New Teardrop, New Summer Show Schedule!

10 Apr

Last summer our 1974, custom built wooden Teardrop breathed its last on route 85 just 20 minutes outside of Cheyenne ( see Sept 25th blog post for all the gory details!).  The good news is it prompted us to start the search for a newer, more reliable Teardrop.  If you have ever been in the market for a nice used Teardrop, you know you have to jump on it when you see something you like!

A few months ago we were shopping in Fort Collins on a Saturday when I decided to look on Craigslist as we were leaving Costco’s parking lot. “Dave, pull the car over and look at this ad for a Little Guy Teardrop” I said. After scanning the ad for details and location, we turned the car around and headed for Aurora CO. I called my cousin Janette who lives there and said, “Can we stay overnight? We’re looking at a Teardrop in your neighborhood”. Janette graciously agreed and offered us a new toothbrush for our unexpected and unprepared overnight. We looked, we bargained, and with a handshake agreement we were the owners of a 2014 Little Guy 5 wide. We returned to Aurora the next weekend, handed over a wad of cash and picked up our Teardrop.

Our new Teardrop has a TV and stereo system! Uptown!

The last few months we have been improving the galley, the interior and generally putting our own personality into it. Its now ready to hit the road as our home away from home during the summer art show season. We don’t have all our show commitments in yet but here is what the 2017 show season looks like so far.



We hope to see new and old customers at our summer shows! If you see the Rawhide Studio Teardrop on the road, give us a toot and a wave!



Rawhide Studio gets ready for the TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE!

6 Mar

If you haven’t heard about it yet, the USA will be getting a coast to coast total solar eclipse on August 21st 2017! I didn’t know how big a deal this was until I began researching the event. Well….not to be left out, we have developed an earring so ladies across the country can view this awesome natural phenomenon in style! Simple, elegant, lightweight, sparkly and as always, hypo-allergenic. The Solar Eclipse Earring‘s  inner disk is a velvety shade of deep grey with flecks of nature’s glitter- mica. The outer, “corona” disk is a shimmering gold. All this style for only $21 and so wearable any time of the year.

If you are interested in finding out where and when the best viewing opportunities will be, visit https://www.greatamericaneclipse.com/

Casper Wyoming is proud to be one of the top ten destinations in the country for optimal viewing. To find out what is happening in Casper for the great event, visit http://eclipsecasper.com/

RIP Woodstock!

25 Sep

Dave and I had a busy summer spreading Rawhide Studio jewelry around the country at art festivals and fairs. So busy that my last post was in June and featured a  loaded up and read to go on the road with us Woody. We had some great times with our Teardrop this season but alas, on July 20th at 6:00pm, on Rt 85, just 20 minutes from home, we lost Woody in a road accident. It was sad to see Woody on the side of the road but at least no one got hurt. Nothing will replace the homemade, quirky nature of our Woody but we enjoyed the Teardrop camping experience so much that we are on the look out for a new one. Got Teardrop? Will buy!

Here are a few pictures from Woody’s summer. The good and bad of it!
