the finest wear! I will be grouting and painting the finishing touches on my shrine today!


Oh my gosh, Stephanie. What a great night. I must say, seeing the little bits of the altar moved me as I know it must have, ten fold, for all of you! thank you for sharing this night with us. I hope the auction goes super well. I have yet to participate and yet each year I think I should. I believe that next year will be the one for me.

You ladies look totally ghoulish in your masks and I envy you such wonderful, close friends!
Have a wonderful start to your November.

Brilliant of course! Your ofrenda is breathtakingly lovely, I love your sweet memories, and how you incorporated the tiles and the troll doll. Perhaps next year I will do that too!

The Catrina Goddesses rock! Happy Day of the Dead, to you and yours, and thank you for hosting such a worthy celebration.

What a beautiful altar for your family, friends and pets. I'm always awed by your photos, especially these. I love the way you noted that your Grandmother Elaine made furniture for your doll house. Very nice. I thank you for sharing your family. It is truly a wonderful offering of love.

A Year of Gratitude

  • A Year of Gratitude
    2016 is a potent year for me...sweet '16, it is my 60th year and since I made the decision to keep this blog going for at least another year I am going to use this as a daily gratitude practice. If you choose to visit and perhaps leave a comment I am grateful for that too.
