Windmills have always held a special fascination for me - whether fabulously beautiful designs with a multitude of grilled blades or a tumbledown old relic rusting away on American prairies. I can not help myself. I must stop and gaze at every one I encounter - and listen while the wind gently nudges the blades into action. Now, thanks to a "gentle nudge" from Diane's 2014 PC Blog Hop, I have fashioned my very own windmills to sit on my mantle, hang on my holiday tree and to take their place at my "St. Nicholas table" in December.

Today, December 16th is the beginning of the 9 days of Las Posadas - a centuries old tradition in Mexico and in many towns and villages in New Mexico in which the search for "a room in the inn" is re-enacted every night until Christmas. Children and their parents wander through their neighborhood visiting home after home until finally they are welcomed in for delicious holiday treats and singing and sometimes breaking of a pinata.

Finally! My "frightful" trees have made the transition from Halloween table toppers to sparkly, snow covered winter holiday trees.
A couple layers of spray snow, a few weeks of obsessing and finally a liberal application of fine, snowy glitter transformed what began as fresh corn husks - into a winter wonderland of holiday prettiness.
