I've been dreading my first fatherless Father's Day, so today I decided to take a break from Breyerfest tack and make something just for myself. In this case, that something was a set of 1:9 scale Just About Horses magazines, which were created using one of Nichelle Jones'awesome printables.
That went well, so I was inspired to play with some of her other printable selections, specifically the mini bathing supplies. Nichelle made her bottles from polymer clay, but that seemed hard so I used a cut down dollhouse wine bottle instead.
This isn't entirely new territory for me. Long before I started this blog, I created a set of supplements using pre-made wooden tubs and labels cut from tack catalogs.
I have a surprisingly good selection of 1:9 scale bottles and containers leftover from that project. Eventually, I hope to pair all of these with more of Nichelle's nifty labels
Of course, that will have to wait until after Breyerfest!
This will be, far and away, the most tack I've ever had for sale at one time. If you're interested in adding a little bit of Braymere to your tack box, please stop by Clarion Holiday Inn North, room 220 at 7 PM on Thursday, July 13. All sales are first come, first serve, and I'm hoping for a fast sell out!
In the fall of the fall of 2012, Trillium's owner realized her lifelong dream of owning horse property... in Bennett. I was happy for her, but sad for me as that was just too long a drive. I took one last lesson on Trilli, gave her a big kiss and wished her a long and happy life.
Sadly, the her life, though happy, was not meant to be long. Two weeks ago, I ran into Trillium's owner at the Colorado Horse Park and learned that sad news that she had died from an aggressive form of cancer.
