Easter is around the corner


Do you know all the easter icons and their meaning?

Easter eggs and baby chicks- They symbolize new life.
 An egg also is a symbol of the rock tomb out of which Christ emerged when he arose again.
The chick, hatching out of the egg, symbolizes new life or re-birth.

Easter bunny - The rabbit,
was a symbol of abundant new life in ancient times,
 and reminds us of spring and new life.

Easter Lilies- The white blossoms symbolize the purity of Jesus.
Lilies, emerging from the earth in the spring,
also symbolize new life and the resurrection of Christ.

The lamb - Represents Jesus, "the Lamb of God".

The cross - Symbolizes Jesus' victory over death.

Palm branches- Represents when Jesus arrived in Jerusalem on the first Palm Sunday
 and people waved palm branches, welcoming him.

Candles - Symbolize Jesus, "the light of the world".

Pretzels - A food eaten during Lent- the twisted shaped symbolizes arms crossed in prayer.

Easter & Spring flowers- Daffodils and tulips bloom in the spring, and symbolize spring and new life.

The Butterfly is one of the significant symbols of Easter.

Its whole life cycle is meant to symbolize the life of Jesus Christ.
 The first stage, is the caterpillar, which stands for His life on Earth.
 Second phase begins from the cocoon stage, portraying the crucifixion and burial of Jesus.
 The third and final stage is the butterfly, representing His raising from the dead in a glorified body and peace.

Big Thank You

A big thank you to everyone who participated in the Shop Hop 
I cannot express how happy I was about the amount of shops that accepted the invitation.

I hope it gave more exposure to all our shops and I wish the best luck to all of you.

I did this, because I was shocked to receive an invitation to another one that stated
 "please add your shop IF YOU DO NOT SELL THE SAME THINGS I OFFER in my store"

Can you believe it?

Happy weekend to all! I hope that this week has been filled with many accomplishments for all of you. I'll be taking a minute to remember my beautiful Guadalajara, the city where I was born, and I'd like to share some photos from there!

I love Guadalajara, it is an incredibly beautiful city and its people are very friendly and warm. I hope to return soon to visit my family and enjoy the delicious typical cuisine of Guadalajara Jalisco, the land where Tequila and Mariachi were born.

I hope you'll like too.
