Leather Settee Sofa

Though small in scale, this turquoise leather settee sofa is large in style.  Aniline dyed leather is immersed in the dye solution, then coated with a pigmented resin and clear-coating.  This protects the leather.  A pop of turquoise color is contrasted with dark brindle Brazilian hide and antique silver nail heads.  Dimensions:  30″ x 65″ x 34″.

Red Leather Bags

Ann’s red leather bags take the “lug” out of luggage.  Wheeled carry-on small case has elegant matching handbags and totes.  Tooled red leather makes them stylish and durable…and definitely Texan.

Texas Crystal

You don’t have to be a cowboy to appreciate the beautiful hand-etched crystal with Texas scenes.  Longhorns, bluebonnets and boots remind even the city-slickers of the open range and it’s wild beauty.   Display them in your collection and enjoy using them, too.  They make wonderful corporate and client gifts, too.  Decanters, wine glasses and serving pieces easily pass for art pieces:

Texas Sun Hat

A good sun hat with a deep brim is a necessity in the hot days of Texas summer, so you might as well wear a hat with some style, right?  This one has 7″ deep brim and an “Alamo” style crown.   Great for men or women:

Texas Art

Everything is bigger and more colorful in Texas, and nothing says it better than these framed pictures.   Texas Art of framed maps and collages tell the Texas story with legends of oil and cattleman, cowboys and state maps.  Each one is filled with fascinating detail….and look carefully at the one of the Presidents playing cards!

Texas Bluebonnets

Give Bluebonnets

Texans love this time of year…the bluebonnets are blooming!  We love to visit them, paint them, take the kids’ pictures in them, and enjoy the beautiful weather.

But you can’t pick ’em!  So when you need to give a Texas gift, why not give one of Ann’s Texas crystal wineglasses with bluebonnets etched on them?

Texas Artwork

Classic images of Texas country life are the hallmark of photographer Laura Scarlato’s work.  Vivid colors and large canvases capture the feeling of a time gone by.  Equally adept in rendering vintage Chevy images as still life and Longhorns in a natural setting, Ms. Scarlato is local and we have three gallery wrap murals of her work:

Texas Crystal

Everyone knows we Texans ride horses to work, have oil wells in our backyards, and all our cows have horns, really long horns.  Right?  Perpetuate the myth when you give Texas crystal from Ann’s, such as these etched crystal glasses.   Images are subtle enough not to holler, but are a cheerful reminder that Texas is a great state as well as state of mind.

Western Wine Stoppers

It’s always fun to send out-of-state friends and relatives a Texas-style gift.  Make it something practical to remind them of our Lone Star state.  How about these wine stoppers?  Etched crystal make them memorable gifts.  From $49.50 each.
