I don't know what it is,
but I just can't seem to get in the 
Christmas spirit.

Maybe it's because 
I truly think 
people should be in the
kind, generous, loving
Christmas spirit
all year long,
every single day.

I feel the same way about other holidays - 
Mother's Day, Father's Day, Valentine's Day...
I think people should honor their loved ones
every. single. day.

Speaking of loved ones,
here is a photo of my beautiful, dear daughter
and her thoughtful handsome fiance,
and their great big goofy lover-pie dog.

 They were here with last Sunday night with the rest of my family 
(plus another big dog!)
for dinner.
We do this every Sunday.
It's always full of people, food, 
laughter, fun,
and LOTS of love.
It's absolutely BEAUTIFUL.

Well, what do ya know --- 
I guess I am in the Christmas spirit,

and have been all along.

Day of the Dead

Day of the dead is drawing near!!  
Those of you unfamiliar with this wonderful tradition, here is a brief description.
Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de los Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico, where it is a national holiday, and all banks are closed. The celebration takes place on November 1, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints' Day and All Souls Day (November 2). Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts. They also leave possessions of the deceased.
Come celebrate this amazing tradition!  
These are three Day of the Dead items in my shop.

And stay tuned...more to come!

Weekly Challenge: Roses

This week's challenge at Inspiration Avenue
is all about roses.
Create anything that has to do with roses.
Well, the first thing (or person, really!!) that I think of that has to do with flowers 
of any kind is
Frida Kahlo.
This hanging jewelry box was already made, but I thought it would be a perfect selection for the challenge.
Click on the pics to view them larger and in more detail :)
You can find it here.

Full of Grace

Mother Mary Full of Grace.

This could be one of very favorite pieces.  
It was amazing to work on, and I think it turned out amazingly.
I could hardly wait to let a stage dry before I could work on it next!
I would wake up at night,
and I would want to go look at it or work on it.
Now it's done, and I can't stop looking at it.

Really I'm not bragging;
I just love making art!!

I hope you like it too.

Here are more photos of the other sides and angles
of this beautiful bottle.
(You can click on the images to make them larger.)
You will definitely see more of these in my Etsy shop

Can you imagine having a collection of beautiful bottles
in a special place in your home?
I can.

Fall is in the air!!

  I can see it, hear it, feel it and smell it!
And I'm excited because fall is my very favorite time of the year.
Little signs are popping up here and there in our wonderful New Mexico way.  
The chamisa is in bloom,
the green chile is roasting on the street corners,
fresh red chile ristras hanging from homes and buildings,
little bits of golden yellow leaves on the trees,
and there's a little crisp in the air.
Most people think of the New Year and spring as a times of a new beginning, 
but my friend Laura and I see fall that way.
It's especially that way this year for me.

One of our favorite places to eat in the fall is
El Pinto.
Yes, it has good mexican food and margaritas,
but you should see the sprawling outdoor patio and garden!
The colors, plants and flowers in the front
should give you a little hint of what
I'm talking about.   

Tomorrow, I'm going to make a big pot of green chile stew.
Now what's more 'fall' than that?
