So two years ago, I dug 'em out of my closet, got the fabric bits, trinkets and acrylic paints and set to work. I painted plants and trees that represented the areas I have lived--Joshua Trees for California, Bald Cypress for Louisiana, red Hibiscus for Hawai'i, and Satsuma oranges (on the heels) for Louisiana. I added glitter, embroidered longhorn embellishments, and two celluloid medallions from a vintage children's western holster set to finish the boots off. Big ol' curtain tassels from Tuesday Morning add that romantic flair.
While these boots aren't made for walking, they sure look nice on an end table, and they remind me of rodeos in times past!
