A little bit

My husband hung my horseshoe over the door of my home office.
It is where I spend lots of my time. Everytime I see it I smile. A little bit of Cowgirl style is making its way into my decorating.

In one of my Cowboy books I saw this chair and footstool done by Anne Baird.
On my it is wonderful. I looked at her web site. Her work is gorgeous.
I would gladly give up my desk chair for one of her chairs!
Amazing useable art. Cowgirl style that has won my heart.
Slowly, little bit by little bit,  I will bring in Cowgirl things.
My black Stetson is on a hat stand on my dresser.
She looks so smart perched up, reflecting in my mirror. I continue to wear her each day when I write at the kitchen table. I feel empowered when I put my hat on.  It is a fast way to remind myself I can do what ever I set my mind to!

In the old days Kansas was known as the Cowboy State.
Abilene, Kansas, was the first cowtown.

I enjoy history.

 Some Cowboy cooking is going on in my kitchen.

We have eggs twice a week.
We are using the egg shells in our coffee.

I am fixing Sweet Potato Hash Browns
for our Christmas brunch.

 I will have to check to see if I have any Tabasco sauce.

When I was saying goodbye to my neighbor,
she is moving to Texas,
I mentioned the Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame.
I told her how I have found my inner Cowgirl.
She understood. She had found hers in 2000.
She needed the spunk and the can do attitude of the Cowgirl.
She became an urban chrome Cowgirl and bought a motorcycle.
She even joined an all girl motorcycle group.
She left me a ceramic little boot on my front porch.
A bit of encouragement and a welcome to the Sisterhood.
Cowgirls are everywhere!

We come in all shapes and sizes.
We come with all sorts of styles.
I am a crystal Cowgirl.

I have noticed that I am choosing
Cowgirl motif more often.
I needed to mend a little cotton top.
I picked out the Cowgirl boots as my patch.
I like wearing my boots on my sleeve.

I am smitten with Cowgirl fashion.
I am looking forward to buying
a pair black jeans.

Katy Keene had a
great Cowgirl outfit!


  1. I love all of this cowgirl business. That you are dressing the part is very important- it really helps embody the ideals you want in your life.
    Have you thought about making a master blog where you could post links to the latest posts on all your pages? I don't want to miss anything.
    Blessings to you in the New Year,

  2. You are having too much fun Cowgirl. Yahooooo

  3. Dear Claire
    I shall ask my daughter to help me with the idea of a master blog. Q's Corner is my main blog and I do have links on it for all the other blogs except Spirit of the Cowgirl. My daughter is my it girl and her computer is down! Once she is up and running again I will ask her to link Spirit of the Cowgirl on Q's Corner. Q's Corner is a very old blog and to do some things I have to write code.... No idea how to do that!
    Thanks so much for being part of Spirit of the Cowgirl.
    Happy Trails,

  4. Dear Lisa,
    Cowgirln' is the best. I now can have fun even when the job is somewhat miserable. A spoonful of Cowgirl and all is good!
    Happy trails,
