My Special Montana Cabin

This is my very own special Montana cabin. Have been photographing it for over a decade. It is a lovely little cabin, but the elements are beginning to take their toll. I yearn to put a new little roof on it so it can live on ~  in all it’s splendor. It may be tiny, but it […]

Vintage Cowgirl Postcards

I love vintage postcards. The older the better. Most of my postcard collection is of anchors. The pretty ones with flowers and a little anchor tucked away somewhere on the card. My love of the anchor comes from my love of the Delta Gamma anchor which is one of our Delta Gammas symbols. I also love kitten and […]

Weekend Cowgirl is Busy Decorating

Fall is in the air for the first time this week! We have actually had four days where it was not over 100 degrees and that is reason enough to rejoice and pull out the fall decorations. Weekend Cowgirl is also ready for change and in the next few weeks you will notice fabulous design changes […]

Wordless Wednesday

Received this vintage postcard last year. I am crazy about donkey’s and loved this old card…

Wordless Wednesday

We don’t have chickens so re-purposed this old vintage chicken feeder as a bird feeder. It works great for feeding the birds and adds lots of personality to our oak grove. What items do you re-purpose?

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year. Hope everyone is having a relaxing day full of family, football and food. Here’s hoping for many blessings in 2012. This 1910 vintage postcard is part of my vintage anchor postcard collection. I love vintage postcards and this one is a beauty. I love viewing a snapshot from past from this pretty card.

Moss Covered Barn

I found this barn on a day trip in Montana. It was in an Amish area, but not sure Amish lived here. This barn was one of my favorites. It definitely has that old weathered look which is so appealing to someone who finds value in old things. This beautiful barn roof is beginning to […]

Vintage Beatty Galvanized Tub

One of my favorite things around the farm is lots of old galvanized pieces. I love the way galvanized pieces look and they are always have many fun possibilities. I use lots of old pieces for planting or use tubs for just putting “junk” in before I come into the house. Someday I will tell a funny […]

New Farmhouse Goodies

Look at the cute goodies my good friend sent me! Cannot wait to put this darling cowgirl switch-plate up! How adorable is it? This image is taken from a vintage postcard. It is definitely Weekend Cowgirl worthy! She also sent this precious vintage western hankie. It is so darn cute. I think it will end up being […]

The Little Things…

It really is the little things that stick with you. The important things in life, of course, are not really material things. It is family, friends, pets that give our lives totally meaning. In the end you will not be thinking about that special car you owned, but rather, I imagine it will be all […]

Vintage Ghost Signs

I am a huge fan of the beauty of old vintage building advertising (some call them ghost signs). You can find the most wonderful ads and artwork on old buildings in small town America. I am adding this to my 2011 travel list of special things to photograph. I hope this spring I can hit the country […]

Cherry Apple Red

Found both of these trucks in the same little country town. I really love the old 40s and 50s vintage trucks. Spotted the white one in front of a restaurant and the other in front of a church. Do not know who owns them, but know I wish I did. Driving around the farm would take on […]

This Truck is Stylin’

Imagine owning this beautiful vintage truck and cruising down the highway! How much fun would that be? Spotted this antique truck in Whitefish, Montana this summer. Wow, I love the color and love the truck. Cowboy and I would look pretty cool riding to town in this!

Country Antique Fair

Cowboy took me to a neighboring town for an antique fair in May. He would have rather been shot…really! This event had been highly publicized so I was dying  to see the antique dealers that were participating. The town is small and  I was not sure what to expect, but it was a fabulous and successful antique show. Huge white tents had been erected and […]
