*  wish  *
my inspiration

Love these necklaces! It's perfect for me! It inspires me to work hard and dream. I paired the *wish* pendant necklace with a silver beaded necklace.

Keri and I went to Round Top, TX! We had so much fun shopping...especially at Gypsyville! I found these necklaces at Junk Gypsy!

twisted x

I am absolutely in love with these Twisted X boat shoes from South Texas Tack! My friend and I both bought a pair when were at South Texas Tack. We love them so much!

The neon yellow on the brown leather is so pretty! Looking forward to wearing them! So adorable. And, I might just have to buy another pair...

Farm Chick Favorite

historic fort worth, texas

On my way through Texas to visit a good cattle friend, I stopped at the Fort Worth Stockyards. Fort Worth, TX is one of my favorite places! It is so rich in cattle history. Being a cow chick...I love it! I adore walking on the bricks that pave the streets of the stockyards. There is so much history to appreciate!

Fort Worth Stockyards is such a fun place! And, I especially love to shop in the stockyards. The stores are so absolutely adorable! With my rustic farm chic style, I always find something to decorate my farm home.

mercury glass hearts

While walking through downtown cow town, I found these mercury glass hearts at Maverick Fine Western Wear. I think they are so cute! They look so pretty in the wooden bowl on my antique wash stand!

When I visit, I also like to relax and enjoy a local beer at the White Elephant Saloon.

Friday on the Farm

cows graze as the sun sets

As the sun sets, cows graze a snowy corn field. Our cows graze cornstalks after the field is harvested. It is always a beautiful and peaceful site. I have a blessed life.

Farm Chick Favorite

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

I found this adorable pillow on The Magnolia Market. Love it! With this pillow, I am ready for a winter wonderland in the country! It is perfect for my rustic farm home! The grain sack fabric goes with my rustic farm chic decor.

And I love this pillow so much, I bought one as a gift for my mom. Hope she enjoys it!
This pillow is fabulous as an accent pillow. Add some red, plaid, knitted, and cream faux fur...cozy. So charming! It will bring warmth to the home. I found a beautiful faux sheerling pillow at Pottery Barn! These pillows look amazing together. And to be even more warm and cozy, I found a fuzzy, cream throw at Target.

Grab a mug of hot cocoa, and this cute pillow to get cozy by the fireplace this Christmas!
