Christmas Forest

We are so lucky at the farm to be able to gather our greenery from our woods and trees

During Thanksgiving Robert and Luis cut down trees

So did Smartest Farmer and Filaberto

Terry made this enchanted forrest

At night

With lots of twig balls

Getting twiggy with it

Christmas Past

A long long time ago in another house   ------ we really got ready for Christmas and a photo shoot…. How I put all those ornaments on two  fluffy 10 foot trees I don't know.  Country Living 2004 December

We even made the cover

This was a great shoot with my favorite editor and stylist

The famous Santapana is on the back shelf

I still do a toy tree on my kitchen island

My famous wreath that everyone has copied-( me too)

Room with a View

Our friend Joe took a great picture through the new pool house this weekend… the sky was so blue! This post also introduces the new building we have been working on, the pool house, even though it is now closed for the winter.

Through the pool house to the cows

Even though its winter it is pretty

Looking west

Deborah,  aka The Intrepid Hunter took these during her weekend visit!

The start of Christmas decorating….
The deer chandelier  was a killer find by my friend Wendy and the lattice was made by our wonderful builder Ted
