Eighteen pair......and counting!!!


Regular followers of my BLOG would be aware of my passion for all things "old and prairie" and in particular my fetish for old victorian boots, about which I have written on a couple of occasions.

Well.......I have been on the scout for some for a couple of my customers and happened to come across a few lovely pairs....four to be precise....however as it seems to be with everything else in my life...this was not to be without dilemma...lol

The dilemma this time.....how do I sell them when they are just so perfectly prim & prairie and especially when I DON'T have a set like that in my collection???

Well the four pair quickly went down to three, then two...then one.....oops!!!..(be strong lassie and put at least one pair back)...aaaagggghhhhhh........back to two again, but very reluctantly!!...lol

I decided to keep these two pair
(youno coz I truley-ruley need them)


Anyways I have today popped the remaining two pair up on my Little House Primitives webstore for sale and I have run (very quickly before I change my mind...coz I really wanted the black ones as well...lol) with the other two to add them to my ever growing collection...


I thought (for lack of anything else to post about) I would share with you some pictures of my collection so far...

Soooooo.....I walked around and gathered my sweet little boots from all of their hiding spots around my home...and popped them all together on this old depression era box that I was lucky to find at work a few weeks back....

(SAFETY WARING:- Now try not to drool gals...its not good for the computer keyboard and definitely not lady like at all...lol)

...my high button boots...



my lace up boots...



and lastly but definitely not leastly (lol)  my ladies lace up boots....

Now ...I did say before that it was my collection so far...lol.
Yep...what can I say...I'm a sucker for them and I have been able to get my hands on a couple of ladies pairs, which are on their way to me as I speak......of course this will pose another dilemma...yep you guessed it.. do I keep them or do I sell them as initially intended.....

Well that my dear friends will have to be a question answered another day......in particular the day I recieve them, open up the parcel, study them, swoon over them (all dribble wiped away very gracefully with a cleanex...because I am kind of ladylike afterall), enjoy my quiet imaginin's of who once owned them....where they walked....what they saw, walk around and see where I could even possibly fit them at home.. try them on with my favourite blue prairie dress and ribbons (gotcha...lol...actually its a beige number not blue... just kidding...lol) and then repeat the process over and over until I guilt myself into popping at least one pair up for sale and then finding a permanent loving home for the other pair.......somewhere around here!!!

Lansakes...I think I am in need of a bit of an intervention....lol

Til next time.............

What a dfference a day makes.....

This last weekend I had the pleasure of spending Sunday afternoon at my brother and sister in-law's lovely home set on 2 acres with a gorgeous view of the great "aussie bush"!.

They are off to the US today for a business trip/holiday for 4 weeks and arranged a family BBQ to catch up before they left. For those of you who know me....you will know that this also meant playtime and lots of cuddles with my cutie-pie niece before she left!

The day was one of Sydney's best winter days in ages....sun shining , not a cloud in the sky and (dare I say it) even slightly warm-ISH!!!....lol


Anyways...the BBQ was great and Charlotte and I had fun chasing bubbles around the backyard (courtesy of the bubble blower that I spotted at the store on my way over (I knew it would be fun!).


I thought I would share a few pics with you (none of CJ chasing bubbles as I was the chief bubble blower and frankly.....got far too carried away to take any pictures...lol).

Nanny and Poppy bought her this litte desk and chairs
 ...so out came the colouring in books

"clevva aren't I ??"....well I admit I did get a little help!

Next it was out to the backyard for our "barbie"

Hmmm...what will I do while we wait for daddy to cook the BBQ .....
Hmmmm....thinking!!!!

I know...lets play with the pets!!
with Bonnie the border collie....
would you believe this is CJ saying "cheese!!!!" for the camera ??
Now with Bosco the cat...

How's your day been Bosco???

Awe come on..don't chew the girly shoes....hang on that tickles!!

Mmmmm...getting a bit sunny...
no matter I'll just pop on Aunty Chris's "shades"...

A great day was had by all....a great day indeed!!!!


NOW......onto to the title of my post....

"What a difference a day makes" .....
Look at the snaps I took while driving to work yesterday....
(very naughty while driving I know....but???)

BRrrr back to the wintery weather I am afraid...lol

Foggy!....

Foggier...

Oh boy!!.....
Can you see the car ahead of me ?...

Well that's about it for me for now.......
Thanks for sharing

Till next time..........stay warm!...

Aaaah...the simple things!....


We are all so busy nowdays aren't we ? ...at least I know I am..... and most days we are in such a hurry that we forget about the simple pleasures that life offers us.

I have been so busy lately that I haven't had a chance to do anything, let alone pop up a post of any kind. So..... I thought that I would sit down this evening, after having spent the day doing all of my oustanding chores (and boy were there alot of them), and jot down a few "simple things " that I am thankful for from today....they all cost little or nothing, but mean alot!

.....a short sleep in (no work today)...
.....hugs.....
.....sunshine.....
.....laughter.....
.....health.....
.....the smell of freshly washed clothes.....
.....an email from a friend....
.....a phone call from mum...
.....another from my sister in-law.....
....looking at my garden.....
....the satisfaction of a tidy house....
...a cuddle with my dog and cat....
...and lastly but by no means least....the phone call I received today from my niece...19mths old....cant understand a word of what she has to say.... but it was the most pleasurable experience of the day!...lol

Well that's it from me this evening.....not much of a post this time I am afraid....but I am about to go and have a sit down in front of the telly, finally put my feet up and have a nice hot cup of coffee.....after all it's nearly  10.30pm and I reckon I deserve it!...lol
.
Til next time.....
