Very cool about the fox, Gillian!

You WOULD be close to Mexico if not for us pesky Americans hogging the in-between. ;-)

Happy Dio de los Muertos


Happy All Souls day! Long may they live in our memories (and where ever else they might be:)
A fox! I love their tails, so big in comparison to their wee bodies. Usually it is coyotes one sees.


What a treat to have an encounter with the fox.

Stephanie Bennett

There are few things that touch me more deeply than a sweet close encounter with animals. They are such elevated souls.


HA! How fun! Thanks for the links. Your calaveras are really festive. sequins!!!

LOVE your lolli-skelly sequined gals! True catrinas! This was a wealth of information, and i can totally relate-no marigolds in sight!

And a fox-it must be good omen. Indeed, I would be honored too!

Have a lovely day!

Feliz Dia de los Muertos! One of these times we're just going to all have to make a visit to Mexico this time of the year. Surround ourselves with Marigolds,lemons limes, sugar cane,beautiful landscapes, great food and wonderful company.Today I brought out my pictures from Mexico (a few years back) when my son asked what Mexico was. I'd love to take him there as it's a very special place and his fathers ancestors came from there. Anyhow, I'm rambling~I love all of the things you mentioned related to el Dia de los Muertos.
Thank you for sharing:)

Happy Dia de los Muertos, too, Gillian! Yes, I'd agree that you must have had an encounter with the spirit world when face-to-face with that fox. I wonder what the meaning behind that would be?

...and a happy one to you as well, Gillian. Looking as beautiful as ever in your photo, I must say.

Thanks for all of the info.

LOVE this idea!! I'm not near or in the right climate for good marigolds either... I settled for fake ones.


What does the Fox totem represent?


I love it all. Thank you for sharing. Have a great week.


Thank you for the fox story - that reminded me of the encounter I had with an owl the night before last. I didn't put two and two together until just this moment - that this is only one of a series of owl events in my life lately. I think I need to "ponder the signifigance". Hmmmm....


Such fun, Gillian...and love the glittery, festive skelton lollipops! Happy Dio de los Muertos The fox made for an extra special moment during your celebrations...beautiful! Happy Day, Gillian :o) ((HUGS))
