Happy Holidays from our ranch to yours…

midcentury-holidayMuch like the summer and the fall this year, the holiday season seems to be going at warp speed. Even with a packed schedule, I still managed to get some decorations up, because what would the holidays be without a shiny silver tree decked out with lights and colorful ornaments, and a whole village of midcentury houses?

From our ranch to yours, Happy Holidays — and a Tiki-Tastic New Year!
