Saddle Up



Ever since I was a kid, I've been into horseshoes.  Mainly for reasons relating to my Papa Honey (that's seriously what we called my grandpa) and also really because they're just cool. Everything about these designs has me a little weak in the knees, especially the clever use of horseshoes in the wedding photos.  Oh and the stationary.  Man, I love the stationary.

And horse things in general really appeal to me, cowboy boots, hats and really great dresses to match - it's all great.  Especially when you're having fun while wearing it - how cute is this little girl?!


And these women really know how to rock the hat, don't you think?  Do you sport the cowboy look ever?  All of my bridesmaids wore cowboy boots to our wedding and I loved it.

Love this! My high school mascot was mule and for sports they used to give us painted horse shoes for good luck and awards...horse shoes hold a special place in my heart :)

I just love this! While I find I still struggle to pull off a cowboy hat or boots, my Texan hasn't given up on me yet! And besides, I can still enjoy him in them!

I have horse shoe earrings- I've had them since I was ten when my aunt brought them back from a trip to Vegas-

I love the earrings. I remember wanting to get a horseshoe when I was younger for good luck, but I don't think I ever found one.

Aw, love that your love of horseshoes stems from your grandpa. That explains my love of accordions, so I definitely get it.

Love that you called your papa "Papa honey." He sounds like a sweet old man.

I totally cannot pull of a cowgirl look - I have some great boots but I never wear them, feels a little false in suburbia...

Plus, it is said that a horseshoe (a necklace pendant for instance) brings luck. :)Ada

I got the boots but not the hat - definitely a good look even for Inner London! And a horseshoe is a must for good luck I think!:o)
