Our Southwest Christmas Tree aka Yucca flower stalk has re-emerged this year albeit with only a couple new additions as we steadily replace the ornaments made in China with ornaments handmade by our friends and family members. This year a fine hummingbird carved by Tom McDevitt of McWidget Studios joins the throng adding song, crackle and movement amidst the yucca flowers. Also, a family heirloom, yes, handmade, though by whom, unknown, hangs now. It's a cut glass crystal that once graced the family dining room chandelier. Other handmade ornaments can be seen in the background:
Happiest Holidays to all and best wishes for a great year ahead.
