As a little girl, I always wanted a pony for Christmas. Santa never brought me a pony. So in my late 40s, I started taking horseback riding lessons. When I turned 50, I got my first horse, an Icelandic named Blessi (Veigar frá Búðardal). Little did I know how much fun life with an Icelandic was going to be. Blessi has a unique perspective on life. I hope you enjoy reading about it as much as I enjoy Blessi. And you will probably read about my cats from time to time.
Halldora's design featuring leather, salmon skin on heel,
horse hair, and lava stones.
Halldora Eydis Jonsdottir , an Icelander whograduated from the London College of Fashion, has recently released her first collection of shoes and boots. Her high fashion footware is accented with natural products from Iceland including salmon skin, perch skin, lava crystals, horse hair, and lamb skin--all to give a look of natural features in Iceland. I love some of the detailing and would definitely wear some of these styles. I am not sure how I feel about the use of "pony skin from Italy."
