Boots



Ah.....my cowboy boots.
Love these boots...so comfy.










Who doesn't love their boots?





I found this great vintage suitcase this week.
Don't you love the shape?




I even love the funky remnant of a luggage tag on the side.



It will make a great craft carrying case...
...perhaps I will bring it to Silver Bella with me in November!

I'm thinking it might have been for shoes....
all these pockets are open at the bottom too.

It's deep enough for a cowboy hat though!



...and so it begins!
The leaves are starting to turn!


Putting on my boots and pulling out my hoodies and warm sweaters...
:) Happy Fall!

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!!!

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...

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.

sandra said...

You can never have enough boots!!! I love my cowgirl boots too and I just bought a pair of riding ones. Love your photos.

My Symphony

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.

Dear Laura,
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!
Hugs,
Suz

Hi Laura,
