Hmm. The treats of the season. Pueblo certainly has its favorites.
Fruitcake, schmoo-tcake. Foods from diverse backgrounds are part of what make a Pueblo holiday special. We either gotta make em' or buy em' but either way they are our staples till New Year's. Have you made your potica yet? Have you ordered your tamales? Can you still find cardones? Did you get your sugar cookies? Where's the pizzelle iron!? Better hurry!
What are some foods on your holiday must have list?

decor ideas that you can do cheap, and on the fly.
Have any garden urns that have since lost their flowers? Gather a bunch of clippings from the bushes or trees in your yard, (or ask a neighbor!). Poke in some twigs or pepper berry branches or anything around the yard you can find. Maybe a few faux poinsettia blooms that have fallen off a larger arrangement or from the Dollar Store. Anything to give it touch of color. It will look naturally beautiful. But and when it snows, like it did on this urn last week, it will look magnificent!
The tree in this front yard of this always festive house is adorned with "presents" wrapped in plastic gift wrap to stand up to the weather. Be sure to add rocks to your empty boxes before wrapping so they don't blow away!

|There's nothing like the striking red of holiday poinsettias to get you in the Christmas mood. These lovelies cheering up our studio were purchased at the Lowe's black Friday sale!|

Turns out you don't have to be invited. Its open to the public. : )
Anyway, a glance down the halls of the 1st floor entryway swooshed us in nostalgia. Parts of the old post office are still there! Complete with marble walls and floors, gold lighting fixtures and fine wood work. We encourage you to peek in for a history byte for the young ones or a trip down memory lane for the Generation X-ers and up. To a time when things were built to last. We imagine that if post offices still looked like this, maybe waiting in the long lines wouldn't feel so painful.
In many towns, Main Street, and the surrounding areas were once bustling places. What memories do you have?
