Casa del Muertos
So the Dia de Los Muertos festivities left us with lots and lots of beautiful objects du arte, which really weren’t ready for long-time storage. The kids and I decorated a couple wooden skeletons (from Jo-Anne’s no less, the 50% off sale kind-of makes it o.k.) and attached them to bamboo poles for the procession- Post party, a couple Ikea frames and gorgeous craft paper from Paper Doll, and the walls look 100% better-
we bit the bullit and actually bought nine extra, untreated Ikea frames, painted them and mounted the papel picado banners- and holy smoke! the livingroom looks classy! Well, for us it looks good. Squint, ignore the glare, it looks nice, right?
