The Boots And An Interview by Giorgina!

Hey y'all. Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments yesterday. Wow! You are the best. I've had several questions about my boots shown in yesterday's posting. No I did not wear them with "my going away dress". If I would have found a pair like this, I'm sure I would have wanted them! Instead I had ivory leather heels. After wearing them a lot, I packed them away before they were ruined.
Well, just because I'm sentimental like that!
These boots have seen many miles on my feet. Several years ago, we were in Branson, Missouri on Christmas Eve. We happened to go into a shoe store that sold shoes to the show girls for many of the theatrical events around Branson. Of course my heart melted when I saw these adorable boots. However they were white. I wasn't sure I would wear white boots that much. Mr. RP thought they would make a great Christmas gift, so we bought ivory leather die and after dying them ivory, I've been wearing them ever since. Of course I had to add the lace for shoe laces. A plain white shoe string would NEVER do. Would it?
I have been given the tremendous honor of being featured on the beautiful website Decor Medley by Giorgina. This website has great tips for interior decorating and many other awesome tidbits of inspiration and creativity. Please go over and visit Georgina. You'll be glad you did!
She was incredibly generous to extend an invitation to me for an interview and include me in the list of other wonderfully creative people that she has featured. If you'd like to read it, you can go here. Giorgina, thank you so much for your kindness to me.

I hope you all have a fabulous sunshiny Saturday.
If it is not sunshiny where you are, go take a look at Mr. RP and me, over at Georgina's place. We are squinting into the sunshine for you!
Love, Rachel

Oh my, my vow to not blog more than once a week makes for ONE long day. So much to comment on:
1) I ABSOLUTELY love the shoes and your "going away" dress is gorgeous. You mean you can still get into it? I AM SO JEALOUS! LOL!!!!
2) What a wonderful yard sale buyer you are - going back to pay your fair share! I had a yard sale once and decided never again. I do not like to dicker and some people are merciless! Now I just give to the Salvation Army or Goodwill.
3) I love your porch - BEAUTIFUL at night!
Thanks for such interesting posts AND see ya' next week :-)
