Mourning Monday 7.30.12


This was one of the most amazing cemetery plots I have ever seen! 
While vacationing in Kauai, Hawaii in July I visited two really beautiful cemeteries on the South Shore. 
Alongside these plots, there was a Japanese section as well as a Chinese section. 
So different, yet all so beautiful.
I also shot a short video of this plot, since seeing these flowers move in the wind is what really made an impact. I will share it once it's uploaded...

Funeral Sauce on tumblr

Every now and then, I peruse the world of morticians. If I wasn't already a jeweler its what I'd want to be. I was surfing online and discovered Funeral Sauce, a tumblr of a "twentysomething funeral director's apprentice" and I couldn't stop reading it. It's insightful, informative and hilarious. I couldn't stop laughing!
He is my kind of people!
Read on and enjoy...
