I Collect: {Tooled Leather}

Full disclaimer – these tooled things are my best friend’s.  But I want them.  I need them.  In fact, they have inspired my own collection (of two purses).  Tooled leather evokes an image of the West, the old West, thoughts of Annie Oakley, the Marlboro Man, and endless horizons and layers of Mountains and horses, and well … the list could go on and on.

We all know that guy, that crusty old codger, who wore a belt with his name on it, that just blended into his waistline. Harry.  Larry.  Bob.  But these pieces are modern updates to Bob’s belt.  Only they aren’t modern – they are vintage, and they are made modern by the women who carry them.   And that is what makes them inspiring.IMG_5110IMG_5112IMG_5106
