Time for new boots

These boots were made for walking

In the last few big walks I've done I've found that I've ended up with pretty sore feet which I can only put down to the boots I'm wearing - they've served me well but think it may be time to get some new ones.  I love my boots, they have travelled over many mountains and walked many miles, been soaked through on many occasions but managed to keep my feet reasonably dry and they've even doubled as a post walk bottle holder.......

CHEERS!!

I won't be able to bring myself to throw them away - they hold too many memories - so if anyone has any ideas what I can do with them ....... then please let me know ..... maybe I could stick a plant pot in them and use them to display a couple of nice geraniums!!  All I know is they're just too sentimental to chuck out!!

  2. I love the watercolor of the boots and the photo of them, too. They do, indeed, look comfortable. I like the idea of them holding a plant pot,

  6. Beautiful painting Sharon, love it!! I can understand how you don't want to throw them away. After all, as I see at the photo, these are boots with spirit :)
    There are some uses for old boots -I had an old pair myself and google for ideas recently- but the most popular seems to be the pot and it's very beautiful.
    Warm regards.

  7. Fantastic subject. I like paintings of boots and shoes. You can definitely put some plants in them. That is what I did with an old pair of rubber boots that I loved.
    Happy Creating.

    1. I like paintings of boots and shoes too and will definitely do some more - think they will end up as plant pots...

  8. Beautiful and charming painting of your boots, and a perfect representation of your passions in life. If you ever wrote a book, that would be the perfect cover!!!
