dia de los muertos




My sweet friend Sigrid sent home some fantastic gifts from San Francisco. Among them was this amazing mexican flag-chain celebrating the day of the dead, dia de los muertos. I have for a long time been in love with mexican skeletons and some day i will get a tattoo inspired by them... -i just noticed how shaky the pictures look! annoying -sorry about that!

yyeeiii I´m mexican, so it´s so funny to see in your blog that you have some "papel picado" of Dia de Muertos in your house, haha, but it´s cool. :)
Dia de Muertos is one of my favourite traditions of my country its soooo mystical, beautiful and magic!

cheers!

I have the same set, here in England : ) they usually only go up for a couple of weeks in October but maybe they should be a permanent fixture, they are pretty special..

I really love them too, very inspiring! I like making paper cuttings so maybe I will copy this idea :) Hope they don't scare the red panda :)
