Art Update


2009 is going to be a year for new and exciting things for Riding Couture. For starters, I am giving the website an overhaul. I just posted new artwork that I commissioned from my favorite artist, Shano. Next I need to tackle the website banner. I'm still mystified at what to do. I might just keep it simple. I want it to coordinate with the new artwork without competing. Hmm...

As you can see, Penny is the star of the show. She would have it no other way.

Horse Head Anyone?



I'm just messing around with images and came up with this little number. If I get enough liking out of it, perhaps I'll print to a t-shirt. I was thinking black tee with blue image. Any votes? I could do black tee with pink frame and horse....or any color, really.

I consider myself a designer t-shirt collector, so I just assume everyone else is too and can NEVER have enough....I feel the same way about shoes and black power suits.

Please comment! I bet you can't guess what my favorite color is...

Oh, and P.S., the 20th person to follow me on my blog wins a "FREE" Diva Style tee. It's on my t-shirt page, the one with the girl and the pony. Hurry!

These Boots Were Made For Ridin'



Well, it's that time of year again, that time of year when I am busy trying to come up with a few new t-shirt designs. I just love, Love, LOVE the stiletto boots. Here is one design I'm tossing around....any comments?

Penny thought that it needed more Bling, so I added a few sparkles.

Bangs Are In!

Who says? I say. Yeah me, Penny the pony. You all just wish you could have gorgeous, thick, blunt bangs like me, don't you? Melonie tries all the time, but burns them off with her flat iron, then complains to her hairdresser and asks if she can get bang extensions. She'd kill me if she knew I was telling you all this, but....whatever, she's my biggest fan and I do what I want.

Anyway, Happy New Year! I think Riding Couture has a lot in store for 2009. Melonie would tell you all herself, but we encountered a snow storm a week before Christmas (snow almost deeper than me) and she had to actually man the fort and take care of the farm the entire time. I even heard that the power went out on Christmas morning when she was opening her presents (hee, hee).

She's usually all dolled up riding my big palomino brothers around in circles, but NOPE, not this time. She looked ridiculous out there in these hideous camouflaged pants (I don't know why she wears these things, but it's true), pom-pom hat that didn't match, no lipstick, leopard gloves...I actually felt a little sorry for her. I mean, I've never seen her break soooo many fashion faux pas in such a short amount of time. I've been shaking my head from side to side for weeks in wonder. Oh, well, it's almost over and life is just about back to business as usual. She is back to wearing lipstick and showed me this new lip pen she got that stains your lips so you only need to wear lip gloss...that's my girl!

I heard that the website is going through an overhaul, too. Apparently Melonie hired her favorite illustrator to do a new piece that features guess who, ME, as the center of attention. And guess what? It's going to be on the opening page. I knew I would make it big one day. It's my time to Glow!

She also mentioned some new designs she thought up as she was shoveling the farrier out of the driveway. I only picked up on a little bit, but something about thermal tee, baby blue, embroidery, stiletto boot, elbow patches. I couldn't make a lot of sense of it, but I guess she knows what she's doing.

Well, until Melonie is feeling like answering the phone, I'll be taking messages!

Toodle-Loo,

Penny The Pony
