As much as I like pumpkins and mums…

I love the color and simplicity of the beautiful ristras I find this time of year in Santa Fe, where I have a home.

Walking through the markets is always a pleasure and the assortment and quality of ristras I found this year was spectacular.

I have a  modest traditional adobe home in Santa Fe so sometimes I pick up the smaller ristras for myself but I knew Jane would want the biggest ristra available because…that’s Jane!

She said it arrived in perfect shape and is now hanging on her front door, and she loves it.

Best wishes from Santa Fe,
