Southwestern Christmas

The annual girlfriends Christmas party had a southwestern food theme this year.  I asked the hostess if she wanted Christmas or southwestern themed cookies.  Both? she inquired.  Why, yes, we can.

Who doesn’t think of cow skulls with festive garland when Christmas comes to mind? I mean, really…SW Xmas 1.jpg

Bone Dry

Maybe this isn’t Arizona but Colorado has been pretty, darned dry lately.  The only plants that seem to be thriving are the cacti.  Continuing in my skeleton groove, I thought it only fair to bring these bad-to-the-bone cactus to Halloween life.  Even the orange and black/terra cotta pots kept it hauntingly festive.  I can definitely say that the one on the right is a spiny cactus. Hope they tickle your funny bone…
