Holly in the Visitor Center
A purchase in the gift shop, we also purchased t-shirts and several of the Jade Tree plant cuttings from Miss O'Keeffe's plants

Please be seated, the dining room table, studio table and kitchen table are all planks of plywood which have been softened with a pale white wash and mellowed over these many years
Cups, saucers and bowls in the kitchen cabinet. My mom served us ice cream in the 1960's in those very same lotus shaped bowls, second shelf at right
Pots and pans in the kitchen

“O’Keeffe at Abiquiu” Myron Wood & Christine T Patten.
Horseshoe facing up to catch the luck (Miss O'Keeffe's wish for rainfall)
The one single book which O'Keeffe left on the coffee table. This book contains some of O'Keeffe's first thoughts in an interview about her paintings through the years, the book is a large format but a must for O'Keeffe fans.
The banco in O'Keeffe's living room has a niche for the vertebrae of a snake, there's also a sculpture of a snake with stones
The banco has been recreated recently in a passageway room at the O'Keeffe Museum, the book at top right is the catalogue from the Tate Modern retrospective
Herbs drying in the shepherds room
The table of gathered herbs in the shepherds room just off the kitchen. I may need to acquire a Black & White Buffalo Plaid bolt of cloth like this...
Central courtyard with walkway
Shelf of random objects
When a horseshoe is hung this way it is to pour luck onto visitors, facing upwards is to collect luck
These two Mayan pottery heads are embedded into the adobe walls in a passageway, they are on opposite sides I've put them together here for convenience. I'd never noticed them before.
Holly in the carport

My favorite, the Kachina Paintings at the O'Keeffe Museum
Large scale black sculpture in the garden at the O'Keeffe Research Center in Santa Fe
Looking over the wall at the O'Keeffe house. There's no need to only see the house from this view, book a tour sometime soon
