Wearing History Overalls 1940s farm and cowgirl style


On Saturday morning, the kids woke up very early in excitement to see the horses, Moonshine and Sunshine.

Moonshine and Sunshine belong to the previous home owner and since she just bought a bunch of feed, they are sticking around for a while until the feed is gone, which is wonderful because we get to enjoy their company. Some horses aren't very friendly but these babies are the sweetest horses I've ever met.

They are so gentle when the kids feed them snacks and Sunshine (the brown one) gives hugs in which she nuzzles up close to you and gives you a big lick.  They were both rescue horses and when they arrived here, they were very skinny and ill. Their mommy loves them dearly now and takes very good care of them. While my mom is babysitting, they are quite spoiled with carrots, apples and lots of petting.

Pj and I ventured out to the barn in the morning and talked the two of them to walk the property with us, snacking on some grasses along the way. I found some beautiful wildflowers growing in the pasture.  Sunshine stuck right by my side through our walk. Isn't she a dear?

Moonshine spotted a bunch of tadpoles living in her water trough.

I wore my Wearing History overalls, which made their debut in July. I love these overalls and hope to make a few more pairs this winter. My strawberry print blouse was originally a 1960s Penny's house coat. You know those frumpy cotton things you find in the sleepwear at thrift stores? I loved the cute print so I shortened it into a blouse and used the excess fabric I cut off to make sweet new puff sleeves.

  5. Your strawberry print blouse is too cute for words - much like the overalls, too, as well as the horses. I know just what you mean, not all horses have a friendly, sweet temperament by any means. It's such a joy when you encounter two like these beauties that are docile and well behaved.
