It was a perfect field trip to take with friends who had recently moved here from cold and frosty New England--on a sunny day we drove south to El Paso, Texas, to visit the El Paso Saddle Blanket Company, where you can wander through two acres of some pretty crazy stuff. You already saw the painted skulls and cowboy caskets in my last post, Enjoy Yourself; now, here is some more of what caught my eye.
|A vintage car, cowhide sofas...|
|One of a kind chairs...|
|Motorcycles with longhorn handlebars...|
|And saddle seats...|
|Lots of boots and jewelry and saddles and blankets...|
|And terribly tempting, though kitschy pieces...|
Come on, you know you'd love this in your living room--maybe next to a nice cowboy casket
just dripping with fringe and tooled leather!
We plan to go back, now that we have stopped reeling from all the amazing sights. I'm starting to think that I'd really like one of those painted skulls.
