cigar box shrine auction



CIGAR BOX AUCTION TO BENEFIT THE STREET CHILDREN OF OAXACA


Rebecca Brooks of Recuerda me Corazon invites you to visit the online Cigar Box Shrine Auction opening March 1 through March 31. Please visit here to view the wonderful shrines that have been donated by artists thoughout the country. The above shrine is my donation honoring my son Mitch Celaya who passed 11 years ago. Mitch was born on the thirteenth of February, when I finished the shrine, I counted the candles and there were thirteen. The embellishment at the bottom of the shrine is off of a necklace that I was wearing on the day he passed. On January 24, 2009...his daughter Nicole Celaya, my granddaughter, left us and went to join him. I miss you guys very much.

This is sad and beautiful, both the words and obviously the shrine.

Just lovely.

Cory,
This is a beautiful shrine in memory of your son. I am saddened to hear of the recent passing of your granddaughter, Nicole. I hope you find comfort soon.

It's a great way to honor our loved ones who are gone from us but never forgotten. Beautiful work from the soul.
