Derby Day!

Horseshoe Frame, 4.5" x 4.5", $15.00

Hey everybody–Jess here. It’s the first Saturday in May which means it’s time for the Kentucky Derby! Having grown up riding horses, I look forward to Derby Day every year. I especially love the heartwarming stories, which invaribly lead me to pick my winnerfrom the underdog list. This year there seems to be no apparent favorite, so I’m pulling for Mucho Macho Man and trainer Kathy Ritvo. Aside from the fact that no female trainer has ever won the Derby, Kathy also happens to be a heart transplant survivor. Her story of recovery through love for the sport of horse racing is beautiful and moving.

In addition to the race itself, the festivities surrounding the Derby feel like a harbinger of summer: cocktails with sprigs of fresh herbs, outdoor parties, big hats. Our Horseshoe Frame is the perfect celebration of this day. It offers good luck (remember your horseshoe should always be positioned open at the top, or all the luck will fall out) and even includes a Mint Julep recipe for the traditional cocktail!
