Another Copycat Idea

When I was coming up with a copycat idea for Debbie's party I actually came up with two. This is the second idea I copied.

I received this Ballard's catalog in the mail last month and thought this was the cutest idea on the front cover. So my little brain got to work and wham!

I don't have boots like theirs, but I have my riding boots that stay on display in the sitting room.

So I placed them on the stack of books that sit on the floor.

Added greenery, a strand of pearls, and an ornament in the top and voila, the boots are filled with Christmas cheer.

  4. Well good grief, Kim - I like yours much better than Ballard's, no joke! They look great, love them on the stacked books - fantastic copycat idea, but Ballard might want to take notes from you :)

  15. Now this is a cute idea. And so appropriate with the hunt/riding theme. :-) Don't knock them over when you go to sit on the sofa. Tell Bailey to be careful!

  20. I am so happy you showed this! I've been wanting to do something different on my front porch. My daughter has some rain boots with a peacock feather design on them. I think I'll use those boots, add greenery, and peacock feathers! Sounds like an upcoming post!
    Thanks for the inspiration!!!
