We knew someday we would be back in a home so while traveling we collected as much unique stuff as we could haul, a year at a time. We would fill up the RV, and then head back to Va to deposite it in our storage container or leave with friends to use it and watch it for us.
I saw something about Panquitch, Utah the other day and it reminded me of eating at a local restaurant in town there and my wife was admiring a paper towel holder that was on the table. It was made out of metal with a cowboy on a horse. You don't see these at Walmart. She asked where they brought it and the lady said someone came by and they brought a few of them. The next question, will you sell one? $32.oo later we owned it and wouldn't take anything for it now. We use it everyday and it reminds us of the traveling days.
Be sure when you travel to keep your eyes open because you may never be there again, even though you think you will. Things happen ,so seize the moment.
Here he is.

We also have some trivetts, not sure of the spelling, that we use for hot plates. They are real popular in the southwest but you rarely see them back east.
Everyday when we eat it again reminds us of the great times.
My favorite is the Death Valley with the -282 elevation on it. We wish we had more.

This is my all time favorite, notice I said my, not the wife's. A leather covered Buffalo Head from Quartzsite. It is covered in Blue Turquoise, trimmed in tan leather, has coyote hair between the horns and some type of breast bone, with a leather small pouch with a small piece of paper inside quoteing some type indian saying, with feathers and a coyote tail to top it off.
When we built the house, the center section was devoted to Southwestern and we even had the builders set large pices of wood in the ceiling for hanging the special items.

I had seen this design in El Paso,Tx when we were there, so I decided to paint this in the Southwestern room. My wife was in shock when she saw the size, but she has grown to like it. It took 6 hours just to lay it off not counting the painting.
