The ramblings of Mrs. Smith as she shops, decorates and anything else she deems funny!

I'm a little bit country....I'm a little bit rock~n~roll

Ok, Ok.....yes I am of the Donny and Marie Osmond era........What can I say? 

Just in case anyone was curious about me~Jody~aka Mrs. Smith, I will give you a little history of who I am....

I was born and raised in Southern California.....Nope, not blond.... I burn instead of tan.....grew up shopping at Kmart not Neiman Marcus..... Dad was a elementary school teacher....Mom was a mom and worked part time at an elementary school as the attendance lady.....

What's the point in all of this?

Well, most people don't think of cowboys and rodeos with Southern California.....
but my Dad was raised in Southern California on an egg ranch.

Yep, they raised chickens and sold eggs.....
By the time I was around the ranch had long been sold and now is covered with office buildings.

So when we would go on vacation in the summer we would go horseback riding and attend rodeos.....

My parents are big fans of the PBR (Professional Bull Riders).

Fast forward to the present.....I have lived in Northern California-Sacramento and Redding for 16 years.....

Red Bluff's rodeo is this month.....It's a big parents are going (oh yeah they moved to Redding 5 years ago after Dad retired-Mom was born and raised here). 

The point to this story?

Well, I have had several requests for something with cowgirls/western....
So I made 3 bottle cap pendants with cowgirls....
on sale now at my Etsy Shop...

and at my booth at the Oregon Street Antique Mall, Redding, CA....

So if you like stop on by and say HOWDY!

  2. What? Really? I never knew all that about your family! Very interesting! : )

  3. Hi Jody!
    Wow, those bottle cap pendants are adorable! I think you'll do really well with these, in fact, I'd like to do a future post on them if that's okay with you.

    Also, thank you so much for your comments on my last post, I really do value your feedback!

    Have a wonderful week!

  4. I think your Mom needs a special compensation to wear all three cowgirl necklaces to the rodeo Friday night. Humm, what do you think??? They are all so cute, can't chose!! Love, Mom

  5. I love the graphics you used for your bottle cap necklaces....too cute!
    It was fun getting to know a little bit about you.
    Have fun at the rodeo.


Love hearing what you think!!! Your comments are a source of encouragement!
