Dia de los muertas

If you know me well, you know of my love for dia de los muertas, or Day of the Dead dolls. I love the history of Mexico's honoring their dead and just the beauty of the art of crafting these dolls. We have seen many over the years in our travels to Mexico, but often aren't able to transport them home safely when we travel.
When we arrived in Malta, 2 of my dolls were shattered to the point of being unrepairable. So that left me with my two favorites that I've had for 14 years. While they too have their moving scars, they are still intact.

For Christmas, Chris surprised me with 4 new beauties, shipped all the way from Mexico. They were lost in transport, but still miraculously made it undamaged.
I LOVE THEM!!! They are in the kitchen, where I can enjoy them the majority of the day.
