|Absolutely beautiful vintage sandwich case.|
Byron gave me an absolutely wonderful sandwich case with a thick glass flask and sterling silver box inside. I love it!!! (Even if he does call it a "foxhunting lunch box.") He also gave me a "foxy" stock pin with tiny ruby eyes. He wins Christmas this year.
I got to test out both on my last hunt of the season. Probably for the best that I have to wait to use it again, because I need to have the dry, cracked leather straps on the sandwich case replaced.
And what Christmas would be complete without a completely weird gift from my non-horsey mom and stepdad? Look closely, because the Christmas mare and foal appear to be swaybacked and wormy.
This year was also the first that I succumbed to horsey decorations on the tree. Why fight it and try to seem like a normal person? The bits hanging on the wall right when you enter my house kind of reveal the fact that an insane horse person lives here. I gave my fiance an ornament that looks like him riding his favorite lesson horse, and I just put a bunch of bits and things on there just because it's better than letting them sit in boxes. The shoe in the middle belonged to my horse in high school.
