Embudo Pumps

 Embudo Station is a village right on the Rio Grande River, mid-way between Santa Fe and Taos.  The “Classical Gas Museum” is one of the local attractions there.  Thank goodness for people who treasure our cultural artifacts.  This place is a haven for everything pertaining to 50’s vintage (and older) gas stations.  Don’t these pumps look like a group of people gathered to have a visit.  Lookit that one guy  leaning on his shovel!

The Main Drag, Las Vegas, New Mexico

Don’t you just love the old main streets, especially in the American west?  Las Vegas, New Mexico, just an hour northeast of Santa Fe, is famous for it’s beautiful old buildings, but like so many small towns, there’s a kind of deserted feeling about the place. It makes me nostalgic for the days when little towns like this were bustling, and the plains were as yet not strewn with interstates, malls and Walmarts; a time when optimism about the future defined our collective psyche.  SOLD

Marigolds @ Marigold Gallery



One of the prettiest galleries in Santa Fe is the Marigold Gallery on Canyon Road.  It has a steep brick stairway up to an ancient blue shuttered adobe, with these big, shiny blue pots full of flowers.  The interior is cozy & rustic, with quirky narrow rooms and thick, uneven adobe walls.  The windows have wobbly old glass, and look out onto more adobe walls & gardens.  It’s an enchanting place and it’s full of light and magical treasures of art.  If you find yourself in Santa Fe, be sure to visit.
