Autumn Madness!

As written in the inworld notice:

There are also Fairy arbors in a few assorted autumn colors

Dia de los Muertos -  Marigold Madness Extravaganza!!!!!!
☠ Autumn Vine, wall climber 

★Because the gazebo's, arbors and the vine are pretty self explanatory - let me explain the MADNESS of marigolds I have going on here.

   Marigolds are used as offering and decoration, paths of their petals are strewn along the ground, great piles of flower heads sit on tables, in vases, garlands, and wreaths as it is said that the fragrance of them will help lead a spirit home or to the other offerings set out for them. They are often referred to as "Flores de Muerto", Flowers of the Dead.

   If you would like to learn more about this holiday and the rich history that goes with it, I encourage you to flex your googlefu, there is some fantastic information out there if you are so inclined. (Because... Yay learning!) And- if nothing else, you can find some amazing inspiration out there on how to use these in your own displays. (Because - Yay creativity!)



★ The main store is still being tweaked. In fact, things are kind of a mess. I have things up on the tree platform, I have things in the new store on the ground... I have things in my inventory, I have things that I am discontinuing or remaking. ... I don't really know where some of the things are, so if you are looking for something, please let me know, I might have thrown it in the lake in a pique.

★  Dont forget the gourd lights and jackolanterns! They are out on the ground at the new store... and hopefully more is coming as time, inspiration etc permit. I'll try to keep up with notices, I promise. :)  There may even be jewelry coming. -whistles-

Thank you so much for your time, patience, sense of humor and support!
