~NEVER WORN BOOTS~
See these sweet boots? They are the loveliest pair of Victorian/Edwardian beauties I've seen in a long time and I just HAD to splurge on them! Sometimes I think I'm shameless in what I spend my mad-money on! But in my defense...while some of you make a daily visit to your local Starbucks for your favorite-latest-greatest-Latte I'm at home drinking a cuppa home-brewed tea and surfing the Net for antique shoes! :)
I'm just sayin'.....................
~ORIGINAL SHOE STRINGS~
For the longest time I've searched for a pair of vintage WHITE LEATHER BOOTS and even signed up for eBay reminders when something new was listed. But...the auctions always went too high for me and even now if you look there is a pair offered at $799 (Hello? Are you kiddin' me???)!!!!
That just isn't EVER gonna happen. I'm not even willing to spend $100 on a pair.
So...I kept looking...
~THE SOFTEST LEATHER~
And then one day a couple of weeks ago a pair came up with a BIN price of $65. I scanned the ad super-quick and did a once-over on the buyer's feedback before hitting the Buy-It-Now button! The boots came a couple of days ago and honestly I was speechless when I took them out of the box.
The shoes have never been worn and look to me to be about a 5 in today's sizing! Dainty and petite and I'm pretty sure they are Kid Leather. The stacked heels and soles are also leather and I love the aging patina on them. Very, very sweet!
Pays to patient!
~BACK IN THE STUDIO~
I'm back in my studio today working on more new product for my website!
(See...told you I wasn't going to stop painting pink roses!) :)
I especially LOVE to paint them on baskets!
Hope your Thursday is wonderful!
Love to you...
