Rain Boots in Decor

These Boots Are Made For
D E C O R A T I N G !!!
Have you noticed all the rain boots showing up in decor photos?
They've become the chic'est of accessories.
See how Courtney of French Country Cottage recently used them when showing off her bathroom?
They immediately bring the feeling of spring into a vignette.
Filled with long stemmed flowers and branches...
they create an instant sense of spring.
Pretty yellow boots filled with daisies create the cutest of door decor.
Fun at the front porch steps.
They make such cute whimsical planters.
Seems any kind of rain boots will do...from utilitarian black to pastel florals and
hot pink!
Don't have a pair sitting around your house?
You can pick these up at Pier 1.
They are ceramic but look like a mottled green pair of boots.
They'd be so cute with forsythia branches jutting out the top.

Thanks for all your advice on getting well.
Sometime this afternoon I took a turn for the better.
Sore throat much better and I'm at least coherent now.
Another couple of days and I'll be out running around again.

Don't you just hate being sick? 
You have all these things you planned on doing and 
you can't do any of them because you feel so crappy.
I am glad that I at least got to be sick at home with all the weenies.
They didn't mind it one bit.

How beautiful. Love them, and they make me smile and think of summer.

We have to leave out boots out in our living room because we use them so much. I guess you can say they are now part of our decor :)

I need some twigs to put in them!

Sonia said...

Sorry you have been sick! I have been fighting it for 19 days now :/ I'm getting a whole lot of nothing done over here. I just adore those rain boots on the fence, I might need to hit a bunch a yard sales and do that on my fence! Feel better
xo, andrea

I finally took the sled off of my front porch. Walked by it so many times I forgot it was there.

Thanks for the inspiration, have a pair of red polka-dotted rain boots that would look GREAT on the porch. You always inspire my creative side! said...

I don't know where I've been that I haven't seen all these boots until now. they're fantastic!! A big dose of happy. Sorry you've been sick. We need some serious spring to clear up the air. Feel better :)

Oh Nita!
after seeing these photos I went and pulled my rain boots out of the closet and stuffed them with faux flowers and ribbon and placed them out front by a front column : )

So cheery! Thanks for the inspiration! Come by and see the royal bunnies at my house ....

Happy that you are feeling better. Love all of the pics. the boots on the front door are really cute! Here recently, if you're going to wear those boots, they better have some warm liners!

Patti Willey said...

I have not! But I bet they'll pop out now! Love that darn Yellow Double Wood Door! Love!

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

I'm glad you're feeling better. The pictures are just lovely and make us forget what wellies are really for: rainy days... Did you notice the sun is shining on every picture? Might make me feel in love with them all over again : I loved them when I was a child as they were associated with holidays!.

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Very cute! I have a couple pair and they are the one pair of boots left by the front door that look great. Hope you are feeling better.

Kit said...

They sure make one smile, don't they? I just may have to get me some.Kit

Donna White said...

Glad you are feeling still should have gotten a throat culture. I'm gonna tell your Mom! ;-)

Traci Creel said...

And I just passed on a pink pair at the Goodwill. Whatever was I thinking? Glad to hear you are feeling better. I was down sick too and my girls never left my side. What would we do without our dogs?

Diane said...

I love the idea of decorating with boots. Thanks for sharing this and maybe I'll go country with mine!

Cindy said...
