Well, Well, Wellies

It’s a gross rainy Thursday here in DC. I couldn’t be less inspired. Seriously. Gloom city. The only thing that is not dark and dreary are my bookcases. Why? Because of my fabulous new bookends that I bought from Home Goods over the weekend when trying to find a garden stool for a client’s Living Room. I love these bookends for a lot of reasons, one of them being that they are a shiny white, but mostly because they are tiny little boots! How adorable is that?!? It makes me happy just to type about them.

Shiny white boot bookends

Anyone that knows me knows I have a serious crush on Hunter rain boots. I have them sitting by my front door at all times, almost as a piece of art, except on days like this when it’s more than necessary to slip them on.  I have also used my boots as a prop in a photo shoot.  And I am not the only one. Hunter wellies, other rain boots or any tall boots in general have been making their way into print lately,  adding a personal touch and lived-in feel to each interior.

Here they are in my house:

And in others:

Now, if you’ll excuse me (and my wellies),we have to brave the outdoors to head to a meeting. While I am out, I have some errands to run in preparation for our trip tomorrow! YES!  Take me home, country roads!!

      Thank you! I love that piece too. I saw it in an antique store years ago and had to have it. Reminds me of playing with me mom! Onsies, twosies:) Thanks for the comment!

    Had my wellies on this AM to take out the D-O-Double Gs. Shane does not understand why I get to leave my boots by the door and his shoes have to go in the closet. Thanks for the pictures to support my argument.

      You are most welcome! They are little works of art!! Although, I feel Shane is going to have a serious counter attack ready to go if you tell him that 😉
