Horsing around (my neck!)
I have ridden a horse although it seems long ago. My sister rides, and jumps and has had a passion for ponies as long as I can remember. She trains young riders and has a home with a barn and paddocks on the property. Owning a horse, or horses, is a lot of work, not to mention the cost!
I have not ridden since, at 6 months pregnant, I was thrown off. I was shaken up but not hurt. (Baby was fine)
My idea of riding a horse now would involve a horse drawn carriage!
I found this Hermes scarf in a local consignment shop. I have no idea why it was there when I happened to pop in and browse.
It was a fortuitous find indeed!
Designed by Hubert de Watrigant, entitled "Real Escula Andaluza Del Arte Equestre."
The colors are vibrant, the classic hand rolled edging is superb. It truly is a work of art by an amazing artist, produced by experienced Hermes craftsmen and women with their dedication and high standards of quality.
I like to wrap this around my neck to add a splash of color to my simple white T and jeans.
It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must also know how to fall. -- Mexican proverb
What have you "fallen" for ?
Was it an expensive or frugal purchase and how do you feel about it?
I love a bargain or a fabulous find, luxe for less fits in the Humble Bungalow best!
