An example of our men's luggage is our waxed [...]

Coordinated Luggage Set

A coordinated luggage set has been a tradition in my family for years.  Upon graduation from high school, one gets to put away the mishmash of nylon and vinyl duffles that had heretofore accompanied us and graduate to a set of T Anthony luggage.  It was always a bit of [...]

Winter Getaway

I love the idea of a winter grownup getaway in early Feb, when its at its coldest and bleakest here and things have slowed to a dull roar.  Maybe I should institute an annual Valentine's trip we give each other?  Wondering if anyone has suggestions for great warm Feb trips [...]

Wellington – Winter Equestrian Festival

In January I put on my travel agent hat, typically booking my winter horse show travel, Spring break plans and often looking ahead to the summer horse show calendar.  I update travel lists ('what to bring') and make sure I order anything I need ahead of time. When headed to [...]

Equestrian Stocking Stuffers

In our household, the grownups usually just get a stocking.  And yes, sometimes a stocking can pack a punch.  You know the saying, some of best things come in little boxes.  Although, I am not much of a jewelry person.  So, when I've been good, my stocking sometimes includes an [...]

Our New Work Tote, Just in from Italy

Endearingly called the Packer, we mean this in the finest AA show sense ;).  Made in Italy, The Work Tote is long on function and form.  Inside the Work Tote, a full length padded laptop pocket faces off against a long zipped pocket which inside has smaller pockets to carry all the extra-curriculars. [...]

Waxed Canvas Luggage

Our necessary luxury?  Waxed canvas luggage. Waxed canvas is the perfect material for bags and luggage: lightweight, water resistant, tremendously strong and tear-resistant and really good-looking.  The fact that is it breathable has saved me on numerous occasions coming back from beach destinations.  We love the patina it acquires, and the [...]

Horse Halter Hardware: Authentic and Tough

I love so much of what Steve Jobs had to say.  One of my favorite quotes of his: "Design is not just what it looks like, design is how it works".  He revolutionized the computer, phone and tablet markets with that principle.  I also loved his adherence to simplicity is beauty. [...]
