~Dia De Los Muertos~

Welcome to the Bloglandia party hosted by Rodrigvitz Style!
It's in celebration of Dia De Los Muertos also known as The Day of the Dead. One is to take time and honor those that were near and dear to you by creating an altar of the loved ones' favorites foods and items.




Hand Creped Flowers





Pan Dulce




My loving grandmother Lucinda


Thank you Stephanie for hosting a lovely party! And an opportunity to honor my grandma, Lucinda Silva Fuentes!

Beautiful colors, vibrant images. I have to admit, St. Francis (or is it St. Joseph or....?) takes on a somewhat sinister look in a couple of the pics. LOL.
