The Red Prince Mare

I feel like I’m always apologizing for my absences on here – sorry friends! It’s been a busy summer, and it has continued into the fall. All is well here, but with work, the farm, and my animals, I haven’t had a lot of time to blog. Also – I’ve been riding more (woo!), so […]

I came across equestrian artist, Tim Olden, on Instagram, where everything wonderful seems to reside. Right now Tim is perfecting his equestrian art in the watercolor medium, but he is hoping to move on to acrylic soon. Below you will find his Q&A as well as quite a few lovely portraits. I was lucky enough […]

Atlanta Hall

If you read Horse & Style Magazine’s Mar/Apr issue, you will remember my ‘Horse & Style: Home’ feature, Atlanta Hall.

Below are a variety of photos that did not make […]

Sporting Artist – Franklin Voss

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, then it’s probably no secret that I love sporting art. “Sporting art is a relatively modern term. It is traditionally understood to refer to a genre of art that encompasses country pursuits, predominantly in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The art documents the popular rural […]

Stymie Print

If you’ve followed this blog for a bit, then you might remember a few of the posts I did on equestrian artist Milton Menasco.

An Equestrian Mudroom

I have shared some pictures of my equestrian-themed mudroom on Instagram, but I don’t believe I’ve ever blogged about it. I recently gave it a tremendous cleaning (lots of muddy paw prints abounded!), and restyled my shelf. I love how it came out! I guess I shouldn’t say it’s “equestrian-themed” as the room just became […]

Katie Kime Wallpaper

A friend recently sent me a link to this equestrian-patterned wallpaper by Katie Kime. It’s funny because I’ve been thinking about adding wallpaper into the mix at my fixer upper! Specifically, I think a fun, vibrant print would work well as an accent wall in my bedroom or in a bathroom. I’ve never used wallpaper […]

Living Room Bar Cart

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, then you know that I’m a yard sale junkie. I had been on the lookout for a bar cart at yard and garage sales for quite some time, but I wasn’t having any luck. You also know that with my horses and my home renovations, it’s […]
