Running with the Waterboys and Spirit

I love to run - great way to get some cardio exercise and to clean up the cob webs in the head. It is always tough to get out the door but once you do, the run usually comes easy. Last night was the same, it is dark, cold and not looking forward to it but still forced myself to get the shoes, tights and head lamp on. Last night I actually grabbed our old Walkman as I headed out the door and see an old cassette of the Waterboys inside. This great band hailing from Ireland, Scotland and the UK was true motivation as I running up the trail from our house. Feeling pain, cold and wondering why the hell am I out here at night running by myself in the dark with a head light on - well this song says it all

Man gets tired - Spirit Don't
Man surrenders - Spirit Won't
Man crawls - Spirit flies
Spirit lives when Man dies

Man seems - Spirit is
Man dreams - the Spirit lives
Man is tethered - Spirit free
What Spirit is Man Can Be

Fall, Tessa Hand Me Downs & Clogs

This fall, get yourself a custom pair of Tessa Hand Me Downs. We create our Tessa Hand Me Downs from recycled jeans, colorful scraps of fabrics, beautiful ribbon, embroideries, paint and lots of imagination. Our jeans and clogs look fantastic together. It was a crazy summer with our retailers and also us having such great sales on Tessa Clogs and our Hand Me Downs. We are busy stocking up and creating more new designs for our clogs, straps and jeans.

Check out our new Tessa Ribbon Straps. These amazing Ribbons Straps are on a leather backing and will dress up your new or old Tessa Clogs.

Our Ultimate High Clogs and Sandals have been a great success this summer and going into the fall we have them available in 5 great colors: Nut, Black, Jean, Light Pink and a vibrant Red. Pair them up with our Ribbon Straps - just fabulous. - Thanks for reading!

Business and Pleasure

After taking a quick peek at our Clog Blog - I notice that sometimes I do not even mention Tessa Clogs. Maybe that is because we try to revolve our life around family, play time and work. We truly love what we do and believe me, if you ever see us, our family is a walking billboard for Tessa Clogs. What brings us true joy is having this love and passion shine through in others that decide to make T
essa Clogs part of their lives. Melissa and Cory where married this summer and as you can see - her clog choice was perfect. With Cory's direction, we painted up a custom design featuring a Windmill. Just LOVE THEM - Melissa and Cory - thanks for letting us be a part of your wedding! Big Hugs!

We are always trying to conquer the world and get Tessa Clogs carried
at your local hipster, Scandinavian, fashionista boutique. So, for those of you that can not travel to Vail to get your Tessa Clogs, please, let us know your local store that should be carrying us. We love the idea of buying local, buying small, helping out the butcher, the baker, the candle stick maker and the Tessa Clog maker. As we
all know, it still is tough out there, if you can, do buy local. But, if you can not buy Tessa Clogs locally, well then come visit us in Vail. If that is not possible, you can call, 970-476-8083, email or check out our web site
