Hatboxes and Cowgirl Boots

Hatboxes I have had for twenty five years. 
Boots size five (cause they are cute) that I picked up recently for almost nothing. 
They are leather and with bee's wax came to life again.

  1. Oh, those boots are great! And I love the technique you've used for your photos...very nice! I'm having a giveaway...hope you can stop by soon!

  2. Really like the antique look that you have given to the photos.

  3. Fun boots! Just a tad too small though:@)

  4. Look what you've done! Now I have, "These boots are made for walking" playing in my head. :)

  5. Love the way you did these pictures, Olive! I've been thinking I need to get myself a pair of cowboy boots.

  6. Above moves from L.I. NY to Ohio and thinks she needs cowboy boots, LOL
    Now I might buy too many dishes, but I have never bought cowboy boots! We all have our vices! :)

  7. Too too cute Olive!... reminds me of the Alan Jackson song "She's Gone Country"!... love them!... xoxo Julie Marie

  8. Olive, I want to do a copy cat of your photo shoot. FABULOUS Photographs! I love the boots, how cute and the hat boxes, adorable. Love your boots and boxes shoot. I have boots and boxes but I couldn't get my pics to look so great. I love this post.

  10. Hi Olive,

    I don't remember when I found your blog and haven't been visiting any blogs for quite some time. Friday evening I discovered your touching series and cannot tell you how your stories are touching me. I can relate to portions but not all. Your writing is such that I can picture every single scene. I hope you are printing these out because they are a treasure well worth passing down to the generations to come. That said, I cannot wait for the next installment.

    Take care sweet woman.

  11. Love the texturing. I used PicMonkey recently, and posted some of my experimenting. Looking forward to your next installment. xo

  12. I loooove those cowgirl boots!! Your texture on the picture really adds to the vintage feel of the picture. Thanks for stopping by, I had to laugh at your comment about having enough flower pictures to start another blog! I was thinking the same thing when I was working on the post. I always love hearing what is growing in your southern garden. Laura

  13. Hi Olive. Oh, I do love those hatboxes and the cowboy boots. They look great displayed like that, and I love the photo effect that you have put on them. Very vintage looking!

  14. Oh Olive, what a cute display! I love those hat boxes!!

  15. Cute pictures. I have some leopard print hatboxes in my master bathroom. Love how you aged your pics too.


I adore your comments. They are like finding unexpected chocolates. olive
