Another favorite coffee table book...Stables by Kathryn Masson. I could sip wine and flip through these pages of gorgeous barns after gorgeous barns all day. When building our barn I found so much inspiration from barns pictured in this book. If your building a barn, dreaming up your own horse heaven, or love all things horses, I highly recommend this one. It won’t disappoint!

Heres the thing...I hate to read, yes I said it. If it isn’t a magazine then I’m just not into it. This hate for reading probably attributes for my many typos and lack of spelling abilities. I swear I’m actually not a dummy just spelling challenged. TRUTH: I’ve already used spell check about 5 times in writing this. There is however a loop hole in my dislike of books...I love love love coffee table books. Mainly because if we are being honest they are mostly pictures. This Jackie O book is no exception. The photos capturing her life with horses are almost as stunning as she is. And who knows maybe one day I’ll read it, for now I’ll just swoon over the photos.

"He knew what the end of a day on horseback felt like, salty with sweat, dirt under his fingernails, and a mind whitewashed from all worry." - Elizabeth Letts, The Perfect Horse
Such a great read! @elizabethletts puts into words what's felt in the heart for our horse companions. I may not be able to put pen to paper and spell it out, but when my brush hits the canvas, my mind fills with memories of "riding alone on a quiet path with only the mount's breaths and cadenced footsteps for company." It's a peaceful joy that keeps me painting horse after horse, each with their own special personality. They're kind of my favorite 💕 Back to working on War Horse! Update coming soon! .
