Ranch Home Decor

Do you ever take a look around your house and feel like you just need to add something new here and there? Or things have gotten just a little "too" worn in? I've been meaning to replace the throw pillows on the sofa for some time now...stuffing sticking out here and there.... they were a mess and time for them to go. So, I went shopping (on Etsy, of course) and found this great handmade leather pillow from Thunder Moon Designs ~I love the tooled leather on the star and corners. I bought just the pillow cover and used my own pillow form (didn't want to throw out the ENTIRE old pillow!)

Ellen, the seamstress behind Thunder Moon Designs, also makes these great leather wall hangings. I really dig these.

I almost bought this pair of pillows, too. Cute!
How about an ostrich longhorn?
Love this leather rose one, as well. Really unique.
Ellen's pillows are really beautiful and the quality is top notch. She has many more designs in her Etsy shop. If you see something you like but want it in another color she will gladly custom sew something just for you.
Buying something from a real live person is so much better than ordering from a catalog!

Great pillows! Yes, I need to do a few things too. We have been in our little place a year now, and I need to add a few new touches.

I love ranch decor! It I had the money, I'd probably decorate my whole house in ranch!

So your last 2 posts have been about decorating...are you nesting???LOL I love the pillows you selected. I think pillows are the easiest way to spruce up a room. That "rose" pillow caught my eye too!!!

I love the cowboy hats and boots pillows. My DH and I love ranch home/Texas decor. When we redid our living room a couple of years ago, he took all my metal things (star,lizards, boots, horseshoes, etc. for my mosaics) and used them on the walls for decorations. I told him if we ever moved they were all coming down to go with me back to being used for mosaics. LOL

Wow, great finds! I love the pillows, and the wall-hangings. Such creative people out there. I hope to get more "ranch home decor" when I actually get a ranch home...I'm not giving up the dream! ;)
