Best Find Ever: Lucchese Boots

See that 1883 label there above? 
They are Lucchese.
Squeal, dance, shout. 
 Pioneer Woman gives a pair away once and awhile. 

I found a new pair just like these for sale now for $585.00. 
The name of these are Blue Goat Boots.
We paid $20.00 after Joe haggled a bit with the young girl,
at the garage sale. 
They are my size exactly.
I probably should sell them but sometimes you should treat yourself. 
This time that is what I am going to do.
If they are knock offs do not tell me.

They fall into the category of My-Best-Find-Ever.

In Olive Out news today is my baby sisters birthday and I am taking her out for lunch.
 I call her Terrible T. 
She is sixteen years younger than me and I am just about her second mother.
 Proud to be.
My gallbladder is being whisked out on Friday and then we get back to our normally abnormal schedule.
Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers because I am ready to feel better.

happy days


  1. Ooh Olive!... I am in love with your boots, and yes, you must keep them!... (or send them to me, tee hee hee!)... JUST last night I saw some Lucchese boots I was drooling over in the latest issue of "Cowboys and Indians" magazine I just bought (love the gorgeous clothes and jewelry in that!)...what a great find and even better price!... prayers for you that all goes well with your surgery... much love, xoxo Julie Marie PS Have fun with your sister for her birthday lunch, my little sis is my best friend and we are having her birthday lunch next week!

  2. Beautiful boots Olive, I LOVE the color!!! I definitely think "You should KEEP THEM"!!!
    Happy Birthday to you little "Terrible T"!
    And about your gallbladder. "I had mine out when I was 20years old". BACK IN THE DAYS when it was a BIG SURGERY...You are SO LUCKY it's today when you will not even be DOWN and out from it...AND You'll NEVER MISS IT! My prayers are ALWAYS with you and your family. "I'll be sending extra JUST FOR YOU on Friday"! Then after the surgery "You can KICK UP YOUR NEW BOOTS and go Line Dancing"!!!
    Big Squishy Hugs,

  3. What a great find! You scored!

    Gall bladder surgery will be over before you know it. It's one of the best things I've ever done. I know you know all that, but just wanted to reassure you anyway.


  4. Great boots. Love the color.
    Good luck on Friday. Hope all goes well. It will be a rough couple of days and then you will be amazed at how you feel.

  5. "stepped" in it good...real good! Being a Texas gal, I'm here to tell you there ain't none finer than Lucchese. Trust'll know the minute you put 'em on if they're the real deal or walking on butter! Come to think of it...I've never heard of anybody trying to knock off their boots. Being handmade, be tough to do.
    You take care and I'll keep you in my prayers.
    When you're all recovered, I'll teach you how to Cotton Eye Joe in your Blue Goats, you soon to be little goatroper you!
    P.S. I'm a size 6 in boots...just sayin'!

  6. What a great HAVE to keep them! I love boots in all shapes colors and styles! And this is the perfect time of year to do a little dance in them!

    Have a fun luncheon with your sister and remember, we are all thinking of you when you have your surgery.

  21. Olive, I have had my gallbladder out. It was one of those easy surgerys. But a friend of ours was on a cruise once and ended up in the hospital in Jamaica..Yikes...He said that made him come straight home and beg for his gall bladder to be taken out.You'll do fine, and if you've been having problems long, you'll just be happy to be well. Love those boots, get a picture with them on.:):) Smiles, Susie

  22. Fabulous boots, Olive! Can't wait to see them on you. Trust all goes well with your surgery and you're feeling better soon.
