My Cowboy Boots ~ A Favorite Thing

I’ve been a Texan since 1969. I purchased my first pair of cowboy boots last month (red ones, no less). I guess better late than never.

So far, I have to say, I’m fairly addicted to them, as they are the most comfortable thing I’ve ever put on my tootsies. Thanks to twin sister for buying herself a pair not long ago. She assured me I needed a pair and would love them. She was right. They are already a favorite thing.

The other pair of adorable feet/boots you see here belong to my grandniece, the one I call sugar plum. It seemed only right to include such cuteness in my boot collage, don't you agree?

I’m sharing once again at the “A Favorite Thing” party, hosted by the lovely Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage.



  1. I love your new boots! I have a pair I bought several years back that I still love.

  2. Great boots! Shall I try a pair next time I'm in a shoe shop? Do they have any at all?????? Happy weekend! Regula

  3. I have never had a pair of cowgirl boots, although my daughter LOVES hers. When my son was a little boy he lived in his boots, day and night (I had to take them off of him!!) until he couldn't get them on anymore. They must be wonderful! Sugar Plum is adorable in hers! Linda

  4. I want a pair of boots! (I say this occasionally to my husband.) Yours are fabulous - I would be attracted to a red pair myself. Love, love your grandniece's pair, too. Now, I guess you are officially a Texan!

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!


  5. Well, it certainly is time! I LOVE cowboy boots! Always stylish.

  6. Cuteness indeed ~ love those sweet little feet. And I think red is a great color for your first pair (and they actually look comfortable).

  7. They are very stylish and do look comfortable. I have never owned a pair of cowboy boots but my other half has had a pair for many years, they are all leather and he gets them repaired in a little shop that he found that does all repairs by hand and does a really good job.

  8. My sister and her family lived in Texas in the 90s and she and her daughters always wore boots. Now I'm seeing the girls in school here in Atlanta wearing "cowboy boots". So everyone must be wearing them now!

  9. Hi fellow Mississippian! Love the boots! Can't believe you waited until now to purchase a pair, but as you said, better late then never! Of course, this is from someone that who does not own a pair, but have been thinking seriously about a pink pair! Visiting from A Favorite Thing Saturday and am your newest follower. Hope you have time to stop by Still Woods Farmhouse for a visit!

  10. I was born in Dallas and moved back here eight years ago to open and live in my Grandmother's historical home. Although my three sons have had cowboy boots since they were little (thanks to Grandpa) I've never had a pair. Your red boots just might have me putting them on my Christmas List this year. They are gorgeous!
