I dearly remember
my cowgirl outfit I had as a little girl.
it doesn't really surprise me
that I ended up living in the west and cherishing a western lifestyle.
I have an accumulation of Christmas ornaments that
borders on excessive...
it is excessive....really excessive.
When I lived in the Midwest one Christmas season I
decorated 13 Christmas trees in my home...
Not all full sized...many were table top-
each with a different theme.
It was fun to dress up the long gray winter days
of the Midwest for the holidays.
My trees would be put up end of October..
were not taken down until mid January.
Things are different now.
The desert sun beckons me outdoors daily....
and the "skies are not cloudy all day." :)
My holiday decorations now are more carefully chosen
and are usually put up just before Thanksgiving
and taken down New Years Day.
Above are a few terracotta tile glazed ornaments
I chose to place on a smaller white Christmas tree in our guest room...
They really stand out against the white tree boughs...
and feel very festive
for our warmer Christmas season here in Arizona.
Ahh! Christmas "Out West"...
goes to show you if you dream hard enough...
childhood dreams do come true!! LOL :)
we have learned something from Yesterday."
