ROUND EM UP. . .MOVE EM OUT. . .
That's just what I did. . .Rounded up the 'CATTLE'. . .John's (huge #13) COWBOY BOOTS. . .and our COTTON. . .for a really FUN challenge. . .
A few weeks ago, I heard about the 'westerm decor challenge' by KING RANCH SADDLE SHOP. . .They sell COWBOY and COWGIRL BOOTS of every kind and style. . .It intrigued me. . .thinking that this would be an OPPORTUNITY to show how versatile The Country Farm Home is for changing themes. . .I had never considered Western but it had it's possibilities. . .and I did live in TEXAS years ago. . .
I put on my thinking cap. . .and started 'rounding up'. . .deciding that since my 'SMALL BUCKLE COWBOY' cousin was coming to visit. . .I could try my hand at OLD WESTERN STYLE for our luncheon.
What's a 'SMALL BUCKLE COWBOY' you ask?. . .It touches the little bit of COWBOY in you--with boots, western belt and blue jeans for instance. . .but nothing overly done. . .just like the cousin's small Ozark farm. . .not too many cattle. . .only one barn. . .a small ranch style house. . . His definition of a 'BIG BUCKLE COWBOY' is one who is a lot more serious about it than he is. . .For one thing, I bet no Big Buckle Cowboy names each of his COWS. . .My cousin did for years. . .
Thinking about that, I decided on a 'SMALL BUCKLE WESTERN STYLE' to decorate the keeping room. . .with a little FARMHOUSE thrown in for good measure. . .
He'll be so surprised when he walks in . . A table fit for any SMALL BUCKLE COWBOY. . .including juicy, grilled HAMBURGER STEAKS with. . .of course. . .COWBOY BEANS. . .
Looking forward to hitching up to the CHUCK WAGON in the next few days. . .
Two SMALL BUCKLE COWBOYS and one TEENY BUCKLE COWGIRL.
Good friends. . .Good food. . .Good Old Western Style. . .
How much better could it get?
