ABODE: Ranch Dressing
The blankets, the baskets, the original chimayo weavings, the barns, the teepees, the airstreams, the horses, the ranch-hands on staff, the cool n' clear Colorado air --- I'm hard-pressed to think up a better possible landing pad than Ralph Lauren's Double RL Ranch. And if Julia Child's kitchen has a spot in the Smithsonian, then I want Mr Lauren's carefully-curated collection of rare and wild Americana to be kept under lock and key too. Or at least kept in the family. I'm off to shovel snow and wrap the last of my gifts, but you can bet that tonight, once I'm wrapped up under the latest vintage Hudson's Bay blanket I found for five bucks I'll be dreaming about that damn yurt all night long.
