Nicho (NEE-cho)

Made from traditionally from mixed elements, a nicho is a small cut out in an adobe wall that can be used to display objects such as a work of art or a pot. Most commonly found in Santa Fe homes, nichos bring a unique touch to any home. Here are a few examples of nichos in Santa Fe...

Cold weather is upon us, and fireplaces are lighting up.  But do you have the right firewood to burn?

Any homeowner who regularly uses his or her fireplace in the winter months knows that dry, aged wood produces the best results for the ideal fire.  It burns better, produces more heat and produces less creosote build-up in your fireplace than green wood.  Green wood is hard to light and difficult to keep burning, it tends to smoulder and not burn consistently because it retains water.  You can usually tell the difference between older vs. green wood with a simple inspection.  Aged wood tends to have greyish bark and, on the inside, is dry and white, usually lighter than on the outside.  Young wood, instead, appears similar in colour throughout.  Aged

Turquoise has adorned the rulers of Ancient Egypt, the Aztecs (and possibly other Pre-Columbian Mesoamericans), Persia, Ancient Greece, Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley, and in ancient China.  It was cherished by the Pueblo, Navajo and Apache tribes. The Anasazi are believed to have prospered greatly from their production and trading of turquoise.  In Persia, turquoise was the de facto national stone for millennia. It was later brought to India following the establishment of the Mughal Empire (even being built into the Taj Mahal). Turquoise was (and still is) used extensively in Tibet and Mongolia.  The Egyptian use of turquoise stretches back as far as the First Dynasty and possibly earlier; though most well-known pieces were recovered from

I’d like to invite everyone to the Women’s Council of Realtors holiday gala on December 11th at the Eldorado Hotel, doors open at 11:30am.  It is a luncheon gala, complete with a silent auction and fashion show.  We will be showing designs from local boutiques which will be modelled by our own Santa Fe realtors, me amongst them!  As my friends, I’d love to have you there for support.  I’m not much of a runway model, but I’m excited to give it a whirl (pun intended).  Tickets are $60 and for a good cause, the funds go to support the Solace Crisis Treatment Center which assists individuals who are in crisis or suffering from trauma.  You can purchase tickets here: http://www.wcrsantafe.org/2018gala/.  I hope to see you there!

One of my favourite places near Santa Fe is the historic Rancho Encantado, or Enchanted Ranch.  I grew up spending every New Year’s Eve at the Ranch with its gracious and inspiring owner Betty Egan.  It was also a preferred dinner post for my family and eventually became the site of my first employment and my sister’s wedding. I worked for the ranch as a wrangler, taking “dudes” out for horseback rides. I have many hilarious stories I could share, but one of the best was the day about 20 horses stampeded down the trail back to the stable.  As we reached the front gates, the horses sailed over them and charged up the main drive to the great surprise of the guests.  It was quite a harrowing sight!


Rancho Encantado‘s history is truly special, dating
