A Craft and a Horse Photo

Horse show enthusiast's treasure their ribbons because the ribbons tell the stories of victories ..and well ~ of a few defeats too. But either way, we never want to get rid of our memorable prizes...so in there lies the question of what to do with them?Here is a wonderful idea on how to keep and display a variety of treasures!

My oldest daughter Emily has quite the eye for photography and she took this photo. What you are looking at though - is my photo of her photo, so it is not nearly as beautiful as the one we have haning in our den. This is a picture of me and my former show horse named Ivan. Ivan taught me more than any horse I have ever owned and left a big hoof print on my heart! We were walking back to his stall after a class.

Good Evening Julie,
Wow, that is a beautiful wreath made with your ribbons. "THANK YOU" for sharing it with us. I enjoyed looking at the picture of you and your horse. You are quite a crafter as well. I wish I had that talent, but I don't. Take care my friend and have a great evening. May God Bless You and Yours.

Hugs,
Karen H.

Hello.I am so glad I found you! I came over from enchanting garden. When I saw your name in her list I wondered if Equus meant what I thought! I love the wreath. What an awesome way to show ribbons. I didn't finish reading I just had to stop and say hi. I just started blogging and will be adding some horse photos soon. Come over and visit. I know I'll have fun visiting you!
