Prairie Chic

Some of you may not know that I live in the Southwest.....New Mexico to be exact.   We live in eastern New Mexico (about 8 miles west of the Texas border) and the western side of New Mexico borders Arizona.
Prairie Chic is a very popular way to decorate here in New Mexico and it's also how we like to dress "in these parts"

I found a few Prairie items at the yard sales over the week end.    The first thing I want to show you is my violin.....it was hand made by an artisan in a small town near us.   I was lucky enough to be able to purchase it for $5!   I can't wait to paint it white.....or pink.....and  pile on some bling.
This pretty pink cowgirl hat will get plenty of bling added to it before it can be worn.     I bought a gorgeous pink  satin top and skirt.....here is the back of the top...it laces up...love it!
Here is the front of the top.....the skirt is plain and long.   
I added some of my hand made roses to give you an idea of how these rose boots will look after they get dressed up.....new laces and some glitter....
I also found some padded hangers,  two large pieces of lace,  and a wedding album.
This new, never used wedding album was only $1.....
This big bracelet was $2.....
Happy Trails!

  1. Penny,
    So interesting because as you know where I live in Pa., this is so NOT the style around here..... LOL!!
    My area still likes more of a Rustic Country look with a bit of Country Victorian.
    I love the top and skirt! Pretty!!

    Hugs,
    Deb

  7. I'm a born and bred TEXAN...West Texas, to be exact. We wear boots here, with short and long skirts/dresses..never with flowers on them...and never pink hats.lol....oh, bet if I got out and really looked, I might find a pink hat here in our town. One of the grands had pink TOPS on a pair of her boots.
    These surely go with your love of pink.....very pretty displayed in your pretty pink house. You did good at the sale.

  8. Love that hat and those boots are great!

  9. What wonderful finds! All the girly stuff. I have a really hard time with choosing a style. The think is I like everything I see. I think I have mostly traditional in my home........but a little french county, contemporary and shabby chic........see what I mean. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  10. Wow! What great finds. I love it all. That pink hat is adorable. I live in the west so this is all very common to me. Thanks for sharing. Karie

  12. Hi Penney! Oh my goodness, your post is fantastic. Those rose boots are to die for! The bracelet is beautiful too! You've combined two of my favorite things today - I love pink prairie chic and I'd like to live in New Mexico. We've spent our last two vacations in your neck of the woods. To a painter, the landscape is a paradise, and Santa Fe and Taos are an artist's haven. Have a great weekend! Hugs, Terri

I like to pile on the bling along with the cowgirl hats, boots and sweeping skirts. Fun!!! I love that pink hat and that lace-up top!!! And the sneakers.....oh, those sneakers!!!! What a find!!!!!!
