Hello to Spring! Linen, Antlers & Horns

Welcome Spring….and my love of linen, antlers & horns


Kudu lamp with linen shade, vintage Blesbok & Reedbok mounts on linen.

A South African still life I made from vintage horns I have re- purposed for new life in linen.

This Spring also brings two new finishes to the Heritage Game Mounts line:

BlackBerry Finish

BlackBerry is a beautiful black distressed finish with highlights of red & umber that compliment black horns.

Old World White Finish

Old World White is a white patina finish that looks terrific with naturally sun bleached antlers & as an elegant contrast to colored walls or stone.

The Old World White finish has an Alpine Ski Lodge feel
The BlackBerry finish compliments the black horns of the vintage 1980 Steinbok

Another new addition to our line is custom monograms to the Legacy

Black bold face on gray linen
Brown script on natural linen

Vintage Blesbok on linen

Texas Designers Offer Handsome Gifts for the Sporting Lifestyle

Recently while showing in Holiday Boutiques in Houston and San Antonio, I had the opportunity to visit with some very creative Texans – with unique finds for the sporting style in all of us.

Having time to visit with these talented designers put their art in such a personal light – I had to share.

Clint Orms, a renowned silversmith who works out of Ingram, TX with designs so fresh – he might have just stepped out of the fishing stream.

Sterling silver and gold trout buckle – Martin 1819.

 The Safari lifestyle is represented with several Big 5 offerings – my favorite below – look close at the elephant skin on the buckle set.


Another African Big 5 – featuring a drop lock Westley Richards. Clint works in sterling, rose and yellow gold to create handsome works of art.

  It was such a pleasure to visit with Clint and Jim and share some fly fishing tales, and marvel over one buckle with a tiny, real bead head nymph on it!  Clint offers so much more…ladies fashions too. Visit

Another new friend from Houston is Gardner Landry who makes a fabulous 100 percent 3.5 ounce linen camp shirt with an original hand-dyed pocket – called The Sessanta Camp Shirt.

Whether you are a sporting participant or spectator this shirt marries minimum weight with maximum style.
Each shirt features an original hand-dyed pocket – no two are exactly the same.

 The Sessanta is a contemporary interpretation of the  Dolce Vita-era Italian shirt worn by Gardner’s grandfather in the 1960’s. 

A long sleeve version of the Camp Shirt is also available and I think looks terrific for the ladies as a tunic with the sleeves rolled to 3/4 length and worn over skinny jeans.

 Rita Schimpff with Heritage Game Mounts has a new offering to pair with her vintage and new antler mounts – the German Shooting Target.   These colorful lithographs pat’d in 1897, were used in Germany for small bore target practice.  Rita has reproduced them and put them on a hand striped pine disk.

Use them alone on an easle or two or three together paired with antlers or art.

 The series includes the Stag, the Hare, the Boar, the Bear, a Chamois and a Roe Deer in either 6 3/4″ or 8 1/2″.

Happy Hunting!
