Silent Sunday

I like the idea of posting a picture with no words at all...just let the pic speak for itself...

I've been following a few blogs lately that have a "Wordless Wednesday" pic... so I thought I'd borrow their idea, but do mine on Sundays... (thanks for the inspiration -- you know who you are!) Next week's pic will have no words. Enjoy!

Snow in the Desert

The rest of the country has been getting hit with snowstorms, so I guess it is our turn! Although, you can hardly call this a "storm", but it is snowing here, which only happens once or twice a year.Bandit came off a ranch in Wyoming, so I'm sure he knows what the white stuff is!
Piper peeks out from under her shade cover....
while Gerty peers out from her house and Valentine, always the curious one, ventures out to check it out.

We'll enjoy the snow while it lasts...which will probably only be until tomorrow!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Piper was pretty cooperative with the Santa hat, unlike the others who knew what was coming and ran the other way!
She's definitely getting big! Lots more growing to do, though, since she is only 1 year 9 months old. Hopefully at this time next year I'll be riding her a little bit!

Happy Holidays From Our Family To Yours!

This year I had Mary of Mary Richmond Design create a Christmas card for us with all of our animals. I e-mailed pics of everyone to her and she took it from there. She did a GREAT job! Horses, goats, dogs, bunnies, right down to the chickens, everyone is here with their santa hats on. (Bandit, Phoenix, Piper, Sassy, Sandie, Snuffy, Angel, "chickens", Ginger, Digger, Sandie, Patches, Nutmeg, Turbo and Bulldog).

We all wish you a Very Merry Christmas!

Last Minute Shopping

Christmas is just one week away! Wow. If you're anything like me, this year Christmas really snuck up on you. Still have gifts to buy and mail out? I'm offering $1.00 Priority Mail shipping through Friday night (although I can't guarantee delivery, gifts should arrive by Wednesday). I will also gift wrap your purchase for free!

Not sure what to buy? I also offer gift certificates in the denomination of your choice. You can purchase them through my Etsy shop or go to the PayPal link on the right sidebar. I will send the gift certificate through the mail and if you wish, e-mail your recipient that the certificate is coming. How easy is that?

I bet you know someone who would love one of these cuffs from my Cowgirl Cuff collection!

Happy Shopping!

O Christmas Tree

Finally, the tree is up AND decorated! Come on in and have a look...
Naturally, our tree is decorated in western style with a mix of ornaments featuring our animals.

No tree is complete without at least one cowgirl ornament....

And this cowboy Santa with his Christmas foal is so sweet!

Had to add Lee's "Gunny Claus" ornament... (he's a retired Marine Gunnery Sgt)

This ornament is made from an original oil painting of our bunnies. Charlotte, of CharlottesWebArt created this masterpiece!

This is Sandie. She's been gone for a few years now, but is still with us in spirit! She lived a good long life, nearly 16 years...

Happy Holidays everyone!

Calling All Bunny Lovers!

Can you handle the cuteness??? I uploaded a new slide show of the bunnies. Scroll all the way to the bottom -- nothin' but bunnies. Pics of the whole gang. Enjoy!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

OK, maybe not a lot. Just a little. I have the tree up, lights are on it, but no ornaments yet. And no stockings up. Hopefully today or this evening I can get to that! The weather has been colder, so that helps a little with the holiday spirit. Christmas has really snuck up on me this year. Gotta get it in gear!
At least the animals have the right idea!
Happy Holidays Everyone!

Heartland Rabbit Rescue

As anyone can tell from reading my blog, animals are a big part of my life. I have adopted or rescued numerous animals and even though we have nearly reached our limit on bringing in any new animals, I think it is important to continue to support the efforts of rescue organizations.

One goal of my business plan is to donate 10% of my Etsy sales to various animal rescue groups. I do have my favorites and usually I like to donate to a group that is local, but I found Heartland Rabbit Rescue's site and blog and have been following it ever since. This month I am making a donation to their group by sponsoring one of their special needs rabbits.This is Hope. She was brought to Heartland Rabbit Rescue after being abandoned at a city shelter. She had weepy eyes due to a possible pasteurella infection and later developed signs of encephalitozoon cuniculi, which causes uncontrollable rolling and head tilt. Fortunately, her condition has improved, although she will always have the head tilt.

I hope that my donation will help with her care and that of the other bunnies waiting for their forever loving homes at Heartland Rabbit Rescue.

A Big Cowgirl Thanks!

To all my friends, family, blog pals, new customers and repeat customers...
November was Heart of a Cowgirl's best month ever! I owe many thanks to everyone who has supported my dream, listened to my ramblings about growing my business, read my blog, gave moral support, and purchased my original creations! I tip my cowgirl hat to all of you!
