Let’s do a little Shopping on this Sunday, shall we?!…


Well, it is Sunday and I just couldn’t help myself from clicking about…

You see, I received my Cowboys & Indians magazine (which I proceeded to rip apart) and found several items which led me to several other items… and then a few hours pass and I feel the need to tell you all!  So, I’m sharing some of the prize clicks of the day!

First of all, I want you to know that I have not one item of Western wear in my closet.  I don’t have any Western tack and my belt buckles are very subdued.  However, I’m in love with the imagery.  If Hubby would let us, we would live in a lodge-style log house filled with Western furniture and art.  I’d probably even hang chaps on the wall and sit a retired branding iron in the corner.  But, alas, I am stuck just dreaming of Western landscapes and overstuffed couches.

Ah well, I guess I’m forcing my picks on you … but I figure maybe some of my clicks will lead you to new and fabulous clicks of your own.


OK, I’ve spoken about Teresa before (link here) and nothing has changed in my love affair with her work…

This COFFEE TABLE BOOK is affordable and has Teresa Elliott's painting as the cover!

But lookey what I found!   You can now purchase this coffee table book that has her image on the cover!  Love that!  I think it would be a great Xmas gift, too.

The other wonderful news is that I found a gallery that sells limited edition prints!  Yay!

I found prints!! Click here!

So, for example, you could get this limited edition giclee print on canvas for far less than the original.

Or, you could get a print of the piece they used on the cover of the book!

If you wanted to check out the limited edition prints or the artist’s proofs, just click here.  Very cool.  Love this.

Here is a new original.  I’m throwing it into the mix just because I can’t help myself.  If you like her work, please go to her website and treat yourself.

A new original


I found this little tack shop somewhere on line and I thought that maybe I have some gems here…

–First, I love hand braided horse hair things.  Do you?  If so, you’ll really appreciate this fabulous headstall.  Here is the link to visit it up close.  I copied the description here:

Horsehair headstall

Horsehair headstall

Gorgeous prison made hand tied headstall. Made in 1995 the colors and workmanship on this headstall are simply outstanding! Rich, vibrant tones that speak of class and uniqueness are the basis for this work of art. The man-hours it takes to produce this type of quality is simply hard to comprehend. Ride it or make it part of your collection, either way it is “one of a kind!.” $1400.00

–They also had a used headstall that was very ‘old school’ and I kinda thought it was special for a very low price.  I thought it was unusual, worn in well, had traditional adornments and looked like it had a history.  Here are some pics and the link. I have the description:

Oldie but goodie

Handmade Headstall Two Marked Silver Mounted Buckles?This is a used handmade slide ear headstall with two silver mounted cart buckles. The headstall and buckles were made by Randy Arnold. Randy is a long time cowboy, trainer, and cutter out of Dawn, Texas. The headstall is made out of harness leather. The buckles are completely hand cut with no laser cut pieces. The buckles are steel mounted with engraved german silver. The buckles are marked with Randy’s mark R. There is some surface cracking in the leather but it still has a lot of use left in it. This was one of Randy’s early personal headstalls. This would be a nice headstall to use.


•    Headstall Length 35″ to 47″
•    Buckle Size 1 ¾ ” x 1 ¾”
•    Strap Width 5/8″
Only 1 in stock. $139.50

— I loved this braided key fob. I would get this, too, if I had the somolians.

Hand braided key ring - nice!

Rawhide Hondo Key Fob?This is cowboy cool! Hand braided by Mike Beaver who is one of the best braiders in the country, this rawhide hondo key fob is the ultimate in cowboy hip! The quality of Mike’s braiding is a thing to behold. This piece of rawhide legend is unique, useful and just plain fun to have in your pocket! You won’t find anything like this out on the range. Limited supply $150.00

–While I was in the used but not abused area, I saw these stirrups.  If I was in the market, I’d totally get these.  I love a wider foot pad and I like Ox Bow style.  And, I don’t ever see them like this.  I read about them and they are at least 30 years old.  Hmmmm.  Cool.  They look a little narrow but I didn’t call to get the sizes.  But, if they could only talk… Another bit of history.  Here is the description:

Very cool, old stirrups

Nickel Plated Diablo 2’ Tread Oxbow Stirrups These are an original pair of stirrups that come off a pair of tapaderos with Visalia silver I bought 30 years ago, they are in mint condition and have leather wear guards. $150. Currently at Beckman’s Saddle Shop, in Pendleton, OR

–Next I came upon some hand done silver earrings in a shape I hadn’t seen often.  And, bonus, they were relatively inexpensive ($82)!

Something different...

Sterling Sliver Engraved Teardrop Earring Posts ?This pair of sterling silver antiqued earrings is the last pair of this style made by the Hiram West Company. They are fully engraved and 1 7/8 inches long. These are hand made with great attention to detail. $82.00

–The last few little treats on this particular website were these pipe rail mounted saddle rack and bridle hook.  I don’t have a round pen, but if I did, I bet these would come in handy.  They weren’t expensive, only $45 and $68 respectively.   I’m not sure if these are common knowledge, but I had not seen them before.  Here is the descriptor:

Convenient Bridle & Saddle Racks: Made of the same galvanized round pipe material as the pens. They are portable and hang right on the panels. The bridle rack holds up 5 bridles. The racks are a great helper to hold or hang your equipment on & keeps your tack & saddle out of the dirt!  46.50, 67.50.  Please Call For Shipping Cost For Saddle & Bridle Racks Before Ordering. Shipping Cost May Vary. 509.952.3188


I found this website that had TONS of tack and articles of interest.  I actually gave up searching through it because I got tired.  And for me, that is saying a lot!  Anyway, I found a huge array of cuffs.  You know, wide banded bracelets.  These are in leather.  I liked this one the best but there are many and they aren’t that expensive.

One of many cuffs!


Leather Christmas stockings! Click to see more!

What a concept!   These are different, eh?  Every year I try to find one unusual stocking to add to my collection.  This is a great find for me!

Another of the many styles!

There were many to choose from and I just picked three here.  The prices are a bit less than most unusual stockings (only $75) and I thought they would be a nice addition to any mantle, especially in a horse home.  I guess I liked that they weren’t too ‘cute’.  I don’t like ‘cute’.  Here is the link so you can see all the different models.

And another!


I saw an ad for her work in Cowboys and Indians magazine.

So interesting... Julia Lucich

I wasn’t sure how I felt about it but knew I was attracted…  So, I went to the site and saw several pieces that nudged me in a good way.  Here is the link.  What do you think?

This is called, "A Party Line"...

Artist TERESA ELLIOTT. You will never look at a cow the same way again.

Since I’ve received so many sad emails from readers about all the heavy news surrounding the Mustangs and the poor abandoned horses at feedlots and all the unfortunate neglect and abuse cases, I’ve decided to continue on the happiest topics I can think of for this week.

(WE ARE ORDERING LG BRIDLES: We are ordering from Germany.  If you would like to get on the LG Bridle train, please click here and I will get your information.  Here is the original link for the LG Bridle.)

Today, I’m going to tell you how I stumbled upon the oil artist, Teresa Elliott.


I love this magazine for so many reasons.  But for me, mainly I love the magazine because it is a feast for your eyes — or my eyes, anyway.  I love the colors and the presentation.  I swear that sometimes I feel I could EAT the magazine.  Or maybe just put some of the pages in frames and up on walls.  I just love the color sensibility.

So, every month, I sit down with my new magazine and literally start ripping through it.  Yup, I tear out anything I find interesting and file it in my “things I find interesting” folder.  Then, when I have nothing in my mind to write about (like today…), I look through my folder and always find something.

About an hour ago I was looking through my folder for something cheery and I saw this photo of a painting called, “Baby Bull”.  I had ripped it out from one of the magazines a while back.  I decided to go find out about Teresa Elliott, the artist who was mentioned below the ad.


OMG.  You go to her website and you see this:

Obviously, the scale of her work is not pronounced in a tiny ad in a magazine.  Hubba Hubba!  OMG!  I would absolutely die for one of these huge painting.  Actually, I would die for one of these huge walls to put one of these huge painting…

Can you imagine this work in an incredible house somewhere in Wyoming or Montana?  Actually, I’d put it in my house wherever I lived if I had the space.  Wowsa!  This would be great in a Lodge or a hip furniture store or my house… did I say that already?  Oh, sorry.

Anyway, I kept reading through her website and I came upon her Bio.


She is from Texas and lives in West Texas now.  What I find really fun is that when she was first starting out, before she went to art school, Teresa was one of those ‘QUICK DRAW” artists at Six Flags.  Do you know what I mean?  They are the ones who set up in a little kiosk and draw caricatures of you and your family in black marker, really quickly.  Anyway, she did this to raise money for art school.

Can you imagine?  Who would ever think that this quick draw artist would create these incredible works later on?  See… goes to show you…don’t judge a book by its cover, eh?!

OK, another fun fact about her is that she was fascinated by the Longhorn cattle her father raised.  As a little girl, Teresa would stand on the fences watching all the cattle for hours.  She said the cows made her feel peaceful.  As she got older, Teresa said she would photograph them.  It is from these photographs that she creates her art.


Then I decided to look at the show which was featured in Cowboys and Indians magazine.  As I clicked through the 9 pieces, I saw that 7 of them were already sold.  Wow.  Good for Teresa to have such a successful show!

Well now maybe we all cannot afford such wonderful art.  But, we can sure afford to go see it, if we live in the area.  So, here is a schedule of her upcoming shows:

August 21-Sept. 4, 2010 – TEXAS TRADITIONS SHOW with Fresco Fine Art Publications at Heritage Auction Gallery, Dallas TX

Sept. 16 & 17 2010 – WESTERN VISIONS – National Museum of Wildlife Art, Jackson, WY

Sept. 24, 2010 – MINIATURES BY THE LAKE – Coeur d’ Alene Gallery, Coeur d’ Alene ID

October 1-24, 2010 – TEXAS

Cowboys and Indians did interview her and I have the link here.  You may want to check it out.    And, here is a link to her website.

I don’t know about you, but just looking at these has made me peaceful… just like she said.
