Cowgirl Style

Well, the scoop is I have started a new blog called "Cowgirl Style." My reason for starting it stemmed from a bad recent experience with paypal. It seems we feed this monster left and right, me with Ebay, my own website and Etsy. I thought, wouldn't it be nice to have a "no paypal" zone where I could peddle a few wares and keep the money in my own pocket. A simple way I thought was just to post some items on a blog, so the idea was born.
An idea born for one reason, it quickly turned into something bigger for me. As you all know I'm a vintage image cowgirl collector, obsessed. I'm a cowgirl admirer, and a cowgirl at heart, so selling is only a small part of what it is all about. The more I thought about it, the more I loved the idea of my own cowgirl blog.
There will be cowgirl photos, artwork, recipes, history, and just some whooping and holler'in and horse talk. From time to time I will post for sale some of my pre-owned cowgirl clothing {what I sell on ebay} and some altered art western duds, as well as my cowgirl creation accessories. Selected items will be showcased on Cowgirl Style first, BEFORE it goes to ebay, if unsold after five days. If someone wants something, you simply leave a comment and everyone will see its taken. Payments will be worked out when I confirm you really do want the item, so make sure I can find you, and if someone HAS to pay with paypal, they can plead with me. I will be opening a merchant account soon, to process credit cards, I need it for my upcoming art shows anyway.
You can window shop to your hearts content, and I'm happy with that too. I have fun putting outfits together, so its fun for me just to show you the photos ! Below are some past, sold items with my handpainted purses. Give me your thoughts, the good, the bad and the ugly ! Black Feather Farm blog will continue just as always.

Morning conversations...

If you are like me you talk to your animals alot, and every morning the conversation goes more or less like this....
Good morning Luna, are you ready to start the day & go to the barn?

Good morning Indi... lets get your oats big girl.

Yes Hannah, momma will throw your ball for you....

{As Bitsy tries to grab at Indi through the fence, growling, like she does every morning} No Bitsy, Indi is not what's for dinner...

The last question of the morning is of course for Tessa.... And what havoc will you be wreaking today ?

A growing ponys gotta nap !

Photo taggged by Jane at Jane Augustein - My Life in Pictures The rules are to pick the 6th photo folder and the 6th photo, post and blog about it, tag 6 others {or because I am a rule changer, I'll tag 3}This was the photo !
I got Indi when she was nine months old, and hadn't had her very long. Some family members came over to see her and she came right up like always. She then plopped right down and took a nap, while we stood there and talked over her. Thats my Indi, not a worry in the world....
I'm photo tagging Zan at Wild at Heart Farm

Thanks so much !

I recieved this very nice award from Zan at Wild at Heart Farm
She has a really great blog you will truly enjoy.
This award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his/her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary and personal values every day. {I copied that from Zan}
The rules for this award are to post the award with a link to the giver, and pass it on to up to fifteen other blogs, and let them know they were chosen.
I know many blogs who deserve this, I'm a little shy about passing these along so if I comment on your blog regularly, consider yourself awarded if you want to be !

My second award came from Awesome Ass Acres
You have to visit her fun blog and see her banner too !
I am supposed to post the award plus the presenters blog link, and list 5 things I'm addicted to: Piece of cake.... oh thats one.....
2. Laughing, I do alot of that !
3. I love creating art and making jewelry, which is good because I need food.
4. Horses & dogs,{+ all animals} I know shock and dismay, you had no clue whatsoever.
5. I am not going to say "you know who," even though I AM ADDICTED to "you know who," but since you are tired of hearing me go on about "you know who," instead, I will say old movies. If you have never seen "My Favorite Wife," with Cary Grant,or the ORIGINAL " Angels in the Outfield," I suggest you hunt down copies to enjoy, you can thank me later.
Thank you for awarding me !
