To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.

Love those boots. I love cowboy boots - the more vintagey and worn looking - the better. I love all colors and pointed and rounded toe ones...I look forward to some cooler weather so I can pull out my cowboy boots...I even have ankle length cowboy booties as I like to call them!!!

Happy Fall to you! I've just had the best time scrolling down through your recent posts that I'd missed. It's always such a delight to stop in here. ~ Sarah
I used to have a suitcase almost like that. It was a green the color of a dollar bill. I used it so much it wore out. Love the boots. I need to get some more, my dog ate the toe off one of mine. Ann
I love cowboy boots. Ever since I saw how Rachel Ashwell wears them all the time, I think they are totally cool. I have a few cosmetic cases and I use one of them as a sewing case. It's the perfect size for oh so many things! Marcia

The boots are cool and so US of A! Autumn here too in France and the Brocante season is just about done so getting harder to source interesting Vintage pieces like your cool case; sniff...

Those are fatastic boots, Laura. But I'm really loving that old vintage case - it will be awesome for your craft supplies for Silver Bella!
I just found your site through the Elegant Thrifter. I love your quote by William Henry Channing. I am your newest follower.
Love your cowgirl boots! And that suitcase is great. I have never seen one with so many little cubbies. That will be fun to use.

I just pulled out my boots to brush up
and get ready for winter. Love this time of year when the weather changes. Yesterday I tore out all my clothes from the closet, Packed summer hats and clothes in boxes.
Pulled out Winter and rewashed them.
I need a new Pair of BOOTS. Loved the post.
You can never have enough boots!!! I love my cowgirl boots too and I just bought a pair of riding ones. Love your photos.
I painted this poem on my wall in 1990. It was wonderful to walk into the room with that daily reminder.
We sold that house years ago and I have not thought of the poem until I came here and read it on your site.
What a nice reminder.
Greetings from Prague, a wonderful city! I was just going to tell you what a neat carrying care the suitcase would make for Silver Bella and you said it! Perfect! It is getting closer!
Cowboy boot love, here! I have some,(enough?) but, I just ordered some new ones, called "poison"...here:
Love the suitcase, it will be perfect for craft items.
Hey Cowgirl now you just need to wear them with that cool fru fru skirt you got at Bouckeville.
Wish I could join you at Silver Bella...what fun you'll have!
I just got my first pair of cowboy boots last winter. Love them. Yours are so cute. Love that suitcase, you should see how many shoes I bring when traveling. I could use a case like that. Have fun with it.
The suitcase is adorable. I love how it is old on the outside and so pretty on the inside.
Love the boots and case! And yes, fall has begun here too... Love the cooler temps..great for getting out and walking in!!!
I love boots lined up in a row...and I'm really lovin' your suitcase.
