Finishing Touches

Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE  rustic, western cowboy/cowgirl & indian decor. That is the theme throughout my home, much to my daughter, Shantel’s, dismay. She hates western anything.

I have been looking for just the right window treatment to finish off my livingroom windows ever since we moved into our new home in April 2012. I don’t like a heavy full drape, I just like blinds with just the right valence to set them off. I found exactly what I wanted at my favorite on-line western store,, but they were a bit more than I wanted to pay, and since I don’t have any sewing skills to make them myself…, I just kept looking, and hoping I would find something cheaper that would be equally as exciting to me.

Well, I guess it’s true what “they” say about “anything worth having is worth waiting for…” Because imagine my surprise, and pure delight, when the expensive valances I wanted to begin with went on sale for half price.. Bonus!!!

Look how perfect these are for my home and life style. They are called Spirit Horse Adobe Valence…and I absolutely LOVE them.


Since I love horses, and turquoise is my favorite color, nothing could have been more perfect for me. Happy be good to myself day ME!


I don’t know if turquoise is considered a happy color or not…all I know is when I see turquoise, it makes me happy, so I like to have accents of turquoise around me in every room.


What’s your happy color?


Now that the living room is finished, I’m on to dreaming about, and waiting for, this beautiful Skystone Turquoise Desert Bedding Collection to go on sale at LoneStar Western I fell in love with it the minute I saw it and I’ve just gotta have it for our master bedroom don’t you think?


I mean, what cowgirl wouldn’t love to have that beautiful gem on her king size bed? Right?

Stay Tuned!

    They are absolutely right for your livingroom. You home looks so neat. I know how Tammy likes horses and she has a website she goes on for her boots and things for her horses. I love some of the things on there. She has a bridle for the horse that is leopard print and that horse really looks classy. I think you need that bed ensemble for the king size bed too. Also your bunnies are so cute. Down with the Valentine’s and up with a little green shamrock and Easter. Have a great weekend. Love you guys.
