Book of Life..


We’ve just been to see the ‘Book of Life’ at the cinema..perfect for the run up to Halloween – a family friendly fiesta of Mexican culture bursting with vibrant colours and life where you can literally touch the heat of the Mexican don’t need to be a kid to enjoy this one – I absolutely loved it! If I could jump on a plane now and head to Mexico to see the Day of the Dead celebrations for myself, I would.. I’ve been utterly seduced by the folk art and magical artistry…


It’s inspired me to look at Mexican decorations for Christmas: We buy one special decoration for the tree each year – last year it was this one, but this year I think I’m rather spoilt for choice. Just one??!


So today we’re heading to Columbia Road (has a wonderful flower market at the weekend) to check out this Mexican shop..then we’re heading home via the poppies at the Tower of London..what’s more the sun is shining and the sky is blue my chilaquiles!

    I would love to see the poppies….but live to far away. 😦 That film looks fun too. Enjoy picking out your decorations. I always try and buy some whenever i go away…so recently purchased a couple of icelandic ones. 🙂

    Well you Liked my blog. And I liked yours. You’re a Kate, I’m a Kate, everyone’s a Kate-Kate. You have so many commentators I fear I will be crowded out by the din. I like your pictures, your philosophy, your writing style. I like the post about the uppity leather handbags with slogans on them, but fear I would tire of them. I love this one about Mexican stuff. I will blog about Frida tomorrow ; although she has been overdone I still love her style. Stay in touch.
