The horseshoe napkin holder..I welded and painted…it was my first time to weld alone.  I have since made a horse shoe wreath, but I need to paint it.

011 The belt buckle is an authentic Texas Ranger Belt Buckle.  The round item lying on the knife with Hilbrich showing was made by inmates in Texas.

The Indian carving was purchased at the Star Drugstore in Galveston.  The owner’s Aunt does the carvings.

Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment.

Nice collection and love that you are welding...now that's a real cowgirl.
Scrolled down to see what you've been up to and those square plates with the pink roses sure are purdy.
How we get sunshine today as promised last night on the news.
Warm Blessings ;-)

Your western things are awsome. My daughter loves the western theme in her home, she would go nuts over the things you have shown today.
And I love the idea of welding. I told my son I would love to learn. Is it hard?
Hope you have a great day.
Hugs, Pat

Hi Barbara...

My friend, I am so impressed that you know how to weld...that's awesome! I love your horseshoe napkin holder and would love to see your wreath! Wow!!! Ohhh my, this is really a beautiful vignette, my friend...and so interesting too! The carved Indian is simply fabulous...what a treasure! Ohhh...to be so talented! I loved the way you displayed the western memoriabilia under the cloche...I bet that it's a real conversation piece! Thank you so much for sharing your goodies with us, my friend!

Also wanted to thank you for coming by for a visit in my Tea Rose bedroom! That's so awesome that we share the same bedding! I have had it for about 3 yrs. now (I think) and never tire of it...I just love it! Would love to see your pretty lake house guestroom sometime!

Warmest wishes,

Wow, that belt buckle is amazing! I need to get some big glass domes to display items, otherwise, they "walk away" with the cats!

I am so impressed that YOU welded a horseshoe, Barbara! WOW! And I love your treasures. It's fun to see what everyone collects. I have a distant cousin whose uncles were Texas Rangers. They're the best! :-)
