Morning Walk Finds

Bandera Mexicana Altar 

WALK! They say it helps you lose weight. It's true, I've lost some 25 lbs. but that's another story. Every morning my dogs, Rocky & Luna, take me on a fast-pace, get-out-of-breath, walk. 

Ofrenda de Maiz
It's amazing the things you can notice during a morning walk with these two fur babies. They sniff everything, not only trees, bushes and posts, but also street art, cars, and Day of the Dead altars. 

Limones & Apples
Yip, my hood is that festive, we got the colorful Dia de los Muertos Altars through out my community. That's thanks to the Muertos Festival put together by the Sherman Heights Community Center and the Historic Barrio District.  

Cafecito & Arroz
Neighbors are encouraged to set up their altars and ofrendas... and many do.  Thank you vecinos!

Native American Altar
If you wan to see some mega Altares, make sure to stop by the Festival this Saturday, November 1st.  I'll be vending too, so you can always stop by the Wink booth and say hello (and snatch your wink!).
The Teepee

In any case,  I hope the pics of the altars right around my block are enough to brighten your day. 

The Celestial Background
Perhaps, you get motivated to set up your own altar in your front lawn. If you do, make sure to send us pics. We would love to see them.

As always, rock your wink!
