OH......"These boots were made for walkin'......."



Oh boy....am I gunna be in big strife this time or what??...lol

Above is a picture of my recent imports from the states, supposedly to list for sale on either of my websites.....but "lansakes" (just thought I would keep my cursing in line with the era..lol) I dont want to part with any of them.

As a matter of fact....one pair has already made its way into my prim home and been added to my already indulgent collection....

.....but hey....you HAVE to be honest....who could resist these little gems????

Wow...where have they been...? What have they experienced.....?
Well.....you're gunna be sorry but........here is my theory.....
(stop rolling your eyes Jackie and just cue the dreamy music and smoke haze!)

"...they belonged to a boy or a tom-boy (had to have.... coz surely no self respecting little girlie-gal's boots would have ended up like this...lol)...but my bet is with a boy.
His name...probably Isaiah, Elijah ....or Jebadiah. He would have worn them in the "crick" while untanglin' his fishin line' or frog catchin'...kicked along a big ball made of rags or a tin can and probably run a thousand miles...most of them to get away from the attentions of a little girl called ???....Hettie...no wait......Permelia,...yep that's it!...lol. 

They would have been worn to school, to church, to funerals,  to picnics and when forced.... to dances. He probably only owned one pair and even then...they were not retired after he had outgrown them...oh no siree!.....they were passed down to his little brothers ....Zachariah,  Nathaniel and Abraham.........
Wow....no wonder they're so worn out!!...."

Ahhh....but I digress....Now...see how I get myself into trouble?
 I really should be working out which of these others, if any,  I am going to pop up for sale.(Truthfully...for what they cost me it should be all of them!!!)
I have been a little bit good...I sold one pair (but I already have a pair similar....hee hee!)

Oh well....had best go and procrastinate over it a bit more.....and go and strategically hide the ones I have already kept somewhere within the bowels of my primitive display so hubby will be none the wiser...lol.

As long as I dont wear them I should get away with it......after all I think that sometimes he thinks that these would be more a fitting pair for me to wear

...lolololol or shoud I say "cackle cackle cackle"....now where on earth did I park that broomstick!!...
Oh well...keep your eyes peeled on the websites....but maybe you shouldn't hold your breath just yet...lol
Bye for now

  1. Roll my eyes? Never. Maybe after that uncalled for comment a pair of those amazing boots will find their way under my Xmas tree? Just kidding.
    There are days when I think Clown Shoes might be more fitting attire for your delicate little feet.
    Keep the stories coming......love the way your mind works.

  2. Hmmm clown shoes???....I could wear my thick socks with those in winter...plenty of room!

    Dropping hints for Christmas already??....geez girl...you're getting in early this year...but sorry to say that your "clown shoes" comment over-rode my "eye-rolling" comment...so I am afraid that you now owe me a really nice pressie under the tree....no clown boots though thanks.....but one of those lapel flowers that squirt water would come in real handy...real handy indeedy!...lol
