terrasnose 300x168 New to The Trail.......Being the owner of Santa Fe Trail Jewelry, I have little time to design works of jewelry let alone other things.  I love being around my  horses and dogs and this picture is one of those moments….not planned…that just happened.  One night, out at the barn, the sun had just set and I snapped this photo by mistake with my cell phone.  I have loved this picture  ever since because if you are around horses much, you know the experience of them being in your pocket sniffing for carrots and treats.  After many a long ride, sitting in a camp chair, this is often all you see is a nose in your face.  So it conjures up fond memories for me of having spent a good day in the saddle.

This will be a Limited Edition 12 x 12 Gallery Wrapped Canvas for sale ONLY at Santa Fe Trail Jewelry.  For more information  about “Terra Knows” call me at 719-481-0250.  Happy Trails!

billyray 300x218 A Tribute to Earl ScruggsI’m sad to hear that Earl Scruggs has passed away. CMA  47th  awards had a great tribute to him with Rascal Flats and Steve Martin. Earl Scruggs was a  brilliant musician and a good hearted man.  I met him many years ago and fondly remember Earl with my ex-husband, Billy Ray Lathum playing dueling banjos together on stage at the memorable Rainbow Music Hall in Denver. Those were the days my life was filled with music. To tie this all together I’ve added a pic here from a concert (late 70′s)with Jerry Mills on mandolin, John Hartford on fiddle, Billy Ray on banjo, John McKuen on banjo and Steve Martin (with dark hair!) on banjo.
