Leather Laptop Sleeve

Once again, yesterday’s post got me in the mood for the one today too. Reminiscing about the country music of my youth, listening to the lone train whistle blow down the tracks, and this “leather-look” laptop sleeve takes me back to Kenny Rogers and The Gambler.

If cowboys carried laptops on their horses, I can guarantee they would have a laptop sleeve like this protecting it from the dust of the trail.

Western Tooled iPhone4 Case

When I look at this great “tooled leather look” iPhone case, I’m whisked back to the days of my childhood when we went to the Fort Worth Rodeo and Stock Show every year, everyone wore tooled leather belts just like this, and being “country” wasn’t cool. “Now I still act and look the same, what you see ain’t nothing new.”

Whether you were country before, or you’re country now, celebrate it with this cute little iPhone case. Because, baby, country is cool!

Some Like It Hot

I know Dean’s been doing most of the posts here, but I just couldn’t resist this hot little Habanero design! I love cooking and I love cooking with peppers! The hotter the better and you can’t get hotter than this great photograph of colorful red, green and yellow habanero peppers at a farmer’s market in New Mexico.

Want to feel the heat? Try this great recipe from Cooking Enthusiast! And don’t think I forgot the music. Who can resist dancing along in the kitchen with Robert Palmer’s Some Like it Hot?
