Impromptu Field Trip

One of the best things about hs is the fun we have on Hubster's day off. He has Friday's off, so we hang. Last Friday, Hubster needed a piece of leather, so we went to the Tandy leather store and lo and behold, they had a museum in the store! My mom used to do some really beautiful leatherwork, so I was glad I brought the camera to show some of the incredible art we saw.

This immediately caught my attention:

Yes, that is all leather.

It was too big to fit in my purse, or it would have come home with me...

Not a fan of the silver stitching, but LOOOOVE the birds.

I *need* the pheasant billfold for Hubster...how awesome is that thing?

If you don't think this didn't make me want to build something and cover it in giraffe printed cowhide...well, you'd be wrong.

It made for a fun afternoon.
