Western Pieces!

Lately I've gotten three requests to make western pieces. So I have decided to offer a line of western pendants and night lights. I already had a cowboy night light and now I have designed a cowgirl one as well.

Here are a few of the pendants I have for the line so far.

This pendant is reversible, one side with an initial...
border="0" alt=""id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5282261534459535490" />

...and the other side reads "cowgirl".

The final pendant in the collection so far, is this cowboy on a wild bronc.

This pendant is also reversible and the other side reads "Ride 'em Cowboy!".

I will be listing them on etsy very stayed tuned!

A New Night Light...Little Cottage

Just wanted to share a new night light that I've created. I had been wanting to make one in the shape of a little house for some time now, and finally got around to getting one completed. I am very pleased at how this one turned out, and I would like to create more like it...what do you think of it?

P.S. If you are interested in this little cottage light it is for sale...just contact me!

A Dying Town.

A Dying Town

In the empty Town park no children for to play
This surely is a dying Town it has known a better day
A place of little commerce the facts they never lie
The ageing population here will grow old and die.

The young people keep leaving for places far away
There are no jobs worth talking of to keep them here to stay
A Town with few young people is a Town in decay
Two decades from a ghost Town it would be fair to say.

No smoke from factory chimneys for to pollute the air
A healthy environment to live in and such places are rare
But in a healthy place to live in businesses are closing down
To be once a place of commerce is it's one claim to renown.

An old Town off of the highway it's better days long gone
With an ageing population time on them ticking on
Many of them in their fifties with thinning silver hair
And the young people keep leaving their future is elsewhere.

Poem by ~
Francis Duggan


Can my town be saved? It is not looking that way! I hope, I hope.

At the Fair

This weekend we enjoyed the Kiowa County Fair, and it got me reminiscing about my youth. I found this picture of my bother, sisters and I at the Sand & Sage fair in 1984! We were quite the crew. I am 5 years old in this photo, my sister Hannah is 4, my brother Dusty just turned 3 and my youngest sister Abby is 1. We attended the fair every year and when we got old enough we joined 4-H and each of us showed 2 sheep each! My mom must of been crazy, because not only was she raising all 4 of us kids on her own (my dad drowned when I was only 5) she also had 8 sheep to worry about each year. Sheep take quite a lot of work have to not only feed and water them every day, you have keep them sheared and take them on walks each day! When the fair would roll around I always thought I was ready to be done with all of the chores they involved, yet after I showed them and sold them, I would sit in their pen and cry. Oh goodness...that was so long ago and what wonderful memories I still hold from all of the fairs I attended!
