My Friends Have Always Been Cowgirls

My Friends Have Always Been Cowgirls

by Cheryl McMullen April 08, 2010 4 Comments

Oh, I love this little tee!  It has so many of my favorite things.  It started with a vintage photograph of Prairie Rose Henderson and went wild from there. I started doodling and ended up with:

  • "Play Nice Be Free" - because we all should
  • a guitar & musical notes - because I want to 'turn it up'
  • a Christian cross - because I love my LORD
  • horseshoes - because they are lucky when turned right side up
  • an appliqued missive -  My Friends Have Always Been Cowgirls
  • a funky lapel button with a big D
  • and Chinese calligraphy that says, "Jesus is LORD" - because I'm sending covert messages to our Chinese factory!
    Sometimes I really crack myself up!

    side note: The three cowgirls featured in this vintage photo are: (l to r) Kitty Canutt, Prairie Rose Henderson, and Ruth Roach, as photographed by Ralph Doubleday.   Prairie Rose was inducted into the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame in 2008.

    We obsess about squash blossoms as much as any gal, but have always wondered how they transformed from Native American adornment to must-have statement piece. Best of all, ours are now ON SALE.
