Western Night

The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum was full of people at the inaugural one night event hosted by members of the Persimmon Hill Associates. Prix de West and special invited artists brought their artwork to the Art Preview and Reception called “Small Works, Great Wonders.” People bid on the artwork and most of it was sold at the event.
The fixed price sale of art was originally set for November 30 but was re-scheduled for December 18th.

Santa Claus

When guests visit Judy and Tom Love, they enjoy seeing
all the Santa Claus figures throughout the house. The vast collection
shows all kinds and sizes of Santas. Many of the Santas have been
gifts from friends through the years and many of them have been
collected by the Loves.

It is an awesome Christmas sight!
